my little ballerina




MeMe never ceases to amaze me. Not only is she gorgeous, but her talent for ballet is unbelievable. She has such a wonderful build for dancing, so graceful. And she's flexible - something I am most definitely not. Ha. Oh, and she's the best model for my never ending photo shoots. She even offered to climb in a tree without me asking her...she's learned well. ;)
I'm starting to experiment with different angles and poses for my photos - what do you think? MeMe's ballet outfit had a rather poofy skirt, so I thought I'd go a little Marilyn Monroe-esque, with her skirt spread out around her. Unfortunately, that didn't work out so well since the skirt was a bit too short...

For you photographers, do you have any tips when it comes to posing models? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - I can use all the advice I can get! :)
