While specializing in dance photography, I also take Event Photos and Individual/Family Portraits in the studio and on location. Photography is my passion and preserving other peoples significant memories is a pleasure. I look forward to capturing your memories too!
When I was 11 years old, my Grandmother gave me a Minolta 35mm camera for my birthday. From that day on, I became everyone’s “official” photographer, whether it was at school, a family gathering, or, later, my children’s dance studio.
Born in New Jersey, but raised in Miami, I fine-tuned my photography skills by experimenting with equipment, composition, lighting and motion. When my daughter began to dance, I noticed that most competition photographers missed the best action or didn’t pay attention to detail. I began taking pictures of the other dancers from the studio and when the parents saw the photos and asked to purchase them, my business, Photography by Debbie was born.
My children, are both dancers now and I enjoy preserving the memories of their dancing for them. In 2009 I was honored to be chosen as the Children’s Portrait Photographer for The Miami City Ballet School where I took Nutcracker Portraits, Class Portraits and End of Year Portraits for 2 years. I also had the pleasure of being the live action photographer for The Thomas Armour Youth Ballet and New World School of the Arts Nutcracker production from 2011 to 2014, in addition to being the exclusive studio photographer at Artistic Soul Studios from 2010 to 2015.
