In the process of adding to my online dance photography portfolio I have been going through images from a couple years back. These were recital portraits I took for Awen Academy when it was in business. It was my first time using a backdrop with natural light. Each little ballerina student had a few minutes with me and my camera to capture them in their recital costume. Looking at these now two and a half years later, I’m understanding just how special (and adorable) these photos are.
