Ana – Water | Minneapolis St Paul Twin Cities Minnesota | Ballet and Dance Photographer Emily Charais

Ana. Man this girl is special. I have worked with Ana a few times and invited her to be one of my project elements. I chose water for Ana because she has this deeply rooted connection to her breathing and I thought she would be perfect in water.I was not wrong. This gorgeous editorial style dance session was breathtaking from the first shot. We had such a calm time discovering new and unique ways to connect Ana to the water, and that deep sense of peace really made this session special. Ana was brave and untethered in her approach, and I felt so at ease creating with her! It’s amazing what can happen when there is full trust in each other’s creative process, and the magic just unfolds.
