Aubrie | Minneapolis and St. Paul Minnesota | Ballet Art Photographer Emily Charais


I love working with Aubrie every year. Not only is she really talented, but she works so hard for me and prepares for her sessions well in advance of our sessions. When she shows up prepared and willing to do anything I ask of her, no matter how out of the box, magic happens. We make art, and that is so special to me. It is a full collaboration and I walk away totally fulfilled as an artist, and she walks away happy knowing she did her absolute best both as an athlete and an artist. Every. Single. Time.
