Yesterday I photographed Joy in Austin. She’s a ballerina, and one of 9 kids in an incredible family. I photographed her brother, Sam, a few months ago.

Joy is getting ready to head to Russia to continue pursuing ballet. It’s remarkable to be so ambitious that you’ll pack up and leave the country while still in your teens. Obviously, she has a lot of determination to accomplish great things, and I’m so looking forward to hearing how she progresses!

Yesterday was a great opportunity to get some images of her before she leaves the country, and we got some great ones.
