fhs dance team 2012-13. {beckynovacekphotography} Dance Team Photographer. Fremont Nebraska

No *b* list today, but check back tomorrow for a *b* list of my favorite summer reads. Oh how I love summer reads. Today, I’m super excited to be sharing dance team photos. Last year, I photographed the Fremont High School Dance Team and I was a little nervous; well more than a little. I knew I wanted to nail it, so I put a ton of pressure on myself. It ended up being creatively fulfilling, fun and exhausting! All good! This year, when Jamey contacted me, I was excited again, but this time my nervousness was based on keeping the standard high and not disappointing them. I am happy to say that I feel really good about this year’s results as well! These girls are seriously amazing. I can’t even handle my excitement about working with them! AND I have to say a big thank you to the team’s moms and sponsors. They are the BEST! We got to one location and I realized I had forgotten a chair. Two of them moms went back to the Loft and grabbed the lightweight chair I needed, as well as a huge vintage chair that is extremely heavy! They got it down the steps and back up again. I was impressed!

So last year, I knew the team needed a digital image of the group for media and sports programs, so I offered to give one of the digital images to them at no charge if the blog post received at least 50 comments. I want to do this again this year. So give this blog post a little love for the team!

This is a recreation of a shot from last year. I considered it a BIG experiment that worked. I left it up to the girls whether they wanted to recreate it and I’ll admit I was glad they did. I think we improved on it from a technical standpoint.

Changed up our alley shot with a smaller chalkboard. Thanks to Inger for the beautiful chalk work!

I sketched this idea about a month before the actual session. I think it works.

These girls are athletes. No doubt.

We got this on one take and we were pretty happy about it.

I could take jumping shots all day.

These two were trusting enough of my idea to go with it.


LOVE even more. Thanks to Vince and Kerstin O’Connor from Yankee Peddler West for offering this vintage megaphone. It’s for sale, so go grab it!

Pretty girls.

This girl is my instagram bud. She has a great creative eye! Thanks to Kurt and Connie Chudomelka from Uncle Sam’s (right below the Loft) for allowing us to use the cool vintage chair Sarah is sitting on : )

I am so blessed to get to photograph such lovely and talented subjects.

God bless your day!
