Fine Art Dance Photography

What is a Dance Session?

Dance sessions are fun, energetic and a personalized experience. Whether they're to build a portfolio, prepare for a competition or just for the fun of it, there's nothing more inspiring than a dancer who's dedicated years to their craft and I'm passionate about helping you create a collection of
images that you will cherish for a lifetime.

While I am based out of Pickens, SC, dance sessions can take place on location almost anywhere in the upstate of South Carolina. This includes the following communities and their surrounding areas:  Pickens, Seneca, Walhalla, Westminster, Greenville, Travelers Rest, Easley, Salem, and Liberty. I recently relocated from Myrtle Beach, SC so many of the images you see in my portfolio are at the beach. I am excited to join the upstate community and look forward to getting to some phenomenal shots in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains!  Dance photography sessions include unlimited outfits changes, action shots, still shots and head shots.
