Magnolia Gaze | Pointe of View


Every Monday, I feature an image and backstory from my Pointe of View series.

Ivy is the only ballerina that I actually knew prior to photographing her for the Pointe of View project, so I was thrilled to be able to meet up with her for this beautiful shoot. We headed to a neighborhood in Bethesda, Maryland called Kenwood, known for its annual cherry blossoms.
