I was once a ballerina...

A seven year old tomboy in a tutu.
I absolutely love this photograph it’s so beautiful, whimsical, nostalgic and dreamy.
It reminds me of watching the senior girls dancing away in their pointes, pink leotards and beautiful tutus. They were graceful and mesmerising beings. I was the not so graceful tot in awe. This photograph is dedicated to that senior class; they will forever be those stunning ballerinas at the 3pm class.


I hope you enjoy this beautiful photograph. Have a great weekend.
Her dress is stunning in the last photograph!
