As a dancer, others dancers are perhaps my all-time favorite subject to photograph (aside from kids, that is). Maybe it’s that I know what a step/position/move is supposed to look like. Maybe it’s just the joy I see on the face of other dancers as I photograph them doing what they love as much as I do. I don’t know, but I do know that I really look forward to those sessions.
While visiting some friends in Northern Utah their amazingly talented daughter asked me if I would be willing to do “some dance pictures” for her after we did their family session. I think I was almost more excited than her! This young lady is incredibly dedicated, talented and I see her going pretty far in the dance world. The sky’s the limit for her. And for those of you wondering… she’s only nine years old.
Recently I had the opportunity to display and sell my wares and talents at the Belly Swap Sale and Hafla. Every year Shifting Sands hosts a belly swap where vendors and members can bring in their wares, their costumes they no longer use, jewelry and many other items having to do with belly dancing and not having to do with it. The amazing ladies in my troupe, Seraphina Fire, are not only talented in their dancing, but we’re all pretty crafty as well.
Seraphine Fire purchased vendor space, and set up shop.
My little contribution
Some of my owls
The rest of the girls’ stuff… and my computer, lol.
It wouldn’t be Seraphina Fire if there weren’t a few… shenanigans.
And this year, I actually left with more money than I spent… though not much, lol.
