Boston Ballet: Pricked Dress Rehearsal: Études

It's such a thrill to watch a live performance of the ballet and I'm so grateful to be working with the Boston Ballet  for costume production, opening nights and on occasion photographing from the wings!

Last night I had the honor of attending the Dress Rehearsal for the Boston Ballet's newest production: Pricked, a repertory program with the first being the breathtaking "Études", an ode to classical ballet.

The other two pieces in Pricked are making their American premieres, "D.M.J" is a heart-breakingly beautiful piece while "Cacti" (with real cacti on stage) is invigorating, powerful and truly a work of art.

As is the Boston Opera House. Without the hustle of the crowds and ushers, it really was a treat to take in the beauty of the interior, and also pick a different seat during intermissions. :) During a dress rehearsal the curtain stays open and the artistic staff, including director Mikko Nissinen, choreographers and ballet masters interact with the company of dancers.

So, with only the orchestra between me and the's a look at Pricked: "Études"...

Opening night is TONIGHT, May 8-18.






The Hamilton's V

I'm always honored and excited to photograph the Hamilton's. This was the fifth time and I can't believe how big the boys are getting!

They're always a bundle of laughs and such troopers when I ask them to pose in graffitied tunnels and abandoned dilapidated houses, not to mention scramble around in reed fields.

We shot this on a sunny Easter weekend in Oakville, Ontario. It wouldn't be a Hamilton shoot without some awesome props, right? Check out the seriously adorable Easter eggs made by the family! We also brought along a giant chocolate soccer ball which the boys discovered during the shoot....

Thanks for the always GOOD TIMES, love you guys xoxo
