Holiday Portraits

I’ve always wanted to create some unique and fun holiday portraits for dancers. I’m usually way too crazy this time of year to do it but this year I decided to give it a go.

The result is some fantastic images were created!

I’ve been photographing Blake for years. He’s becoming a great dancer! He was also a good spirit. I had this crazy idea in my head for a pose and he went ahead with it:

I wanted to capture someone trying to put light on a tree and the next thing you know there’s more light on you than the tree! LOL

I’ve also had the pleasure of photographing Penny for several years. Not only a talented dancer but also does some modeling in NYC. Penny wanted to try a few jumps. Normally I love jumps but with lights? She managed to pull it off!

This was the first time I photographed Julia and Emily. They are sisters that both dance. They did a great job!

While I was photographing them together, I had this vision in my head for a photograph. It wasn’t dance related per say but definitely holiday related:

I LOVE this image and glad I took some time to create it!

Ready for some holiday portraits for the dancer in your life? Now is the time! Here’s a secret: it doesn’t have to be dancers. Athletes and families do just great too!

Three new composite sizes available.

The first is 10 x 30″ This composite is ideal for up to 6-10 images. It’s printed on a double thick matboard which not only gives it strength but allows it to display on its own or inside a frame. $119

Next up is the 10 x 20″ composite. This size is ideal for 5-7 images. Like the one above, you can have a name on top and year and/or dance studio or dance phrase on the bottom. $89

Last but certainly not least is the 10 x 13″ composite. This size can handle 3-4 images. $69

I’ll be more than happy to show you proof online of this before having these created – just ask!

And don’t forget to let me know the name on the top and if just the year on the bottom is OK or if you want anything else. The year on the bottom is standard.

All of these composites can be framed.
