A Sweet 16th!

A sweet 16 party at the Captain’s Inn kicked off the weekend and the next phase in a young girls life. I had the pleasure of photographing the event and with the guest of honor being a dancer, she has been in front of my lens and in many of my live dance photos numerous times.

Events like this are always loads of fun but this one was also bit nerve racking for me as I knew many of the over 100 people in attendance from our dance school. Likewise, this also made it very easy to capture the craziness,

and truly feel the emotional moments like those between best friends during the candle lighting ceremony,

Best Friends

 Parents beaming with pride, 


A group of friends showing their support,


An evening of celebration and by the end, some worn out and very tired feet, 


Happy Sweet 16 Kelsey!


Thanks for stopping by!  Till next time…
