dance + fun + photos = awesome


Book your child in for a fun dance photoshoot
on May 22nd
Book us in please
Mariposa Studios and Rebecca Holmes Photography have joined forces to bring the students of Mariposa a wonderful opportunity to capture some beautiful dance photographs… 

This year the theme is breezy sparkle! 

What are we doing and how does it work?

This year is a little less messy, but still LOADS of fun. We'll be mixing a wind machine with gorgeous fabric and a bit of sparkle!

On arrival, students will have the option of having their faces (and bodies, time permitting) painted using gold or silver face paint and glitter. All are non-toxic and appropriate for children's skin. 

Once 'sparkled', the students will be guided by teachers into poses using beautiful lengths of fabric. 

They'll then perform their pose/jump/move on the photography set with a big wind machine! This creates gorgeous shapes and is LOTS of fun for the students. 

As always, this will all be kept at the child’s comfort level, and you will be on hand to supervise at all times.

Sounds fun! Book Us In!

Who am I?

I’m Rebecca Holmes, an award winning people and dance photographer with over two decades of experience taking photographs professionally. I also have a background in musical theatre and dance.

I’m a dance-mum of three, a sometimes costume maker and part-time vocal coach. I am particularly fond of Nutella (on anything) and I love a good Scottish gin.

I love working with dancers of all abilities, capturing beautiful images of them doing what they love. I have fond memories of the feeling of freedom, exhilaration and fun when I danced – and it’s that essence I aim to capture in all my dance photographs.

I am thrilled to be working with Eilidh at Mariposa studios to bring you this fantastic event!
I had the best time!
Rebecca made my shoot fun, she listened to me and helped me with ideas. I had the best time! She’s such a kind and fun person to be around and of course my photos are AMAZING! If any dancers out there are thinking about this, do it, you will have the best time!

unique ability to relax everyone
Rebecca is an incredible photographer but much more than that, she is such a lovely person. When having your photograph taken, it’s great to get that perfect snap but if you’re not comfortable then it shows. Rebecca has a very unique ability to relax everyone in the family. She makes you laugh and directs you in such a way that the end result is way better than a photographer who just knows how to work a camera well.
