Saint Paul dance photo of a young contemporary dancer leaping into the air, overlooking the Mississippi River and downtown Saint Paul, MN

 

I had an amazing time shooting these Saint Paul dance photos with the talented (and humble) Carley Jensen. Our dance photography session began at Harriet Island Park, right across the river from downtown Saint Paul, MN. We finished our evening making sunset portraits high upon the cliffs of Indian Mounds Park.

I was truly in awe of the skill level and maturity of this amazing 11 year old dancer. Carley has trained ballet and contemporary dance styles intensively since the age of 5. Carley has won a national title every year that she has competed. She currently trains at Larkin Dance Studio in Maplewood, MN. Carley is already recognized as a NUVO Breakout Artist and an INTRIGUE Apprentice, and one day hopes to make it on So You Think You Can Dance and World of Dance. She will be going to the The Dance Awards this year and the skies the limit for this hard-working, and sweet young lady.

Below is a collection of my favorite images from our fun dance photography session in Saint Paul, MN:
