A downtown dance photo shoot to capture something I hope she never forgets.. I don’t think I could ever forgot the day I asked Aria if she wanted to take a dance class. Her eyes lit up so bright and her face just beamed with excitement! I will be honest, the second I found out I was having a little girl I dreamed of moments like this. Aria had always loved to sing and dance around the house so getting involved in a dance class would be so perfect for her.
Fast forward to now, two years later, she is still dancing. I am so thankful for the absolutely amazing academy she attends. The teachers, staff, all the dancers, and families are just fantastic to say the least!!
Their 2019 recital “The Greatest Show” was so beautifully put together. So many wonderful dances and so many hardworking people behind the scenes. Aria and I had so much fun backstage and we are already excited for next year!
After the show, I took Aria out to capture some photos of her. This downtown dance photo shoot was something I’d been dying to do with Aria. I was a little nervous to take her out and about after her recital. Being backstage behind the scenes is no joke, we were both beat. She may have been even more excited than me for these downtown dance photos though. From the second we got home she wouldn’t stop asking to head out! We decided to shoot with just her ballet costume. Which was such a hard decision to only pick one, her tap costume was equally as adorable!
The inspiration behind this downtown dance photo shoot was purely bright and timeless beauty. I wanted to of course capture Aria, her excitement and happiness, but also the details from her recital so we could always look back on that too. To say I am happy with the outcome is an understatement, I have tears in my eyes every time I look at these photos. I am so proud of this little dancing princess.
