Project: Graveyards | Brooke Spradling | Conroe Texas | April 2013

I've had this idea for a while, shooting a dancer in a graveyard. It's not original; there are plenty of scary tales told through shady black and whites or faded colors shot in cemeteries. But I wanted to look at things a little differently, because death isn't always a strange, dark occasion, sometimes there is joy. There is mysterious beauty.

Brooke was my first subject earlier this year. With her years of ballet and a heart of gold bent on serving God. She's lovely and a joy to be around and a fantastic dancer as well.
