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!
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.
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!
