While working on my Fellowship panel I had the opportunity to create a very special portrait for one of my clients. Again, like I said in a recent post, this is the sort of thing I really want to be creating all the time.
For me a portrait isn't just about a face or a smile but it tells something about the person in the portrait. This little girl has been attending ballet for some time and with any luck will continue for years to come. So I wanted to create something that would capture this stage of her life while producing something beautiful. It also makes it easier to photograph a child if they can be doing something natural to them.
I created this ballet barre out of junk in our back garden (thanks to my husbands almost compulsive need to hoard) specifically for my Fellowship at the end of last year but I hope it will get lots of use in the coming years.
Here are some similar ballet portraits that I did a few years ago of my daughter along with one of her dance teacher's daughter. I really love these portraits and I will cherish the ones of my daughter forever.
If your little one takes ballet and you wish to have a portrait similar to this please get in touch. I am building my collection of tutu's so if you don't have your own don't worry, you can use ours. But of course if you have something of your own it just makes it that little bit more personal.
