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!
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
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!
