Stress Free Picture Day Experience 

With a schedule made to fit your specific needs and class roster, picture day is a breeze! With time carved out for dynamic group shots, and three poses per dancer per costume-you can be sure your school and dancers will get the most out of the experience. 

Dynamic Action

Freezing time is our superpower! Ash lives for immortalizing the apex of a leap, the perfect upside down center split of an  aerial or the milli second the dancer can pop up on relevé, creating the perfect line. Whatever your dancer is the most proud of achieving this year, you can bet Ash can capture it!

Although we are serious about the service we provide- we keep a light and fun energy on picture day. We love having fun while we work hard, and we hope this attitude spreads to your dancers.
