I loved working with this young dancer for her first professional dance shoot. Seven year old 𝕐𝕍𝔸ℕℕ𝔸 is an Itty Bitty Company dancer at Tempe Dance West. She was shy at the beginning of the shoot, but her little personality soon emerged and she was coming up with some fun poses before we wrapped up her session. I can’t wait to work with her again. Keep being fabulous 𝕐𝕍𝔸ℕℕ𝔸!
