I met Anijae when his mum approached me to take updated images for his agency. Anijae’s mum had been introduced to my work through a shoot I did of professional dancers, which she saw on my website.
The second he stepped out of the car I started shooting. Anijae’s look, energy and presence was so captivating! He was fully present and completely engaged with me and the lens instantly, what an inspiration! We didn’t even make it up to the studio for prep and grooming until our second look!
Anijae enjoys ballet dancing and has been practising for the past three years. The 11-year-old loves playing sport with baseball, basketball, and football being his favourites. This young man loves to travel and his most recent travels brought him to Las Vegas, and before that, Dubai. The next trip he hopes to go on is a visit to Barcelona!
