Ballet dancer

One of four sisters who love to dance. This is the youngest, twelve-years-old, her mother told us. Photographed at the Newburgh Performing Arts Academy.


  1. I love the shadows in this photo and I'm glad you mentioned that she is twelve. That explains her tiny waistline. She looks older to me, or perhaps more mature. Very beautiful.

  2. I love the way the purple fades into black. Yes, her body looks twelve, but her face certainly doesn't.

  3. Stunning portrait. Love the play of light and shade, as well as how the hard edge delineations compliment the subtler softer gradations throughout. The color of her skin, her leotard, and the background all harmonize nicely. Her lilt pose is imbued with a delicacy and grandeur natural to a born dancer. I'm sure she's going to have an amazing life ahead of her.
