In addition to photographing weddings and portraits, I LOVE photographing ballet! When I began my photo journey in high school I would bring my film camera to my ballet classes and shoot some “behind the scenes” images (which are still hanging in the studio TODAY!). My teacher, Lisa, was so encouraging and supportive of anything creative… I wanted to stay connected to ballet after I graduated high school so I would set up photoshoots with a few DVDA dancers and it was awesome!
When I was in college I would go to the Nutcracker dress rehearsals and try to learn as much as I could about lighting + timing. Since I am a natural light photographer, this was totally out of my comfort zone, but I am always up for a challenge! This year, I shot both Nutcracker performances for Delaware Valley Dance Academy and it was awesome!! Here are some of my favorite images — enjoy!
