    Beautiful Ballerina: Oh So Bendy!

    Yes, folks. I'm excited to announce that we've had our first dancer come in for a session. Hip-hip hooray for Katy!!

    It was inspiring to photograph Katy because there were so many fun, twisty and bendy poses that she could do--things I've never thought of before! There were times during the session that I just watched in awe as Katy glided into positions she personally suggested. And what great suggestions they were!

    Photo #1: "And 1 and 2 and kiss, kiss, kiss"

    Photo #2: Warm and glowy and just sizzzzzzlin'.

    Photo #3: "Oops! Who spilled the cherries?"

    Here we showcase Katy's lovely long limbs at work again.
    AND! Check it out: We even put a photo of her fiance in the frame on the table. Now did we personalize, or did we personalize?!...YOU KNOW IT!!
    Be sure to vote for your favorite photo so that Katy can receive her free 8x10 print. The winning photo needs only 15 votes! Post your vote by clicking on the "Comments" link below.
