DC cherry blossom ballerina portraits for LaBella Dancewear | Abby Grace

You all remember Katie & Ben’s engagement session from last week, right? Well, Katie is the reason this ballerina shoot happened! See, Katie’s the talent behind LaBella Dancewear, and after talking about cherry blossom portraits for their engagement session, it got the wheels turning for her when thinking about her next design. So she created this stunning pink-to-green leotard + silk wrap skirt, and found a drop-dead-gorgeous ballerina, Sophie of the Carolina Ballet, to model it for us. Now all we had to do was fight the crowds!

It turns out that when its 35 degrees outside, no matter how beautiful the spring blooms might be, there’s aren’t too many people keen to come out and photograph at sunrise.

Fortunately for us, Sophie was a CHAMP. We were standing there in coats in and scarves and Sophie braved the cold in a leo, skirt, and pointe shoes. Thank you, Sophie!!

And Katie, thank YOU most of all! Thank you for asking me to capture such a gorgeous design- I hope we get to do this again soon!
