You guys, dreams do come true. I've been wanting to photograph a ballerina on location, a la the Ballerina Project, for quite some time, and the lovely Kerry of Cleveland Ballet Conservatory made it happen with Leah, one of her alums. Kerry said it best when she described Leah as "ethereal." That description couldn't be more true. Leah is a vision—so light and graceful—and capturing her beauty on film was the perfect fit for this sunrise session at the Cleveland Museum of Art.
Leah is currently a student at the University of Cincinnati in the CCM Dance program, and she'll be dancing with a ballet company in Florida this year. To say this lady is talented is a huge understatement. She's talented x 100.
