8th Grade Portraits | Downtown Sacramento

 

"And one day she discovered that she was fierce, and strong, and full of fire, and not even she could hold herself back because her passion burned brighter than her fears." - Mark Anthony

Where one waits with a bit of uncertainty. Somewhere between your childhood days, yet still years before your grown. Where the beauty of possibilities are endless.

Over the years this young lady's drive and passion for dance has yet to wither. Instead, with each practice, competition, and solo performed her passion continues to strengthen. Through the lens of my camera, I had the honor of capturing this moment in her life.

Midway into our lifestyle session, we switched focus from documenting her passion with dance, to grabbing a few portraits in her 8th grade graduation dress. I'm not going to lie, there might have been a tear or two swell up. Our first borns are growing up and they have now entered into the last remaining years of being children. 

This session is where an end of this chapter in her childhood will be forever documented. And a glimpse of the future that lies ahead can be seen in the photos captured below. Keep pursing your dreams, and never let the fire in your soul burn out.
