Portrait of a Ballerina

Counting down the hours until her first ballet class yesterday, when 2-year-old Emma would realize her lifelong dream of becoming a real ballerina.

I love ballet..many years and recitals here...this is the first year we took a break. My daughter dominants the soccer field and has retired the pink tutu! But it's so sweet!

Oh, I'm so glad Emma is going to be able to study dance! That's a precious picture. I remember how much I loved dance classes, and I attribute what grace I have to those classes I took over the years. We had a fabulous teacher, and it's amazing that one small town could turn out so many good dancers. Hope she enjoys this more than she ever dreamed! :-)

xo,

Sheila

i can just imagine her...was she in sheer bliss?

Penny for her thoughts! I wonder if there was a mixture of giddy anticipation and a tiny bit of apprehension. I see myself in my children so often, and I don't think that's a bad thing, do you? Hope the first class was beyond her expectations!

Good morning Melissa! I just know that Emma will love being a ballerina....she looks like an angel in her outfit. I enjoyed our little visit at dance last night (even though I was a little distracted to say the least!) but it's always a pleasure talking with you.

See you soon!

I peruse it every now and again, and wanted you to know how much I appreciate the effort you put into everything you do!

Just beautiful.

Please tell us, how do you always get such beautiful pictures of your children? Do you make them pose? Do you take the pictures when they don't know you are there?

They are always so lovely.

Hugs,
Joanne

I absolutely LOVE that picture! How in the world do you get your two year old to take great shots? I can't get my three year old to do anything when it comes to pictures!!

Heidi said...

Oh, I remember Lily waiting and waiting like this. She is still so serious about it even only at four.

Beautiful picture...pirsio
