Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing a professional belly dancer named Lara at San Francisco City Hall. The grace with which Lara moves made the shoot absolutely amazing. She quickly flowed from one pose to the next, each time striking an gorgeous pose. Thank you Lara for an amazing shoot!

    Super shots Melissa.
    The second pic from top (arms skyward) is very reminiscent of Alphonse Mucha’s art nouveau paintings (which is a good thing).
    Oh, and each time you mention SF City Hall I always think of how Marilyn Monroe eloped with Joe DiMaggio from that building back in the 50’s.

      Thank you Rod! I just did a quick search on Alphonse Mucha’s paintings and I agree. That image does have a bit of the same feel to it. I haven’t seen his work in years. Thanks for reminding me about his work!

    Visual stunners! I love the colorful detailing in her outfits and how you captured her essence and the flow of her clothing perfectly.
