Who's behind the camera?
I drove my kids
to their dance class last week, and I got flashbacks of my own childhood, when my whole world revolved around ballet. It’s a thrill to watch the same passion in my kids now.
As a mom,
I’ve watched my three children change and go through fascinating phases. Without my camera, many of those would be lost. As important as a recital and those expensive (itchy) costumes are, they aren’t the only thing we want to remember each year.
Dance still makes me come alive. Taking pictures of dancers makes me forget that I didn’t pack a lunch (and if you know me, you know just how important food is to me). I love the variety and spontaneity of live dances. Just like the best dancers feel the music, I feel the dance from behind my camera.
As a way to keep things fresh
with my creative endeavors, I am constantly photographing rehearsals, classes and dances from backstage, so if your kids like to move in beautiful ways to beautiful music, I’d love to capture it beautifully. If you feel the same way, you can talk to your studio about hosting an open dance shoot with me, or contact me directly to schedule a private dance photo shoot.
