Rylee is a 9 year old dancer with an incredible amount of talent and enthusiasm. She is based in New Orleans, Louisiana and her dance styles are ballet, tap, freestyle, and hip-hop. The location for the shoot was the beautiful Maurepas Wildlife Trail just outside of New Orleans. She has a beautiful smile and loves to show off her moves. In these pictures, Christopher Ryan captures Rylee in action, jumping into the air with one leg extended behind her in a perfect split.

This is part of Christopher Ryan’s “Youthful Ambition” series which captures the exuberance and joy of childhood through outdoor activities and portraits. His work has been featured in exhibitions in USA and Thailand.  Images from this session have graced the walls of the historic New Orleans Athletic Club and Bayou Barbell.
