I ♥ Dancing ▌Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona

I LOVE dancing. It's how I met my husband, at a lindy-hop workshop in Tucson. Hard to imagine right now with 34 weeks of pregnant belly starring back at me, but we used to fly to other states to swing dance for three days straight; think big band music, flowers tucked behind the ear, vintage hair and clothes, the works. Ahhh, life before kiddos...

The theme for this week's I ♥ Faces photo contest is "Dancing". Unfortunately, when we attend these awesome, very picturesque venues, I seldom take anything of value as it is ditched in the corner for the night, so very few pictures have come home with us. But as I have posted previously, some of our very good swing dancing friends recently got hitched and somehow, even at 1250 ISO, F2.8, and no flash, I still managed several fantastic action shots, this dancing sequence remains my favorite from the past year.

Come back later this week for a look at Southern Arizona's award winning "18th Annual Cowboy Poetry Gathering". For my last shooting engagement prior to maternity leave (which is feeling very overdue at this point!) I teamed up with local photographer Pauline Fredericks to cover the three day event. I've got over 700 amazing images to sort through, of the most sincere, wholesome, entertaining, country folk, you could ever hope to meet and hang out with! I LOVE me some "unlimited access"!!

Oh, that is stunning! What a great vintage feel...

This has a great vintage feel, and I think the higher ISO really made it much more interesting than if it had been a noiseless photo. Great choice!

The whole feel of the picture is so perfect, but the look they are sharing is the real beauty of the moment. Ah, new love... :) (And I can't wait for the Cowboy pictures!!)

Great job posting while you have your own little tap dancer to think about. Beautiful emotion.

This is truly an awesome shot. They look so in love and like they are having the time of their life. I love the graininess of it, it adds to that swing them that you are talking about. This is such a neat story. Thanks for sharing!
