Tips for a successful dance portrait day:
Come camera ready with hair / makeup already done, fingernails clean and free of polish (make sure there’s no lingering rub-on tattoos). Remember, this is your shoot, for your memories. Unless the owner/teacher specifies a certain look for the group shot, you can wear your hair/makeup how you want.
Check in and Sign up at receptionist desk as soon as you get there. We shoot first come first serve.
Be sure to sign up with enough time in between for costume changes
We want everyone included in the group shots. There is not charge to participate in the group shots. Although we take the group shots for the owners of the dance studio, you will have the opportunity to purchase these photos.
Parents allowed in room for individual portraits, but not for group shots. please no entourages.
