Lauren is a ballerina. I first met her in 2009. She was studying ballet daily then and I remember getting photos of her bruised and battered feet next to her point shoes. Then she leaped effortlessly across a hard stone floor. I got to take my daughter to watch Lauren perform for several years, once as Clara in the Nutcracker. Lauren’s passion and devotion to ballet is unwavering and she is now studying at the prestigious Boston Conservatory. I am so excited for her to have such an amazing experience. I love the quote from the school’s website, “Performance is the courage to make choices that bring you closer to the becoming the artist you strive to be.”
Lauren is on her way and I was beyond thrilled to take her headshots for her programs and auditions. She as devoted her life to her art and that is a rare beauty.
