Campaign for Downtown Boulder
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.
