I wanted to capture the lovely Carmen Caliente in a more personal way, so we headed to her favorite studio to shoot her zen time, which is her dance time.
Mari and her snake, Lazarus.
I must say, it was a bit of a gamble moving to Seattle. I was (yes, was) one of those people heavily affected by winter weather back east, and I wasn’t sure how I’d handle the rainy reputation of the Pacific Northwest. Good news! I’ve learned to love moments in the rain. I’m not going to lie and say I love it all the time…but, I’ve learned to appreciate moments. I love the way the gray sky makes colors seem brighter. I love the way the raindrops feel on my skin. I love the sound it makes on the tent when camping. Overall, I feel more peace in winter than I ever have before.
Here’s Mari, stretching in her rain boots! Carkeek park.
I’m only printing 10 of these…ever! They will be printed on absolutely gorgeous 16×20 metallic finish paper…this deluxe quality archival paper has a subtle shimmer to it that brings out the colors and depth in the image.
This image feature Ballerina Brittany Cavaco in the Meatpacking district of New York City. Each one will be signed by myself, and numbered.

Pointe shoes, rain, slippery moss covered logs…I swear I didn’t break her 😉
This is Mari. I met her on instagram, and we decided to set up a shoot in Carkeek Park. Of course, this being the Pacific Northwest, it poured. Didn’t stop us! We played in the rain and mud, while I awkwardly cradled an umbrella to protect the camera. She’s done ballet for a long time, and is now training to be an aerialist!
Ok, one more silly one!
