DC ballerina portraits at National Cathedral | Abby Grace

Natalie might be my ballerina spirit animal. The fact that she came prepared with black pointe shoes without prompting, and the first look she put together for our shoot, it was PERFECT. Couple that with her reading my mind when she suggested National Cathedral as the backdrop, and it made for some of my favorite ballerina portraits yet!

I met Natalie in Paris last summer and had the most inspiring morning shooting with her in Le Marais, and couldn’t wait to get her in front of my camera again. So I was delighted when Natalie let me know she was going to be in DC this summer! And even more delighted when it all came together so perfectly.

Natalie & Ashley, thank you for being so much fun to spend time with while we shoot! I loved every moment. How about we say, maybe, Ireland for Round 3 next summer? 😉
