I’ve worked with dancers in many venues – traditional portraits at the dance studio, on-location and even some simple moves in my own studio. However, one thing I’ve never done until recently, was to use my lighting to highlight the body of a dancer who has been training for many years. So once I decided that this was something I needed to do, I gave my friend Jill a call.
I met Jill four years ago when I was working with the dancers at the studio where the girls dance. Fortunately, I was blessed to really get to know her when she and her mother contacted me a year ago for senior portraits. We had a great time and Jillian and I created many beauutiful portraits as she danced at Augustana in the arches, around a fountain, and in a skybridge.
So, when I decided to embark on a new project, I called Jill, knowing that she would be up for another adventure. We spent a wonderful morning playing in the studio!

Thanks again Jillian for coming out to play. For more images of my work, check out the “Life is a Stage” gallery on my website.
