Today is the best kind of day- it’s my birthday! And I’m in Shreveport, Lousiana for the TNP workshop- it’s going to be two days full of learning and inspiration, and I can’t WAIT! And you guys know I’m wearing my favorite tulle skirt just to add an extra level of awesome :).

Today is also the best kind of day for another reason- a new ballerina session! I met Haley through Christa, who I met through LeeAnn, who I met through Kaitlyn! I really wanted a wintry/Christmas-y feel to Haley’s session, so she brought along one of the snow scene tutus from the RU dance department’s Nutcracker. Julie of Jewel Hair Design lended her hair expertise and created a stunning ‘do that I’m absolutely crazy about! We shot in and around the Union Station area and even climbed into a dried up fountain that’d been drained for winter. I was pretty sure we were going to get arrested for that one, but the security guys at the Capitol were totally fine with it.

Enjoy this new favorite session of mine! I’m off to prance and shoot around a bayou in a tutu!
