Francesca | St. Louis Child Photographer

June 23rd, 2012

I love this shot of Francesca because she was just having so much fun. It was a blast to watch her go through her dance routines to pick my favorite poses for her dance shots. Francesca is a dancer at Charmette Academy of Dance and obviously loves to dance!

These images will be even more precious someday because they include a special childhood memory, her favorite teddy bear.

I even got to try out my new chalk board background for the first time – fun!!!

Thanks Francesca for being such a joy to work with!

Inertia, The School of Dance | Dance Photographer

June 22nd, 2012

I always love to work with dancers and the group from Inertia, The School of Dance was awesome! Our photo shoot in Old Town St. Charles was a huge success despite the problems with parking and a few raindrops here and there. Here are a few of my favorite images from the day.

Thank you to the helpful dad who got the girls up and down safely – I love this shot!!!

It was actually raining when we photographed this group. I was so impressed how patient everyone was waiting under umbrellas. The little ones even held umbrellas over my head to keep my camera drop – what a bunch of cuties!

Fortunately, the rain was not bad and did not last long. With the cooperation of wonderful parents, teachers and dancers we finished on time and just minutes before a huge thunderstorm passed through.

 Thanks Inertia for such an enjoyable photo shoot and great day!

Nv Dance Force | St. Charles Dance Photographer

June 29th, 2011

I always love working with the dancers at Nv Dance Force! Last year we sweltered in the heat at Forest Park, and this year we started out in the cold rain in Old Town St. Charles. But, no matter the weather, the dancers are troupers! We finished with some groups outside around the studio, set up in doors for a few days, and finally got some great stage shots at the Showcase on June 18. Here are a few of my favorites.

Center Stage Dance Academy| St. Peters Dance Photographer

June 16th, 2011

After so many years of practically living in the dance studio, I always enjoy any opportunity I get to hang out in a dance studio. I recently got the chance to spend some time at Center Stage Academy of Dance to photograph their dancers. The students, parents, and teachers were awesome and the photo shoots stayed right on schedule! Here are a few of my personal favorites from the week (It was so hard to choose!). An email with details on accessing the galleries will go to all parents by Saturday, June 18. Thanks for a great week!

Did I mention Edward & Jacob were there?

Cool tap costumes that lit up! We did these shots in the dark – a new experience!

Here’s a sample of a custom designed collage. Please contact me directly cathy@cathyhartmanphotography.com for details.

Dancers Scott & Melissa

June 7th, 2011

I love sessions with dancers, and this session with Scott & Melissa was no exception! Scott was one of my students many years ago. He met his wife, Melissa while dancing on a cruise ship. They both now dance in Myrtle Beach. It was so much fun to hang out with them and their daughter Molly to get these shots.

What fun – jumping with mom & dad.

And rolling down the hill with dad.

Thanks Scott & Melissa for a great shoot!

I have had so many sweet little angels in my home studio this month. I love trying new sets while we’re stuck indoors for the winter!
