Jonestown Dance Portraits

It is that time of year again.  Classes of ballerinas and dancers show up at our studio all around the yard twirling, smiling, and jumping for photos…It really is magical.   We love it <3

If you are a dancer’s parent…We have a few tips to make things go smoothly!

*Have your form/payment ready to go.

*Have your dancer ready to go…decide before hand if you want your child’s dance shoes on or you would rather they go barefoot.  Have slide on shoes so they can easily get into dance shoes.

*Try to be on time…We will try to start with group photo so that once your child’s individual photos are taken…you can go.   We will take photos in order of turning in your order form to the table.

*You are welcome to bring a blanket, chair, etc to relax while you wait for your child’s turn.  We will have coloring books, paper, and a prize box for when they are done.

*If you have any questions…Please email us at:

We have some fun new props and a new poster for 2015!   White Shabby Chic frames, a mini piano, a modern black chair, and the princess chair:)

Here are some samples and also some random portraits from last years class!

Gossamer Blue December Daily Album!

Hello Everyone! I’m here to share some pages and tips from my December daily Album with you! Let me tell you.. this album is awesome! I LOVE every piece in it! I love the stylish yellow striping of the album.. the mix of colorful, neutral and muted papers and journaling cards, the gold doilies and washi tape ( LOVE GOLD!) and the variety of embellishments and cool stamp set!

I am a photographer, so I already had some base photos because I already did my children’s photos to use as samples for my mini sessions.. so you will see a few photos stuck in there as well!

” I am first and foremost me, but right after that, I am a mother. The best thing that I can ever be, is me.

But the best gift that I will ever have, is being a mother.” ~ C Joybell

“The mother memories that are closest to my heart are the small gentle ones that I have carried over from the days of my childhood. They are not profound, but they have stayed with me through life, and when I am very old, they will still be near . . . Memories of mother drying my tears, reading aloud, cutting cookies and singing as she did, listening to prayers I said as I knelt with my forehead pressed against her knee, tucking me in bed and turning down the light” ~Margaret Sanger

“This is what we do, my mother’s life said. We find ourselves in the sacrifices we make.”  ~C McGovern

” When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”

~Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty
