Back in December we had the privilage of shooting the Christmas Show for Arabesque Academy of Dancing. We really love doing these recitals. I get to go behind the curtain. I love the kids’ nervousness back stage. I love watching all their hard work come together, and their faces as they come off. They all whisper encouragement to the other kids that are getting ready to go on.
Every year Amy puts on a better show than the one before it, and this was no exception. This year, the show had a new addition; kids from the new acting class. This added a whole new dimension to the show.
I can’t wait for the spring show to see what Amy is cooking up next!
Next up on our mask parade is Carleen, Brittany and Kaity. These three together in a photo, can go one of two ways, it can be complete chaos, or we can get some awesome images. They really did a great job posing. We pulled out my husband’s Jeep. I’ve been wanting to use this for a while as a prop, but haven’t had the right idea in my head to use it.
So we made the girls climb up there to do some shots. We did all these as it was parked in my front yard, so we had the rubberneckers and the people slowing down as they drove by to see what was going on. We even had a few beep at us as they were modeling, which the girls found hysterical.
After the Jeep, we dragged them over to the driveway. It was overcast that day, but the rain just wouldn’t come. So, we made our own. They brought their rain boots, we gave them some umbrellas, and turned on the hose!
These girls really rocked their session! We had a blast shooting them. We even entered the image of the three of them standing with the umbrellas into a contest at the GDS fair and won first place.
