It was the first time I was asked to do dance photography, so I was pretty nervous. I scoured Pinterest for ideas, I googled images, and I wracked my brain for interesting places to have the shoot. The one redeeming feature of this dance photoshoot was the fact that I knew this family well from all our prior family photo sessions, so I wasn’t afraid to tell them this was all brand new to me.
The girls were in middle school and elementary school at the time of this photoshoot. They have been in dance companies for years, and their skills blow my mind. The dance photos I collected from my google searches were super easy for them to pull off. In the beginning they waited for direction from me. But after getting comfortable they started searching the location for jumps and bends and twists and leaps….all of which were phenomenol.
Here is just a small representation of the dance photoshoot we did.
If you have any dancers in your life, contact me to discuss a dance photography session. It’s truely amazing, and you should not miss the opportunity to document what these dancers can do.
