Dance Photography - Passion Project | Baton Rouge Family Photographer
So I've been wanting to share this with you for a while, and finally getting to it.
For those of you who don't know me personally, I'm a bunhead. Big, no HUGE, bunhead. What's that? Well, you see, I danced for many years. Into my college days and had dreams of making it my career. When I was in high school and college, I lived in the ballet studio.
Well, I wasn't able to continue dancing past the age of 19. Once I stopped, I always wanted to find a way to incorporate the art for into my life. I still love to attend performances, and even on occasion attend a ballet class. The dance studio is my happy place where I can really let everything go and enjoy myself.
Lucky for me, I've been able to work a bit with my old ballet company. When the stars align, I get back to my hometown and photograph their performances. These are a few highlights from their last season.
Om my goodness, such talent!!! I'm always amazed when I go through the thousands of images I get during their performances. It also brings back such fond memories.
I also spent a day with them this summer taking some pictures for their season marketing materials. It was truly a blast. Exhausting too being super pregnant at the time.
If you can get to a performance, it is a great opportunity to see some wonderful dancing. You will also be supporting a local non-profit, which is a bonus. Victoria Ballet Theatre's website can be found HERE. Check it out!
Don't live in Victoria, check out your local area and see what they have. I know in Baton Rouge we have a similar company that has several performances and events you can attend.
Do you have a passion project? Something you just love to do, and it makes your heart happy? Tell me about it below!
I have tons more to share, but for now, I'm leaving you with these. I'll try to be back and share more of these gorgeous performers images!
