Hello! I'm Charity, a photographer, mama, and believer based in the western burbs of Chicago.

Dancers have this certain grace and strength about them that is compelling and inspiring. When you spend your entire life in a studio, learning discipline and balance and poise, it’s no wonder that those qualities transfer into your personal life.

I could see those same kinds of attributes in Treasure, as we explored some beautiful hills near Canyon Lake, CA, posing her pretty face against the setting sun.


Can you believe that’s her real name? How beautiful is that!
The name definitely goes with her stunning natural beauty and fun, sweet spirit. She is a phenomenal dancer, having been doing it since she was a toddler. Between school, classes, competitions, and even working at the studio, she’s one busy teen and I certainly admire her commitment.

And I’m grateful that she agreed to my crazy ideas – like hiking up a giant, steep hill that was practically like climbing a ladder, just to chase the setting sun! Next time I’ll be prepared with better shoes. 😉

For real though: Treasure, I’m so glad we crossed paths, and that you won my recent Instagram giveaway. You are a sweet and talented young girl, and I know you’re going to do great things! Hard work pays off, and I can tell that your dedication and commitment is going to get you places. Keep it up, and keep smiling that beautiful smile!
