Hello blogging world! CCP has been very busy these last few months and I’m looking forward to getting back to the usual Client Blog Posts soon. Till then I wanted to write my thoughts about a certain topic:
Three days ago was World Ballet Day. Many friends posted their favorite photos of days past and present in tights, tutus, and pointe shoes jumping, kicking, and twirling. For many years, Ballet Day was every day in my life.
I started in ballet classes at the age of three. My older sisters had all danced and as they say, Monkey See Monkey Do. At RAFA, the Ballet School I grew up at, along with Ballet I studied Tap, Jazz, and Musical Theatre. We were encouraged to be well rounded performers, to not just be “one trick ponies.” In my teen years I took 4-5 ballet classes a week and my classical technique grew stronger. My classical training prepared me for my Musical Theatre career and gave me a leg up among other theatre hopefuls. When I started Caitlin Cannon Photography I found that my background as a classical dancer was extremely beneficial! As I photograph dancers I’m able to pose them and offer technical corrections that best flatter their body and satisfy their expectations. The setting of a photo can be perfectly composed and beautifully artistic, but if a dancer sees even the slightest of technical error within their pose, the image won’t fly. I make sure that my clients look their absolute best and guide their movement to create that picture perfect moment that dancers work years to perfect!
If you are a dancer and saying to yourself, "I don’t have any images of me dancing!” then you need a CCP Session! You deserve to have beautiful portraits that capture your passion, beauty, and strength through your love of dance.
