Aspiring singer Cheyenne Elliott has yet to release her first album, but she's already showing off her Grammy: legendary pop star Dionne Warwick.

Miami celebrity photographer David Vance has long been associated with Warwick. In 2012, he photographed her for the album, Now.

Vance on Friday photographed Elliott, who is readying her first album.

"I've been doing photos of Dionne since 1982 and now her granddaughter has recorded her first CD," Vance says.

Vance shares with us an outtake from the photo session, a portrait of Grammy and granddaughter.

Vance, who's also famous for photographing beautiful men, describes Friday's Miami session as "a great shoot."

"Cheyenne is one stunning and charming 19 year old. Very sweet," he says. "We were were having such a good time before I knew it it was after 6 pm. It's always great to see Dionne, after 30 years, when she's here it's like a relative is visiting."

From Elliott's Facebook page:

Cheyenne Elliott was born into a world of song. Hailing from a family of musical royalty, which includes her grandmother - five-time Grammy Award winner Dionne Warwick, cousin - Whitney Houston, aunts - Dee Dee Warwick & Cissy Houston and uncle - Damon Elliott (hit music producer), it comes without question that Cheyenne would have an innate vocal talent herself. To bring it all full circle, her father - David Elliott - is an accomplished vocalist and songwriter, who is best known for penning Luther Vandross’ Grammy Award winning hit, “Here and Now.”
