Elements Dance Center Portraits – Fort Collins, Colorado Dance Photographer

It was an honor and a joy to shoot Elements Dance Center’s individual and group portraits this weekend. I am still working my way through images, but wanted to go ahead and share some. If you need dance, sports, school, head shots, wedding, high school senior, family, maternity, or most any other kind of photography – including on-location, in my studio, in natural light, or with artificial light, I can help you out. Please contact me with your needs and I will be happy to meet for coffee or work up terms or a quote for the work. As always, thank you for your interest in Roots and Twigs Photography!

2014.07.15 M’s High School Senior Mini Session

Here’s another High School Senior Mini Session I shot in Western NC in July. This Senior is involved in color guard and band, playing clarinet. I really loved this old, abandoned farm as a location.

2014.07.15 MB’s High School Senior Mini Session

As many of you know, I mostly took the summer off and took a looong (really long!) trip with my kids. I spent almost all of the time in Western North Carolina, in and around Asheville. Since I had no other adult help and it rained a lot, I wasn’t able to do much shooting, but I am going to share a few photos in the coming days. First up: a mini session for a new high school senior! MB’s mom and I have been friends for 25 years, since our days in high school together. Yes, TWENTY-FIVE years. My friend has a high school senior and I have a toddler!!! Anyway… This session was actually in conjunction with one for MB’s best friend, and since we got a late start, we ran well past sunset. That made light a bit challenging, but it also gave us some nice color in the sky on a few shots. MB knew about an abandoned farm property near her home. We parked our cars on the dirt road closest to dilapidated buildings and tromped through the field, with grass and weeds as tall as us. Thankfully, we found no snakes! The longer we were there, the more interesting spots we found to shoot.  All total, we shot for just over an hour and came away very satisfied. I am sharing client selections here, but I may add a few of my favorites later, too. MB is enthusiastic about band and plays both the clarinet and bassoon, both featured in her session.

2014.04.17 Asheville, NC High School Senior Mini Session

I recently traveled to fabulous Asheville, NC for a family session, but I needed child care. The clients brought this lovely young lady and her mother along to help me out. In exchange for child care while I shot the other session, I provided her with a quick high school senior session of her own. My kids LOVED her and her mom, and I know why. They were both wonderful to work with and we got some lovely shots in the short time we had to work. The light was nice, her smile was bright, and her attitude was perfect. I think it was a win all around. Thank you so much, L and S. And, of course, huge thanks to the B family for connecting us!!!

Please send more fabulous  seniors and prom-goers my way! So without further ado… Here is the lovely Miss L!

April is Busy!

April is heavily booked and personal travel has made things just a bit busier. I’ve uploaded a number of proofs from recent sessions on Facebook, but I’m also posting many here in a quick slideshow until I get more time for final edits and proper posts. Hope you enjoy and please get in touch to schedule your own session!

Catching Up and Recent Snapshots

Happy New Year! I haven’t posted here in a while, so I thought I would offer a quick update about what’s going on with the business recently. One of my December family sessions got rained out, and my other session isn’t ready to post here. I have a family session scheduled for next weekend, and am in early talks with a couple about doing their upcoming wedding! In the meantime, I want to share some quick snapshots of friends, taken on December 29, 2013. They’re good sports and good people, so hopefully they won’t mind too much.

2013.12.01 Family Mini Session

What a great way to welcome December! I really enjoyed working with these new clients, including Kiki, their wonderful family dog of nine years. The family came to me and I walked to the session! We enjoyed exploring various little pockets of the neighborhood, which generated a number of different looks for the session.

Enjoy the photos and remember, as always, click on the photo for a larger view.
