a dreamy shoot

I received the new j.crew catalog last night and fell in love with the cover. 
(how cute are the little ones in the middle?)

I've danced since I was young, but  never stuck with ballet.  I found myself loving jazz and hip hop more, but a piece of me still wishes I would have had more of an interest at a young age.  Anyway, I always find myself drawn to ballerina shoots in magazines, etc.  This being one of them.  All dancers from this shoot are from the Yakobson dance studio in Saint Petersburg, Russia, featuring local ballerinas. 
I love seeing the behind the scene shots...
a little note from j.crew tumblr“Many of the dance studios we scouted were basic and dark. When we found these windows, I knew we had to take advantage of the milky (and ever forgiving) backlight.”
lovely shot of all the dancers
such a pretty mix of beautiful fall cashmere sweaters and gorgeous tutus. 
aren't these shots dreamy?
