Flour & Powder Sessions

Color powder and flour sessions are one of the most innovative sessions offered in the world of dance photography and we’ve won the People’s Choice Award in 2020 for our flour sessions. The sharp contrast of the white versus the stark black backdrops offer some of the most vivid imagery you’ll find. Interested in adding bold and rich colors to your sessions? Colored Holi Powder is what you want and we’ve got that too.

We offer a rainbow assortment of colors to work with and you’ve got plenty of time to experiment with the powder to figure out exactly how to get the best images possible. We’ll even happily demonstrate some of the different techniques of how to work with and throw the powder so that you can see the differences in appearance.

While I originally focused these powder sessions on dancers and gymnasts, I’ve been expanding their use into other sports like lacrosse, volleyball, and soccer. I have yet to find a single sport that a little extra powder doesn’t bring the activity to life with a pop! Note that some of these other sports and activities require extra time to really capture the images the way that we both want – so plan accordingly.

These are the sessions that everyone talks about. They typically only happen just twice a year when it’s just warm enough at night without being too bright too late into the evening. Sometimes these evenings can still be a little brisk which is why the sessions are shorter in time frame. Don’t worry about the cold though, you’ll be having too much fun to even care.

Looking to book a full dance studio or team? Yup, we can totally handle that and you can own the night with special group rates.

Beware! These aren’t photoshop overlays, you WILL be covered in powder and flour when you head home. Even after using a leaf blower to get rid of the large majority of the flour before you leave, you’ll still be covered 😉


These sessions don’t happen very often, typically just two times each year. The first time is often around Memorial Day weekend with the second time around Labor Day weekend. Session fees are just $175 per 15-minute time slot with approximately 5-7 edited images included. All images from the session are available within 72-hours and edits are provided shortly after.
