Portraits in Paradise

Saturday, I had the pleasure of shooting with a young lady that left Montana at the young age of 14 to study ballet abroad. She is now an amazing professional ballet dancer who lives in London and performs all over the world.  Maria Sascha Khan, an extraordinary woman and multi talented being!  Maria and I spent a little time on the phone to talk about the vision of the project and agreed on the shoot date. Fortunately when the day came, it was sunny, relatively warm and gorgeous. We started in the Paradise valley and then headed south to visit a ranch in Mill Creek. The final location was a little school house near the border of Yellowstone Park where she attended grade school. The final images were taken in the last few moments of light on the porch of the school, now the home of a kind couple that allowed us to make photos on their property.

It was a wonderful experience. Such a treat!  And, my applause and many thanks to Maria’s mother Teresa Khan MacKay who brought her styling skills and intuition to the table and younger brother Master Nicholas MacKay for all the support, creative input and moving image capture.  Such a great team.  I hope to work with them all again soon.

enjoy the view!

Nicholas shot video and stills and was an excellent creative co-director
