Dance Packages

Lux Photo Studio’s dance photographer team excels at both natural light outdoors and in-studio shots using strobes. We specialize in “sandwich” lighting for our dance sessions that provide a very pleasing silhouette. Since we use the sun as a backlight in our signature natural light photos, Golden Hour is typically the best time to schedule an outdoor shoot with us! It’s truly beautiful in these Colorado Springs mountains and we’re ready to utilize it!
Travel fees may apply to anywhere outside Colorado Springs and Denver.

We find dance photography both expressive and elegant. Dancing is a universal language that everyone speaks. There’s nothing more exhilarating than perfectly timing that jump or powder throw. Lux Photo Studio has a large garage backdrop for dancers, gymnasts, and cheerleaders to do jumps, kicks, and more! Our dance concepts include Holi powder, colored liquid, rain, smoke bombs, and UV blacklight. Contact us to book your session now!

Dance Concepts

Listed below are the specialized dance concepts we currently offer. “Sandwich” lighting is our standard setup for dancers/gymnasts/cheerleaders. It provides a nice silhouette of the dancer and requires less concentration on facial expressions. Our UV blacklight concept is like a galaxy far far away. The skin-safe reflective paint that we use is out of this world! We also provide Holi powder sessions that add a pop of color to those energetic tosses, flips, throws and jumps. The rain / water concept was adopted from some of the most well-known dance photographers out there. This concept works best with at least two assistants. The super colorful smoke bombs have a potent sulfur-like smell and therefore are best utilized in outdoor sessions. Smoke bombs bring life to photos with vibrant, vivid smoke effects.

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE FOR MY PHOTOSHOOT?
For dancers, gymnasts, and cheerleaders, we ask that you come with hair and makeup done. If you require hair and makeup services, they are available for an extra fee. Please wear loose fitting clothes to your session- leggings and other tight fitting apparel leave unsightly lines in skin that require extra steps to edit in Photoshop. Dancers/Gymnasts/Cheerleaders should prepare the day before their shoot by practicing and remembering poses they are comfortable doing. 15-30 poses would be perfect for a 1 hour shoot. This way we won’t spend 5 minutes between poses finding Instagram inspiration.
And most importantly, get your beauty sleep!

DO YOU HAND-EDIT PHOTOS?
Yes! We hand-edit every image. This is an easy way to avoid over-edited images- and we don't batch-process! With over 16 years of experience using the Adobe Creative Suite, we've developed a workflow using primarily Photoshop and Lightroom for our editing needs. We only provide heavily edited magazine-quality images.

WHAT CONCEPTS DO YOU OFFER?
Lux Photo offers a variety of concepts. In our home studio, we have a large garage with a white wall backdrop for all those big jumps and more! We’ve experimented with colored Holi powder, colored liquid, rain, smoke bombs, UV Blacklights, and “sandwhich” style studio lighting. We do specialized concepts too! Follow us on Instagram (@luxportraitstudio) to be the first to know when we do a model call for unique concepts!

WHAT IF I LOSE MY PHOTOS?
Digital copies can be retrieved from us at no charge (although we don’t keep files backed up for longer than six months post-session. Files are large and require careful and costly backup and protection).

DO YOU HAVE A STUDIO?
Yes! Our home studio is located in Colorado Springs. We also have access to third-party studio space or other private venues as needed. We even have portable equipment for indoor spaces where natural light may not be abundant.

WHO IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER?
Cole Norton is our primary photographer. Carly Siegle is in charge of behind-the-scenes, styling and photo editing!

DO YOU HAVE A REFERRAL DISCOUNT?
Absolutely! Refer a friend or colleague and you will receive a $100 credit toward your print product order. Your friends are our friends too, so you'll also receive a $100 voucher toward either your next session or a friend's! (Must be redeemed within 14 days.)
Our Instagram Ambassadors also have special referral discounts too!

ARE MY DIGITAL IMAGES WATERMARKED?
Yes- your final digital edited photos will come with the Lux Photo watermark. If you decide that you want to purchase print products from our a-la-carte menu, such as canvases or albums, they will be watermark free.
