New photo shoot

It has been over a year since my last belly dance photo shoot, so I knew I was long over due. I like to get a professional photo shoot done at least once a year to document what I truly look like as a belly dancer. Let’s face it, nothing is worse than false advertising. I mean, have you ever thought someone looked one way only to find them looking 10 years older when you meet them in person (online dating comes to mind!)? I also love my costumes and I love to...

And a new year is here!

Wow, it’s 2013! I’m looking forward to some exciting things this year and I hope 13 won’t be an unlucky number for me. I’m not much of a resolution maker, but I do have some goals for the coming year. A couple of them are still under wraps, but there are a few I can share with you. Continue investing time, resources and energy into my students: While my student troupe and belly dance classes are small, I work with an amazing group of women....

Costume closet

Posted on Dec 15, 2012

I’m addicted to all things costume related, so I thought I would post a gallery of my current costume selection.

I love mixing and matching. If you’re not into making your own pieces, I highly recommend L. Rose Designs. Have a question or comment about one of my costumes? Leave a...

Long time, no blog

Wow, has it really been since June since my last blog? Shame on me! I used to be so good at updating! And here we are in October with fall bringing its first chilly weather. But I haven’t been doing nothing! While it is true that I haven’t been belly dancing as much as I want to, I’ve been busy with work and planning my wedding (it’s this weekend!), I’ve still been doing a little bit here and there. Here’s a rundown of how my summer and...

The Intimate Lens – Photos by Bonnie Stanley

The Intimate Lens – Photos by Bonnie Stanley

At the beginning of the month I had a photo shoot with Bonnie Stanley, owner and photographer at the Intimate Lens. I chose Bonnie because of her gorgeous use of light and her artistic flair. Bonnie is truly an artist and she knows how to make dancers look great. She’s also great to work with because she tells you exactly what she wants, helps with poses and gets very excited when things turn out great! I can’t wait until another opportunity to model for her! So...
