When I was shooting the Fiesta de Santa Fe, I spotted an old neighbor, who told me that her young daughter was going to be dancing with other dancers in a show. I had my camera with me, so I decided to see if I could get some good photos of my friend’s daughter.
It was all a bit boring, until the girl, along with her friend, decided to dance, as little girls will do. As they twirled around in pure delight, I was snapping photos, hoping to get some good ones. In a crowded situation, I haven’t figured out how to get the non-competing backgrounds I like (without resorting to more Photoshop than I care to do), but I still think these photos are full of the pure joy that is little girls having fun.
