Dance Portraits for Leah

New Jersey – Lehigh Valley Dance Photography

I was fortunate to be able to create some dance portraits for Leah over a couple of days in various locations.

I saw the cat walking towards us as Leah was running for her jump. I said a small prayer and was rewarded with the photo above, on the right!

We were able to create a few group dance portraits as well. Morgan is on the left.

They worked on the timing of this photo for several minutes, but this was the first one captured and my favorite!

The next day we were inside a studio. If it looks like we’re in a back alley, that’s the look we were going for.

We finished with one of favorites from her session. The flowing fabric on a white background gives the portrait energy and grace.

Leah is a talented dance and a pleasure to work with. I look forward to more dance portraits in the future!

Dance Portraits for Keira

New Jersey – Lehigh Valley Dance Photographer

I met Keira for the first time in almost complete darkness. I know that sounds strange but when you agree to a sunrise photo session, that’s what happens.

Keira was a natural to work with and extremely comfortable in front of the camera

Once the sun got to work, we transitioned to some Chicago background dance portraits:

Besides the sunrise silhouette, this is one of my favorites from the session!

Dance Portraits for Katie

New Jersey Dance Photographer

With some dancers, you just know the first moment you see them strike a pose. Katie is one of those dancers.

We did a sunrise photo shoot with her in Chicago. Her style and grace are first class!

After the sun came up, we used the skyline of Chicago as a backdrop for some more dance portraits.

You can just feel the glow of the sun on her skin as she dances on the shoreline.

I wish I had a chance to create more of these with the reflection of the glass.

Dance Portraits for Alexa

New Jersey – Lehigh Valley PA Dance Photography

I had the wonderful opportunity to create some amazing dance portraits for Alexa in Chicago. We both had to get up early to create these but it was worth it!

We were also able to walk around the city and capture some images in other areas. Here’s an example of one of them:

Dance Portraits for Claire

Claire is a wonderful young dancer that takes direction well and makes it her own

I particularly enjoyed this pose with Morgan who you will see more of soon!

Dance Portraits for Larkin

Dance Portrait Photography

I only had a brief time to create some dance portraits for Larkin but it was worth it. I had an image in my mind of her standing near a window and she did wonderful!

Her friendly demeaner and striking blue eye resulted in working with her being a pleasure

Dancers in Unusual Locations

Dance Photography

I started a personal project several years titled “photographing dancers in unusual locations.”

Dance portraits for Rebecca and Nata in Chicago Summer 2021

We’re all familiar with dance portraits in a studio or stage. There’s something about dance portraits where you don’t expect them

A busy street bridge in downtown Chicago certainly qualifies. The dancers were never in harms way…

Or how about an early morning with the Chicago skyline as your backdrop…

Speaking of mornings, how about sunrise before the sun rises?

And them once the sun rises, let’s have a little fun with it 🙂

Dance Portraits for Nata

Dance portraits for Nata in Chicago Summer 2021

Nata is another example of a talented dancer that is very comfortable in front of a camera

I really wish I had more time with her for creating great dance portraits

Nata is also exploring modeling.

A fearless dancer making a location her own. Above seen on top of a bridge in downtown Chicago
