Intensives at ADC {Miami Dance Photographer}

Posted: Thursday, August 27, 2015

AWESTRUCK: adjective 1. overcome or filled with awe.

The word I would choose to sum up how I felt after spending an afternoon at Artistic Dance Center in Miami, FL.

I had planned on just sitting in on 1-2 classes that day, but ended up staying there all afternoon. The level of commitment and drive in all the girls attending the intensive classes there was just amazing. They were of all different ages and levels, but they shared one common thing…the complete love of dance!

I learned a lot that day, and I am hoping to use those tools in my upcoming dance sessions.
I want to thank everyone at ADC for being so wonderful to me, and I can’t wait to photograph there again!

Expecting U {Cooper City Maternity Photographer}

Posted: Tuesday, August 11, 2015

Was it wrong I asked this gorgeous Mommy To Be to stay pregnant forever? She was just so amazing to photograph! And she was beyond patient with me, and understanding, and sweet, and Daddy To Be is a pretty cool guy too! They are litterly so excited for their lil one to come, it can’t help but radiate through their photos. And they both were such troopers…popping into the Bamboo Garden as wedding guests started to arrive, wadding through banana spider infested woods, and even shooting late into the night. They are exceptional human beings…and going to be even more incredible parents!

Class is in Session {Weston Dance Photographer}

Posted: Monday, August 10, 2015

When I get to photograph dancers I get the fun part. The artistic beautiful roll of capturing all their hard work into one priceless photo. But I know all their technique and talent came from hours upon hours of training and discipline! So this summer I reached out to a few studios and choreographers to see if I could sit in on the classroom/studio where all the real magic and hard work happens. And to say it mildly…I was blown away!

These girls, on a beautiful summer night, while my kids are home eating popcorn and watching their 100th movie on their vacation…CHOOSE to come to the studio to work hard, to sweat, to push their limits, to learn new and innovative choreography, all because they truly LOVE to dance. I watched and listened while I was able to document the passion that is shared in this room! I watched while their teacher, Liana Marie Alvarez, pushed and expected so much from them, because she too, LOVES to dance and LOVES these girls she gets to teach. It is a powerful thing to watch…an amazing thing to witness. And I know for a fact it made me a better dance photographer!

Thank you to Liana and all the girls at Performance Edge for allowing me to see just a morsel of all you do everyday for the love of dance!
