Lily: Style + Grace | Northern Illinois Photography

Lily has style + grace. Photographing dancers is one of my favorite things to do. Their natural poise and quiet gracefulness make them particularly great subjects. Not to mention, the flexibility for the posed shots.

Lily was no exception. She is a sweet, genuine teen who is a pleasure to spend time with! Her mom and her arrived at the studio ready with outfit changes and everything she needed (which was incredibly helpful! I love when clients arrive ready to go!).

Lily is very laid back with a more quiet side, but she is dedicated and focused, and obviously, very talented. Add a little music in the background, and we started moving around the room and she got more relaxed as we moved through the poses.

Lily: Style + Grace

One of my favorite parts of this session was seeing how dancing has become such a bond for her mom and her…they have a beautiful connection, and mom cheers her on every step of the way.

Lily works hard at her dance expertise, and spends the time she is not in school at the dance studio or at conventions and performances. She was truly stunning, inside and out, and I cannot wait to see where dance takes her in the future.
