Moments of Grace

This past weekend Lucinda Rosell from the Royal Swedish Ballet School and Felicia Hedman who trained as a circus performer joined me for a dance photoshoot out in the archipelago. We headed to Björkviks havsbad which is reachable by buss from Slussen. The weather had been a bit rainy for a few days, but it cleared up in time for our photoshoot.

Felicia Hedman. Notice the wave hitting the stones in the background. I like how the shape matches Felicia’s arch.

Many thanks to Lucinda and Felicia for a fun photoshoot in the archipelago!
