Collaboration: Dancer, Photographer & Makeup Artist

I was honored to be asked by my long-time friend/old-college roomie to do her makeup for a photo-shoot.
Ashley Lee is truly an incredible dancer with years of experience under her belt.
In fact, I used to be on the dance team with her in high school- Go Tour de Force! ;-)

The photographer, Lauren Emily Wydra, of Lauren Emily Photography took these UNBELIEVABLY beautiful photos! She is an artist in her field.
As a matter of fact, Ashley and I also went to high school with Lauren!
It was great to be able to collaborate something like this, using all of our talents to make this beautiful project.

The inspiration?
"We were going for the "grungy ballerina" look. We nailed it pretty well."
