It wasn’t surprising that it was Naya’s mom who bid on a Gift Certificate that I had donated to the Richmond Dance Society’s annual Gala fundraiser.   I was excited to do an artistic dance creative session with this young dancer!10351261_10152460728938233_254939162003813387_n1800337_10152460729488233_6272228014926103173_n10665702_10152460731468233_6292901878377393514_n

I’ve been photographing Naya for several years through Richmond Academy of Dance.  She’s always been a very skilled and talented dancer – even at a young age, she stood out!  She’s now becoming a beautiful teenage girl with endless limbs that are stunning on pointe!  I’m very lucky to get to watch all these talented dancers grow, and I look forward to continuing to work with Naya with her school.10672089_10152460729463233_4952269747744707254_n10365966_10152460729678233_6101265555017761684_n1618459_10152460730533233_1466819974254612720_n

I always look forward to my creative sessions with dancers.  Although I love all my other work with families and babies, getting to capture these beautiful dancers and explore my own artistic creativity is definitely my favourite thing to do!10687201_10152460729613233_4381880630464024677_n
