Baton Twirling and Other Passions

"Whatever you want to do, do it.
There are only so many tomorrows."

I love this quote on my salsa instructors' website. I found salsa dancing at a time in my life when I needed to be reminded that I have a spark in me, that there is beauty worth finding in this world. I now dance on a salsa performance team and am blessed to be part of a wonderful dance family.

My love for dancing brought me back to myself, and in many ways, I think it opened me up to exploring other things I am passionate about, like photography. For that, I am so grateful! I have a feeling both salsa dancing and photography will always be part of my life.

My beautiful sister Monty has recently rediscovered a past love. After many years, she has picked up her batons again and is relearning how to twirl. I took some fun portraits of her on a recent visit, and her excitement and joy for this renewed practice were evident as she showed me her twirling moves.

There are only so many tomorrows, friends. What will you do to awaken a passion or pursue a dream?

Thanks Amy!! The ranch portraits are beautiful. Thanks for encouraging me and finding my best poses and light. The sessions seemed to fly by, yet so many poses and shots were taken. I can't wait to see everything. Love you!!!
