You’ve got your daughter’s standard ballet photo provided by the dance studio. You know the one—weight on the back leg, front foot pointed, ballet arms to the side. Or maybe she’s graduated to the arabesque and head shot, the ones where you reserve her 15-minute time slot for $75 or more. She has to nail those two bland poses, and you get two digital photos that look just like everyone else’s.
It’s time to upgrade. Your ballerina has worked her ruffled butt off for years to have the strength to nail some amazing poses. Why aren’t you showing that off? Here are ten beautiful pointe shoe poses from my portfolio that will show off all that hard work and give you unique photos that are worthy of all that hard work.
You see, pointe shoe photoshoots don’t have to be only about the classic poses. Get that head shot and arabesque, but make sure you get some fun poses to show off your dancer’s unique personality. She’ll only be this age once!
