What can I do to prepare?
You should give a lot of thought to how you want to be photographed and what you want those images to communicate about you. Portfolio sessions are an opportunity for us to work together to achieve compelling images of you in your very best poses, please arrive with some clear ideas of which poses work the best for you. You need to first know your strong suit as a dancer. Are you better at lots of jumps and high kicks, or are beautiful lines your thing?
Are there any timing requirements or best times to schedule dance photos?
I love to do dance photos all year round, but here are a few things to keep in mind: If you have a deadline on when the photo is due, you have to keep that in mind. We have a two week turn around on photos (subject to change). Studio photo shoots can be done any time of day. The 2 hours before sunset is the best time for outdoor photo shoots.
What should I bring / wear for dance pictures??
I encourage you to take some time to think about which clothing will be most flattering to your particular shape and proportions, which colors work best with your skin tones and hair coloring, and what makes you feel most comfortable and confident. Should the mood of the photos be more classic or contemporary? Are you wearing tights or jeans? A leotard or a dress? Heels, pointe shoes or bare feet? No matter what clothes you’re wearing, make sure they don’t restrict your movement. Your photos are meant to represent the very best of what you can do physically. It’s better to bring too much than too little. You will need to bring all your wardrobe, and it all depends on what style of dance you would like to showcase. Leotards, Crops, Half tutu’s, Pointe shoes. We supply the fabric for our stunning fabric signature photographs.
What Products do you offer and can I just have the digital images on a disc?
We offer wall art, albums, keepsake folio boxes with prints inside, and digital images on a USB drive. I believe in printing your photos so I sell prints but I offer both prints and digital images. We have packages that include prints and digital images together or you can buy prints or digital images al a carte.
