I first photographed Sam for an ENCORE Magazine article about their 20th Anniversary Winter Gala. I've included images from their rehearsal for the gala. Sam was covered in a white parachute dress dancing dramatically to the classic musical piece Flight of the Valkyries. It was truly beautiful and it was only a rehearsal.
Months later, I am with Sam in the studio with this amazing little black dress with side cutouts. The session was short but fruitful. I love these images of Sam and her intense and easy connection to my camera.
