If you have known me for a long time, you know that there is a dancer inside of me. I started dancing when I was 3, started competing around 8, and became a dance teacher at 15. I taught thru highschool and college as well as the first couple of years that I worked at Pfizer. I was also a founding member of Frelon Dance Company at Kalamazoo College. We started off with 26 students and now it is the largest student organization on campus – they just had their 16th annual performance. (Don’t do the math – I have been out of college for a LONG time.) I really miss choreagraphing for the Frelon shows.
I have wanted to combine my love of dance with my love of photography for awhile. This session (with a current Frelon member at K College) just made me so excited. I LOVED every minute. I wish I could do my own senior portraits over and incorporate my passion for dance…but that ship sailed a long time ago! I don’t think dance senior portraits need to be traditional and shot in a studio…downtown Kalamazoo made a fabulous backdrop for these images…and if you come back tomorrow, you can see how nature can be a fantastic backdrop as well.
Thank you to Caitlin for an awesome session that really makes my heart sing.
