To make something special for the most professional aerialist she knows, a.k.a. Valeria Baigacheva, Elke made her a custom reel. And, because her and her daughter are into the craft, she also made a fun keepsake reel for the two of them.
"The Artistic Performers Reel is a gift for our Aerial Skills teacher. Mrs Valeria Baigacheva (http://www.artisticperformer.com/), is the most professional aerialist I know and as a thank you for teaching us some of her amazing skills we made her the reel. The reel shows Mrs Valeria, solo or in a duet with her artistic partner, performing at events.
The other reel is a souvenir for my daughter and myself. We have only little experience in aerial silk but we recently have done some small performances with the help of Mrs Valeria and I think watching the pictures with a viewer makes them a little more special as a souvenir then watching pictures bundled in a normal album."
The pictures are absolutely amazing! Looks like a lot of hard work, but pays off beautifully.
Have you ever done anything like this?
