There is something so simple and so beautiful about ballet. To watch a young girl move in such a way that does not look possible but at the same time looks effortless it is beautiful. Over the past several years I have photographed many ballet recitals but this was my first private portrait session with a dancer and it did not disappoint. Nikki is a Charlotte area senior in high school. Nikki has been dancing for all but 3 years of her life.
