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!

You can see more ballet photos here.  I'll try to be back and share more of these gorgeous performers images!
