Dancing with Kayla

Updated: Jan 8, 2022

While we were at NRG dance nationals last year in Arizona, I had the chance to have a session with miss Kayla Diaz (@dancinkayla on IG). She is such a little firecracker and shooting with her was so much fun! Kayla loves her custom dancewear from Eleve Dancewear, Betty Harlow Dancewear, and Kandi Kouture so she was really excited to have the chance to show off her outfits. We shot this session at the Arizona Grand Hotel which was honestly a blast. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and has a variety of looks so we had no problem finding scenic backgrounds. The only thing I would have changed was the heat! Arizona in the middle of the summer is no joke 😂🔥

These water shots were particularly fun. In order to get Kayla's face covered with just the right amount of water, we had an assistant helping her float on her back who would then push her just below the water's surface. It takes a lot of concentration to keep your face calm when you're being pushed underwater but Kayla did a great job! It was an awesome way to end the session and a great way to cool off in the Arizona heat.

Thanks for reading!
