Little Dancers, May 19-20, 2012

This has been the biggest photoshoot I ever did, to date.  Never in my wildest dreams would I be approached to take photos of almost 200 kids in one single weekend.  I could not just pass up the opportunity to do something different.

I was nervous, to be honest, about the photoshoot.  Each dancers could only have a few minutes each as it was the day of rehearsal, also.  It went more smoothly than I thought it would.  The kids were really adorable, ranging from ages 3 to 13.  Some were really shy and some were big time camera hams.

It truly was a great experience and I'm glad to have undergone it.

As for editing, that was quite a challenge.  Finding the time to get them completed was daunting as I have a full-time job as a graphic designer for a restaurant company, also.
I finally completed the photos a little later than anticipated.  Because of all this, I learned a lot about how to manage time more effectively.

Again, an eye-opening experience that I'm grateful to have had.

A HUGE thanks to my husband, Charles, our friend Sarah B. and my mother-in-law, Fay, for their tremendous assistance in the photoshoot.  I wouldn't have made it out alive without them!

And lastly, if it weren't for Ms. Howard-Jett, I wouldn't have had this amazing opportunity.  Thank you so much for enlisting me - I truly appreciate it! 

Here are the photos - Enjoy! - KCD
