Today was one of those days when I'm grateful for dance and the chance I have to teach ballet. Moving is such a large part of my life, and dance has done so much for me. I'm also psyched to be pictured in a published book! Yep, I'm in "Dancers in Motion: The Art and Technique of Dance Photography" by @susanmichal
because of the Salt Flats photoshoot. That's pretty cool to put on my coffee table... #yayforballet #heythatsme #dancersinmotion #photoshoot #saltflats
“Sodium is a poisonous, reactive metal that you can cut with a butter knife, while pure chlorine is a smelly, deadly gas, yet when added together they make sodium chloride, a harmless, biologically essential compound better known as table salt.” -Neil DeGrasse Tyson
It's just a little rain oh yeah
Although i was complaining about rain spoiling the dune photos. But this was really a blessing in disguise. Death Valley does not get a lot of rain, only about 2 inches for the whole year. It is considered one of the driest places in the world. So when it rains it is a sight to see. Badwater Basin which is famous for its salt flats gets water logged and offers amazing photography opportunities.

Sometimes we were a bit salty to each other 🍚
See the link in my bio for my latest travel blog! ✈️
So a couple of weeks ago, the Barnegat Bay froze. Honestly I usually find winter really depressing and it can be hard for me to be out in the cold for long, but I wanted to challenge myself and do something cool. I noticed that the frozen bay reminded me of the salt flats - which are SO a bucket list place that I want to do a shoot. I put a call out for a couple to join me on the ice and I got THREE! Seriously it was like 4 degrees on this day but it was SO worth it!!
