For the follow up to my Black swan shoot Cathryn once again provided the costume and I was able to get Sigrun, a Icelandic designer who makes Valkyrie inspired headpieces to lend me one of her pieces for this shoot. Our dancer this time (also from Lisa Marie Performing Arts) is Kaela Ferguson, blessed with amazing lines, suppleness and skill she shone through and all the more amazingly she’s just 15 years old.
Model: Kaela Ferguson, Headpiece: SigRun, Costume: Cathryn Brown
