One of the best parts of being a photographer for families is watching the kids grow. Pictured here is a young lady that is far from being a kid, but one that I first met when she was just ten years old.
Capturing this young lady’s dedication and love for dance during the golden hour (and a bit into the “blue hour”) was what I needed in terms of creative inspiration. But I think it was the real-talk conversation we had that fed me the most that day. Understanding her world view as someone about to enter it gave me a new perspective and showed me what a bright, intelligent and beautiful young adult she is a year from becoming. I see her goodness and her potential. So watch out world, this one is about to enter it, not just with a step, but likely with a graceful leap!
