I love creating dance composites. This one popped up in my memories recently for one I created for Natalee. I love going into the same dance studio year after year and creating these and watching the dancers grow up!

Dance portraits sessions available. For more information please contact me.

The Name of My Reindeer?

New Jersey – Lehigh Valley Family Photographer

At the end of a family portrait session with one of my favorite families who’s also a dancer, on the way out he turns to me and says, “what’s the name of the reindeer?” I replied hesitantly “while I don’t know. I don’t think he has a name. What name should I give him?” Blake thinks a moment and then says “Dancer!”

Of course, it’s Dancer! Not only because he’s always dancing around in the wind, but I photograph a lot of dancers!!! LOL

New Jersey – Lehigh Valley Dance Photographer

I love creating one of a kind collages for my clients. Sports work best but can also be done for other types of photography too.

Collages can be several different types.

We can keep it simple with just one images with custom colors

Stepka-Neena Wedding

Victoria and Michael had a beautiful wedding day. The weather in November can be tricky. The recent cold spell had everyone concerned. But everything came together for a beautiful morning.

Family and friends gathered in sunshine to share the special day

Holiday Dance Portraits: Friends Edition

Sneek peek at more dance holiday portraits. These two have been dance friends for over 11 years!

Molly and her sisters have been in front of my lens many times for many years

I’ve also had the pleasure of photographing Jordin in the past.

The best part of a friend’s session is the group poses. These two didn’t disappoint and wanted to get them right!

I’m quite pleased with the duo pose. It was a late find by my wife. I didn’t think they could pull it off with dresses, but they did it!

Ready for your friend’s dance portrait session? I have a few spots remaining before the holiday. Contact me today for more information or to schedule your session.

Family Holiday Portraits

Family portraits for the Luyben family in December 2022. Photo by DAVE DABOUR

I’ve known this family for years and I’m so glad I do! I not only had the pleasure of photographing their wedding, but their maternity, newborn and at least yearly family portraits. It’s a joy to see them and watch their family grow.

I spent quite a bit of time with Santa this weekend and he was nice enough to help me out with a few photos with them as well!

I spent a fair amount of time planning this pose and getting ready for it. Emma was a champ and nailed it. But as I’m editing it, I can’t help wondering what she’s thinking: “I’m outside on a sled in the snow…. wearing short sleeves and NO coat!!” LOL. I still love the pose,

Every once in a while, (OK maybe every time!) I come up with a wacky pose idea for them. Before I even finished telling them about it, Derek always says “I’m in!” In this one he’s grabbing his wife with a large candy cane. I smile every time I look at his facial expressions!

Ready for some holiday portraits for your family? Hurry while I still have a few open slots! Please call/email and contact me today!
