Breathe is a short film created from a very personal response to the mixed messages women are confronted with in the media today. The film idea emerged from a conversation between two women about all of the things we do, almost subconsciously from a place of engrained fear or doubt. In spite of that instinctual behavior, we don’t live in a place of fear; we choose to be empowered and strive to quiet the negative voices from the world outside and those that rise from within.

When Pure Barre approached me to shoot a campaign for their On Demand services to show real women, their actual students using Pure Barre On Demand in real life settings - at home and on the go- I was thrilled. It’s rare to find a brand that wants to celebrate their customers in that way, plus I would be able to shoot outside of the confines of the studio! These women were incredible to work with!

Campaign for Downtown Boulder

Samantha CAmpanile

A professional dancer with the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet for the past 15 years, Samantha has recently retired. She agreed to this portrait session for my ongoing series, Pretty Strong. Pretty Strong is a series of portraits of female athletes who show that strength is beauty. Being a ballet dancer myself I was especially excited for this shoot. I feel there is an understated strength to ballet as it requires artistry that sometimes overshadows the athleticism. Samantha is beautiful inside and out. Her beauty shines best though when she is dancing, there is a grace, joy and vulnerability to her movements. Check back for more portraits from this series.
