This is Eliana.
She’s been dancing since she was two and now she’s thirteen.
As far as I’m concerned, she’s pretty amazing. You should see her move. Honestly, this girl has skills.
I’ve always had a little bit of an obsession with dancers.
I was totally that little girl who really wanted to be a ballerina. I have very clear memories of dancing around our lounge room as a child, my Dad’s classical music collection playing loudly over the stereo.
There’s just something about the movement, grace and beauty that dancers possess.
It’s a little bit magical.
Eliana was so kind to say ‘yes’, when I asked if I could photograph her.
She was also a total delight to photograph, I found it very hard to put my camera away!
Thank you so much Eli and Andrea too (that’s Eliana’s mum). She came along to the session and was a wonderful help carrying bags, and assisting with wardrobe changes!
I hope you enjoy these images of this talented young lady.
