The most important thing when conducting children photoshoots is ensuring that the children are comfortable.
Photoshoots are oftentimes held in unfamiliar environments for children, which can make children nervous.
However, if the environment is light, welcoming and relaxing, children can open up and be themselves. When shooting any portrait photography, the goal is to artistically use light and shadows to show the subject’s unique personality. In this photoshoot, I was able to capture exactly that.
The portrait photography session with this young ballet dancer was one of a kind. The girl in the photos, who was only 10 years old, absolutely loved to dance. Nothing made her feel more comfortable than wearing a dance outfit and striking a pose. The ballet theme truly brought out her personality because it highlighted her greatest passion.
The photoshoot was conducted in my Arline Figaro Photography studio, which allowed me to play around with the backgrounds.
The dark background perfectly contrasted with her white dress and made her appear like the source of light that she was.
This little princess loved how her photos came out! Nothing makes me happier than when children show genuine joy over how they are portrayed during their photoshoots.
