I think by now we’ve pretty well established that I’m really an Arkansas Wedding Photographer, right? I don’t do a whole lot of other types of photography, like, ever! But one of the most incredible things about being a creative person and self employed is being able to spread my wings into other amazing things like being an Arkansas ballet dancer photographer. That creative freedom is enough to make all the other (harder) parts of being self employed worth it!
For this shoot at The Brick Ballroom in Siloam Springs, Arkansas I knew I wanted to photograph a minimalist ballet setup. And by minimalist, I pretty much mean just a ballerina. Ha! Heather at the Brick Ballroom put me in contact with beautiful Anna Fendley (owner of Joy of Motion Dance Studio). Anna’s dance classes meet at The Brick Ballroom (and honestly have you EVER seen a more perfect place for a ballet?!) so it was very natural for us to be using this space. The lovely and talented Shakayla Canaday from NWA Occasions did a great job on Anna’s makeup and hair and was so wonderful to work with – I always love working with their team!
We stuck with a neutral color palette of whites and grays and it worked so perfectly in the Brick Ballroom’s beautiful white walls and wood floors. Anna brought her A-game (can you believe this girl had a baby just a few months before the shoot?!) and danced so beautifully to her classical music playlist. I’m not exaggerating in the least when I say that I actually got tears in my eyes watching Anna do what she so obviously loves; the light, the music, the graceful beauty of classical ballet…it was so moving.
I am so incredibly excited to share these images with you today. Please scroll down and enjoy these elegant, timeless images of Anna at the Brick Ballroom.
