The Studio Experience
What to Expect
Your Time to Shine
The Exulting Images experience has been carefully crafted to showcase your individual expression, celebrate your dance journey, and create memories that will last a lifetime. Together, we will capture moments in time otherwise unseen – and the empowerment, pride and exuberance you will feel from seeing yourself through a different lens will take your breath away.
We can’t wait to make art together!
Book Your Session
Our studio is fully equipped and flexible to satisfy your every dance photography need. We offer 2-hour Creative, Themed and Outdoor sessions and 30-minute dance Headshot sessions. Not sure which dance photoshoot is right for you? Connect with us to talk through options!
Once you book your session we’ll jump into creative mode, starting with a “Meet the Dancer” questionnaire that helps us get to know you – including the dance disciplines you practice, how long you’ve been dancing, and how often you take classes.
Prepare For Your Session
Every aspect of your ei experience is tailored to you.
Ahead of your session, we will request a list of 8 to 10 dance poses you want to capture as well as photos of 5 to 7 wardrobe pieces (outfits, costumes or leotards) that vary in color and style. From here, Team ei will plan your dance photoshoot! We’ll pull backdrops, props and set pieces, and create inspired lighting schemes that will bring your vision to life.
Note: All wardrobe choices and poses must be parent-approved for dancers under 18 years old.
This is your day! Prepare to have your every need met!
We’ll hang your wardrobe, adjust the temperature, play your favorite music, keep refreshments on hand, give you space to stretch, invite last minute touch ups … we want you to feel your absolute best!
Capturing grace, precision and power requires hard work and perseverance.
To get the best shot, we’ll correct and adjust as we go. A 50” screen on set and a 24” off stage allows you to instantly see what the dance photographer sees, making communication seamless.
Our photoshoots are a collaboration between dance photographer and dancer. We have a plan and also leave room for creative freedom. We follow our intuition until we get “the shot”.
We start with dance headshots and move on to poses, typically shooting each pose 3 to 10 times. The session wraps only when everyone is thrilled.
Choose Your Photos
Before you leave, we’ll schedule your 30 to 45 minute in-person or virtual gallery experience within a week.
During this time, we’ll view your highlight reel and all of your photos, create your portfolio, and select your digital package and/or print bundle. Our packages range from $165 to $1,999, and all include digital images. Choosing your collection of dance photos can be hard – bring those involved in the decision making process with you!
Two weeks later, your gorgeous dance photos will be yours to keep!
