The Advantages of a Dad Photographer

As some of you know, my husband, Matt, is a mechanical engineer by day and an occasional free-lance dance photographer on the weekends.  Well, one of our youngest daughter's perks is her "payment" for helping Matt out at these photo shoots.   She helps Matt quite a bit setting up the backgrounds and the lights, being a general "go-fer," and helping to suggest poses.  So when we know the person who has "booked Matt's services," so to speak, her bonus is getting a few photos of herself when the other person is changing or getting ready.

Here are a few we squeezed in at Matt's most recent shoot.



 


She's doing quite well.  But I'm not a proud parent!  ;-)

Heaps of Hugs,

  7. wow, beautiful photos of a very pretty young girl and so graceful too x x I think my little Oliver who's five could do with some of those steps, he's taking dance lessons now and I wouldn't say he's very graceful at all hehehe x x x

  8. Oh, but I bet little Oliver is as sweet as can be!! I just love watching the littlest dancers. They may not always have the movements correct, but they sure look cute doing it!

  10. Thanks, Michele! And perhaps you will see her dance one day--she has aspirations of dancing with a ballet company in a few years! And, as crazy as it may sound, her instructors say she can do it.
