[Check out www.realmeteens.com for more about my teen work – especially teen dance sessions!]

Over the past year I have gotten the chance to photograph several middle school dancers.  These girls have blown me away with their leaps, jumps, and kicks!  Seriously.  They work so hard during these sessions so I can get “the shot”.  It’s amazing.  Michaela’s parents bought her a Real Me session in honor of her 13th birthday.  Michaela is a beautiful teen that I have been photographing for the past 7 or 8 years.  I think that’s what made this session extra special for me.  Not only is she an amazingly strong dancer, she’s simply a beautiful girl with a heart for God and a smile that’s contagious.   I love watching kids grow up….it’s a perk of my job that I truly cherish.

Now….enough of my yacking, here’s just a sample of the crazy good images we captured the night of her session.  Enjoy!
