Crying Ballerina Friends 5480
When shooting for studios, often one of the dancers outfits won't match in some way or another. This darling dancer was so upset her tights didn't match the others she just couldn't bring herself to smile, no matter what her mother said or did. When her mother finally decided to place her on the bench and attempt a shot, she protested by leaving her arms dangling there. I loved the reactions of all the other girls and shot this pic to capture their faces as they responded to the coaxing by their moms. Some are tense, some are bored, others gleefully smiling no matter what! View a larger version to see more of their facial expressions.
