Monochrome Awards 2020 – Samantha Black Photography

So I’m grateful once again to have received an honourable mention in the 2020 Monochrome Awards for this portrait of my daughter.

I call it – Dancing Alone

I don’t get the opportunity to do many dance portrait sessions, but they are really special to do and are always close to my heart.

My daughter stopped ballet a few years back because she loved to tap dance much more and ballet just wasn’t for her. 

After 13 years of ballet she proved herself to be a graceful, strong ballet dancer. I always loved to watch her dance, her dedication was always on point (pun not intended!) and her dancing was beautiful to watch. 

I’m not sure why I’ve never shared this until now, but this image not only captures her effortless motion but for me there’s also a melancholy feeling which seems to draw me in, just that little bit closer.

My girl 🖤
