Behind the Seams: Danskin Photoshoot with my NIECE!

June 8, 2012
This is a special Behind the Seams™ with me. A month ago I got to go Behind the Seams™ with the amazing Danskin team who cast my 4 year old niece Samantha Josie as their little ballerina for their lifestyle shoot (Dj Kingsley has a great eye!). Check out these amazing professional photos below and on their home page here and if you are looking for these amazing Tutu's(wish they came in my size) for your daughter, niece or for a special gift they are available here on Danskin site. See the captions below each picture to feel what I felt during this exciting moment for my niece aka dj mini model.

DJ MC styling Sam and prepping her hair and make up. My sister and I were in shock to see little Samantha Josie sit so still. She was a true professional. We were in awe. Seriously I was that stage mom back stage so happy for my little niece.
DJ MC not only styled Sam's looks but also taught her how to do ballet moves. Sam has never taken any ballet classes and DJ MC was a dancer in high school and college so was an incredible first teacher for Sam. Thank you!  (p.s because of you she is signing up for her first dance classes this summer and will be rocking these tutus!)
DJ Lauren created this beautiful back drop and styled this shot. We were all in SHOCK when Sam posed for this shot. She was literally a natural. This was Sam's first shoot and she nailed it. Thanks to DJ Lauren and DJ MC and photographer Malcolm for making Sam feel so comfortable. 
This was Sam's last shot of the shoot. Gold Sparkles=Heaven for a 4 year old. 

More photos to come all summer on!

How cute is my little niece? Obsessed!
