Tiny Dancers

Wow, recital season is a doozy, isn’t it? The costumes, the dress rehearsals, the waiting around…

Heidi has SO been there. (Her daughter put her through the recital wringer for 13 years.!) It made her realize that the pure grace of young dancers, both boys and girls, is often lost in the craziness. Let’s reclaim it. Sessions for dancers aged 2-16 are offered in 20 minute increments with the goal of making impactful, emotive images. There will not be an overly lit, cookie cutter backdrop in sight. Sessions are for individual children. Siblings will not be photographed together but may be booked in back-to-back sessions.

Your session will result in 15-20 finished images in an online gallery. You may download three of these images of your choice as part of your session package. If you wish to additionally purchase the full set of images you may do so through your online gallery for an additional $250.
