So you all know I’m a mom of 4, wife and photographer. But did you also know I’m a full blown dance mom?? I had no idea when my daughter started 2 years ago that I was signing myself up as well! Besides the constant picking up, dropping off, meal drop offs etc, there’s competitions, recitals, dress rehearsals and performances constantly. She was on Jazz N’ Place Dance’s Junior Prodigy team this last year and also had a solo that was so fun to watch (and lots and lots of work!!!!) But it really is all worth it, Gracie lives and breathes dance and when she’s not at the studio, she is making up dances with her friends, listening to music on her ipod or watching So You Think You Can Dance (and sometimes Dance Moms if I’m there to fast forward through the moms yelling!) She has been asking me to take some pictures of her doing some moves, she has been working so hard on her flexibility and jumps (kicking just about everyone in our family in the face at least once) and all her hard work is paying off. She truly amazes me. So determined and committed to something she loves with her whole heart.
Gracie just finished third grade and is 9 years old. (don’t mind her dirty feet!)
She is THE BEST. So happy and helpful and way too smart for her own good.
