Olivia’s Winter Dance | Minneapolis St. Paul Twin Cities Minnesota | Dance and Ballet Photographer Emily Charais

I’ve loved working with Olivia since she was just a young dancer looking for audition photos. Over the years we have crafted a fabulous working relationship and our sessions just keep getting better and better. We trust each other’s skills and artistry, which makes for a really great working environment for us both. This past winter we did a quick session in St. Paul and I love how they turned out. Olivia was a trooper, dancing in 20 degree temps. Ballet dancers are incredible that way!
