Kiana | Minneapolis, St. Paul, Twin Cities Minnesota | Ballet and Dance Photographer Emily Charais

I feel so lucky that this beauty found me before she moved overseas to dance. Our session was almost ruined by rain, but we decided to go for it and just take the moodiness of the rain be our magic. Kiana had such pretty lines and a quiet sort of beauty that really captivates in camera. We had our session in St. Paul this summer and I look forward to the day I get to shoot with her again.
