I started dancing when I was two years old. With my mom as one of my many instructors, I immersed myself in the dance world. Throughout the years, I enrolled in as many different classes and styles as possible. Ballet (and pointe), tap, jazz, ballroom, and anything else I could dip my toes in. In my early teens, I became an instructor's assistant. Then, in high school, I was promoted to a solo instructor for jazz, tap, and ballet. By senior year, I was teaching the majority of classes offered at the studio.
Growing up as a dancer, I often found myself frustrated with photographers. So sick of the "lean forward and tilt your head" approach. I wanted my dance photos to show me DANCING, not just standing there in my costume. After many years of photos, my mother stepped in and started posing me herself. Eventually, we would stay and help other dancers to make sure the photographer was getting a flattering angle and that the dancers were exhibiting PROPER TECHNIQUE. They didn't know how it was supposed to look-how could they?
Now, with my dance background and photography techniques, I am inviting you to experience working with a photographer that KNOWSDANCE. If the image doesn't make you look your best, no one will ever see it.
