Zira | Minneapolis and St. Paul Minnesota | Dance and Ballet Photographer Emily Charais Photography


This girl is just full of energy and I love photographing her time after time because she works so hard to improve and each session is like working with a new dancer. Zira is so head strong and determined that working with her is a breeze! I loved our session this summer in Minneapolis to document her growth after her summer intensives. It was a gorgeous day and she shined for sure! Please enjoy Zira’s ballet session!
