    Vibrant Bellydancer

    I had the opportunity to photograph Reina Karizmah: a bellydance performer, instructor, and choreographer. She's so fun to photograph because she knows how to work the camera--her facial expressions, her hand movements, and her body language all blend together seamlessly as if she's performing on stage (maybe her training in acting has really payed off!). I've always admired how she was never afraid to just be herself.

    Reina is promoting her services. You can contact her for a consultation at:

    I love her costume's vibrant colors!

    Gorgeous!! This is my absolute favorite of the bunch.
    I love the fall enviroment--it brings depth to the photo.
    Happy Thought: #91 "Warm, fluffy clothes and towels, fresh from the dryer."
