Mia, Eva and Kya by Rebecca Massimino

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________tumblr_okkx4rd1871w0j00fo1_1280

Photographer Rebecca (Townsend) Massimino is an English ex-nurse, relocated to Florida, and married with three daughters and a newborn son – two of the daughters seeming to be obsessed with dance. The portrait above is just on her Instagram feed –  a beautifully successful attempt to get a dance-themed shot away from stretches, splits and lace-tying…

The feed takes you right from eldest-daughter Mia’s first dance lesson to current success and product promotion by all three girls – even Eva the non-dancer. (The one in the photo is youngest-daughter Kya, being held by dancer Carly Banister.)

…..and obviously since she’s a commercial photographer, some shots of other models or clients have slipped in (for example the Facebook image link girl).

The Instagram vids by Kya and Mia below are fun – it always gives a better idea of a girl’s character, age and maturity if you see what they’re like in “real” life (particularly Kya’s first, when she hides under a cushion, overtaken with embarrassment….). Rebecca has a fondness for editing her portraits that sometimes almost smooths off the surface itself, as well as the roughness…and in this context have a particular look at Eva’s feed – it shows a quieter child than her sisters, trying out golf as an alternative to dance, and with a palpable love for her parents and friends. A real sweetie…

  1. Hi! Thanks for the encouragement…..three cute sisters and a photographer mother is certainly a good combination…..Thinking of your blog, I remember using the Avicii video with Laneya Grace to add something different to a post about her….but I’m sure that vid isn’t exactly news to you: everybody who sees it says how small she looked – forgetting that she is only about ten or eleven even now….
