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
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 was also
asked to take action photos of The Thomas Armour Youth Ballet and New World
School of the Arts Nutcracker Production in 2011.
I am currently the Studio Photographer at Artistic Soul Studios in Miami.
While I have a specialty 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!
