Haley's Recital

Last weekend, Haley had her dance recital at the Hobby Center. You never really realize how much light your camera needs (wants) until you go to a really dark place and try to shot some action shots.

She was in 4 routines- tap, jazz, ballet and hip-hop (modern). I sat through about 21 acts in the first half, and she danced all of hers in the second half. We were sitting waaaay back, but I snuck up into an empty seat to try to get some better pics of her.

I took TONS of photos, and even got a few good ones. This was her tap routine. She's been dancing for at least 9 years, and really enjoys it.

I made the total rookie mistake of running out of memory! I'd filled up my cards with crazy brides that morning, and forgot to check that I might fire several hundred photos during her dance routines.

This was her last dance, and I liked it the best. Pretty flow-y dress that was night and bright for my camera. :)

I learned a lot photographing this event, and I'm sure I'll be back at it again next year.

Instant flashback to November of 1999. I must have been home for Thanksgiving and went to pick Haley up at her dance studio. She would have been a little over 4 here.

GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Yea for July! Fun stuff coming this month- painting my office, weekend in Austin, Dynamo soccer game, Harvest Festival at the winery and much more!
