Dance Portraits / Wayensboro Ministry Center PA

The dance ministry at Otterbein Church and Ministry Center exists to teach children and youth how to use the gift of dance to praise and worship their creator. I had the privilege to photograph several of the Dancers over the weekend and would love to show you how special this ministry is.

I'm so pleased that the model call I did in my Smithsburg, Md. portrait studio for my own creative urge was recognized by The Art Of Child Photography!

So, A few weeks back I put out a model call for a young girl that could wear a size 4/5. I had purchased these adorable and vintage inspired dresses one green and one grey that I wanted to photograph. The style I wanted to depict was classic, vintage, painterly and timeless. 

I started with my model at a near by orchard,  Lewis Orchard

I drive by this field often and had noticed the gorgeous morning glories that were spread through the fields. So we had to plan for a morning session to be sure to capture these beautiful flowers in action.

After our fun at the orchard we went back to my studio to photograph in the grey dress. I just love the way these turned out!

As I mentioned I had purchased the dress, I then styled her hair. I wanted to capture a simple gaze in these images. So often children are used to the camera and big smiles which is great sometimes. However to depict a more classic art look I chose the more silently engaging and captivating looks.
