This cute storybook ballerina, Skylah along with her mom,  Ms. Woods, was one of my very first clients as a photographer.   It’ impossible for me to forget our very first session together.

At our first session Sky was a small, non-walking, nearly 1-year-old who didn’t mind the camera one bit (nor did her mom).  I was a Senior in High-School and my camera of choice was either a simple Kodak or HP point in shoot digital camera  (I had a variety of point and shoot digital-cameras growing up).

Skylah was full of joy and she really enjoyed being in front of the camera.  Now, Skylah is five years old and a charismatic dancer who loves Hannah Montana.   It’s beautiful watching my clients and their souls grow.

Thank you Ms. Woods and Skylah for another beautiful shoot!
