Ballerinas and a Barber Shop {Fort Lauderdale Dance Photographer}

Posted: Friday, September 16, 2016

I first got to photograph these beauties while on stage during The Nutcracker at Astrid Audet Academy of Ballet. From their talent to their poise, they were magical up there. I also knew they were Seniors and had a close friendship from dancing together for years. I thought it would be fun to take them out of the studio and get some creative shots of them venturing around downtown Wilton Manors, including a nightclub and a funky barber shop. These girls are the real deal. They are extremely smart, really funny, completely driven and just a blast to be around. They have their whole life ahead of them, and they have fantastic heads on their shoulders. I loved being able to document this time of their lives together for them to look back on as they venture onto whatever they set their minds on accomplishing. I wish them nothing but wonderfulness in their futures, and I can’t wait to see how far they go in life!

Miss K, Clay’s House and Me {Fort Lauderdale Dance Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, September 14, 2016

I first saw this amazing dancer at summer intensives while I was shooting at Artistic Dance Center. She stood out immediately. Not only the beyond adorable freckles, but her commitment and discipline really made an immediate impression on me. I HAD to work with her! I met with her and her Mom over coffee and they were ALL in! I had a fun location in mind, the driveway of a close friend and fellow photog, Clay Wieland. We planned for a great day of several costume changes and exploration of the neighborhood. It was really important for me during the session to show how fun and creative showcasing costumes in a different way could be! Miss K was fearless and unstoppable. We really had such a great time, lots of laughs, lots of fun, and some unforgettable images to always remember this day by!

Two Girls from Canada {Hollywood Dance Photographer}

Posted: Wednesday, September 14, 2016

When I got the email, I had NO idea what to expect from these two lovlies. All I knew was that they were in town for vacation and had only one day available for a dance photo shoot before they headed back home to Canada.
We met the day before and ironed out the details of the session, which was going to be the very next day. The girls were quiet and humble, I really had no idea of the level of their talents. But when they showed up to their shoot…WOW, they were ready to WERK. During the ENTIRE session I was blown away at their artistry and unbelievable abilities. They were fun, professional and limitless. We had such a GREAT time, even getting to meet the actual artist of one of the most amazing murals in downtown Hollywood, Tatiana Suarez, who was wonderful enough to take a quick shot with the girls. I enjoyed every minute of this shoot, and we kept going litterly till the sun went down. I since, have really loved being able to watch from afar (thank you Instagram) as they grow and give it their all at competitions and intensives throughout the year. I know they will only do fantastic things in the future, and I really hope they come my way again. Go get em girls!
