An Open Letter To Pediatric E.R. Nurses- Puyallup, Washington Family Photographer

My baby is a ballerina.  Okay I get it, she is not a baby anymore.  In my eyes she is. She has been so excited to be in ballet, we found this amazing class at the local rec. center and she is making new friends fast.  We have had some challenges keeping still and not wiggling as she now has immediate access to a full length mirror.It has been beautiful to watch a little ballerina in the making.  Dance with your heart, your feet will follow.
