I love when a creative idea grows to the point where I just need to get out there and try. The idea came as part of an Offbeat52 challenge where we were to submit images that were our own interpretation of the week’s theme. This particular week the theme was #BetweenWorlds and as always up to our interpretation. My first thoughts were to put a classical orchestra in the forest but that provided so many challenges… the top being… where do I find an orchestra? I decided that maybe a ballerina in the forest would fit the theme nicely and it would be easier to find a ballerina… right? Kind of.
I put the word out on Social Media that I was looking to find a dancer, in particular a ballerina with pointe shoes and a tutu. There were a few tags of people and I reached out to all of them. I connected to this wonderful girl and her mumma. We chatted and pulled a quick session together in the fading fall light. So grateful that they were willing to come out and play.
I used one light (OCF) camera left. I enjoyed the practise and play. I still would have loved to put a small classical orchestra in the forest but this rocked too.
Maybe one day.

These two are quite the duo. Watching them together I would say that Ashton is Kylie’s superhero… what he does, she does. She will even do her best to dress like him. The bond between them is fierce and I am sure will remain strong over the years, these two will be very close. It was great to be able to head out for a few photos without jackets in the middle of November and we certainly took advantage of the school holiday to capture a few photos.
