Annabelle and I met near my studio in downtown Manhattan for a dance shoot on the streets of Greenwich Village NYC. We had such a great time! We did a mix of ballet portraits, dance photos, and headshots – a classic combo for ballet photography NYC. Annabelle was full of energy and terrific ideas, her ballet shoot was a delight from start to finish.
One thing I love about ballet photography is how much each dancer’s talents and personality shape the dance shoot. I work (and live!) in downtown Manhattan, so this neighborhood is very familiar to me. Annabelle was a breath of fresh air, and brought her own sparkle to the neighborhood. Greenwich Village has never looked so good! Of course, sometimes we venture further afield in Manhattan (like this Times Square ballet photo shoot I did) but I can often be found in Greenwich Village. I love outdoor dance photography, and am so impressed with how Annabelle incorporates city elements into her dancing. Annabelle wore three different looks, I adore the different moods and color palates here.
I offer dance shoots year round, but definitely notice and uptick in shoots in the warmer months as young dancers come to NYC for summer dance intensives and want shoots in the City. All that hard work should be commemorated! Of course I also do a lot of dance shoots in anticipation of these summer intensives, as dancers need headshots and dance portraits for their applications.
Annabelle is a New Yorker, however, and just wanted some up to date dance portraits celebrating her love of dance. I hope she and her family always treasure these.
Thank you, Annabelle! That was a blast, and I am in awe of your talent and hard work. Thank you for a marvelous dance shoot!
