Dance Portraits for Morgan

New Jersey – Lehigh Valley Dance Photography

Morgan is a talented dancer that’s wonderfully comfortable in front of a camera for good reason – her mom is also a photographer.

So, you may be asking why am I creating some dance portraits for her? Lots of people (myself included) sometimes find doing things like this for your *own* family challenging at times 🙂

We were also able to create a few group portraits. I love seeing how the dancers work together when creating these portraits!

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:

Last year I was unable to create recital dance portraits for Showbiz Kidz Dance Studio. A few of the dancers contacted me and came to my studio to capture some dance portraits so the year wouldn’t be forgotten.

I was glad Michaela and her Mom reached out to me to capture these images.

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!

At first she came out with the adorable costume so I asked her to get into character and this is what she did!

After that, she turned on the cuteness all the way!
