PA Academy of Dance recital 2014

When Samantha contacted me to photograph the PA Academy of Dance 2014 recital, I was SO excited! The older dancers have matured so much in their art over the year, and when the babies walked on to the stage, I was in tears – they are SO precious!!!



This year, Busy Bee boutique photography has transitioned to the PASS galleries. I am so excited about this new way of sharing digital images. From your computer, tablet or even your phone, you may access the photos, share them and even order prints. I’m not sure what is better, that prints are fulfilled directly from my professional lab, or that they have AMAZING pricing! (4×6=$1, 5×7=$2, 8×12=$4) YES! Those prices are correct – amazing, huh!? And did I mention that you may order them right from your smart phone!? What are you waiting for?

The new gallery is LIVE FOR 30 DAYS. Just CLICK THIS LINK to access the gallery!


I’ve heard from a few that they were having a hard time getting a good photograph. This type of lighting is tricky. I shoot in full manual mode, (and I do capture a RAW file although that is not necessary). If you were having a hard time with this light, or if you would like to learn how to use the manual mode of your DSLR, let me know! I’m putting together a workshop, and I’d love to include you on my invitation list.

Thank you to Samantha, all the teachers and the wonderful dancers! Please enjoy your photographs!

Remember, this gallery is live for 30 DAYS, then it expires, and I can’t bring it back to PASS, but it will be in my archives.

If you’d like to schedule your own session with me, just give me a buzz! Robin 412.901.5901.

Font of the Week ~

I’m not usually a big fan of a serif font. They can seem clunky, junky or just ugly.

What’s the difference between a ‘serif’ and a ‘sans serif’ font, you may be thinking. {that sounds familiar … I used to know that… } well the difference is that a serif font has a small line attached to the end of a stroke in a letter, while a sans serif font does not.

This font is a SERIF font, and I LOVE it! It’s called Matchbook Serif. This font has a serif and a sans serif version, so it’s really fabulous!

Here’s where you can get Matchbook serif: http://www.dafont.com/matchbook-serif.font

and Matchbook, which is sans serif: http://www.dafont.com/matchbook.font
