The Annual Kernersville Father-Daughter Dance 2019
Feb 11, 2019 | By: Elizabeth Larson Photography
This past Saturday, February 9th, was the annual Kernersville Parks & Recreation's Father-Daughter Dance. This was my 5th year in a row photographing the dads and their adorable girls, some of them beautiful young ladies now. Several told us that they've been coming as many as 15 years. Even one dad and his daughter told us she comes home from college every year to spend time with her dad at this very special event. I wish they'd had this sort of thing when I was growing up!
The theme this year was "The Enchanted Forest" and the decorations looked so magical throughout. Dan with On Target DJ returned this year as well & I always enjoy working with him. He was great by making announcements to be sure to get your photo taken before the night was over. I was able to take a quick break and take a peak out at the dance floor and everyone was having a wonderful time. Face-painting was offered by the gals at UPDO's Studio. And they served everything from pizza to chicken tenders and of course cookies!
This year, I decided to do something a little different. I offered a full length photo and close-up if anyone wanted one as well as individual photos of just the girls. I chose a white muslin background with a pale blue and silver sparkly swoop across the background. And the prop was a simple white column with a plant on it for that "woodsy" look. This is the first year I offered full length and I think it was a success! If you click on an image below, it will show you the entire image.
My partner Terry was an amazing photo assistant again this year. He helped keep the line going - and it was long! So grateful for everyone's patience, as it takes time and I want to get incredible photographs! As always we had a wonderful time & we are already looking forward to returning next year. If you think you'd like to attend next year, typically tickets go on sale in early January through the parks and rec and they sell out fast. From what I remember hearing, they sold out within 48 hours this year! So don't wait.
If you know of another father-daughter dance held in the greater NC Triad & they don't have a photographer, please reach out to me. I'd love to photograph more of these super fun events!
