Joel Dance session | Minneapolis St. Paul Twin Cities, Duluth Minnesota | Ballet and Dance Photographer Emily Charais Photography

My sessions with Joel over the years never disappoint. One of the best parts of photographing people over and over is that you get to this place where your working relationship runs seamlessly. We are able to communicate in a way that makes our sessions run so smoothly that we get so many beautiful portraits in a very short amount of time. Joel always works really hard and rounds out his work ethic with the best sense of humor. We are either super serious or erupting in laughter. It’s a joy to work with him always.
