South Lyon Portrait Photographer | Ballet, Dance and Other Things

I have had the privilege of getting to work with Emma on a couple of projects this summer.  She is one {1} of nine {9} contestants for the 2013 Miss Farmington Pageant.  It was through my work with the pageant, that Emma came to me for a more personal shoot.  Not only is she competing for the crown and title of Miss Farmington, Emma is also highly involved in competitive dance.    

I have to say, this was one of my favorite shoots to date.  I loved capturing her jumps, croisé derrière, and other varying dance poses.  Emma truly makes dance look effortless when it is, in fact, the exact opposite.

Here is a sampling of some of the many images I captured of Emma - some dance and some portrait.  Be sure to let Emma know what you think of her portraits in the comment section below.

South Lyon Portrait Photographer | 2013 Miss Farmington Pageant

Monday, I got to hang with the fabulous Miss Farmington 2013 Pageant contestants and take their group shots for this years program.  This year, nine {9} contestants will be competing for the crown at the Farmington Civic Theater on Wednesday, July 17th.  With this many lovely and talented girls, it's sure to be a difficult decision for the judges.

After working with the girls, I had a one-on-one shoot with the Miss Farmington 2012 reigning queen, Elena Pavlicas.  Elena will be featured on the cover of this year's pageant program and this session was all about creating that perfect cover image.  Elena has definitely clocked a lot of hours in front of a camera, because she made our shoot effortless.  

Here are a few of the images I took from both sessions.  Be sure to show your support for these girls in the comment section below!

South Lyon Children's Photographer | J & L

I got to work with two of the cutest kiddos last week.  This brother and sister duo were not camera shy and occasionally hammed it up!  I love capturing kids at this stage.  They are just so stinking adorable and fun to be with - J & L were no exception.  These two had me smiling the whole time (shouldn't it be the other way around?).  I look forward to capturing their many precious stages of life.
