Wes Leigh and Joel 2019 Audition Session | Minneapolis St. Paul Twin Cities Minnesota | Dance and Ballet Photographer Emily Charais

Wes Leigh and Joel. More of my favorite ballet audition dancers. I absolutely love these two. I consider them good friends of mine at this point. Both are very talented ballet dancers, and the nicest people ever. They are both such hard workers and perfectionists, which is the easy way into my heart. They are both artists in their own right, and our sessions are a true collaboration in every sense of the word. These two are both gems, and I look forward to photographing them every time we do!
