Katy | Baltimore School for the Arts | Senior Portrait Session | Mt. Vernon, Maryland | Baltimore

Meet Katy! Katy recently graduated from the Baltimore School for the Arts, which is recognized as one of the top five public performing arts high schools in the nation! Katy is an incredible ballerina. Growing up, she danced at the Peabody Institute in Baltimore. Now she is a dancer for the School of Pennsylvania Ballet.

Katy actually reached out a year ago, but with COVID and multiple cancellations due to weather, she finally shot her session a couple of weeks ago!

The mood contrast in this shoot is so dramatic yet, beautiful. Katy decided she wanted to have her session in downtown Mt. Vernon (where she is lives with her fam). The moody, streetwear vibe made for some stunning headshots. The transition from streetwear to a pancake tutu and leo is striking! This gallery is seriously SO fun, here is Katy:

quick change! (i'm sure Katy has had plenty in her lifetime as a dancer)

... and lastly, a family pic! I love it when Des sneaks in some family photos at the end of a gallery, it's just the sweetest way to capture your support system.
