Dance Advocate Joan | Denver Headshot Photography

Joan wanted to reinvigorate her presence on social media so that she could be more connected to her community and industry. She knew that one the most important pieces of this would be imagery, so she hired me for Denver headshot photography. We did a mini headshot session at her home in Denver. She has a beautiful backyard with gardens and a lovely deck. Since it was such a lovely day, we did all of the photos outside. Joan also wanted to get a few photos with her dog to use for holiday cards. I loved that idea, so we made sure to get a few of them together.
My mini headshot package was the perfect fit for Joan. She needed a new profile photo so she could keep her professional appearance online. The mini session is only half an hour, so it’s just the right amount of time for clients to warm up to me and get those great, personality-filled photos we’re looking for.
Joan and I met through the Presenting Denver Dance Festival committee, which we serve on together. We just put on our first festival last weekend! Joan has had an incredible career in the world of dance as well as through her interior design business. After earning a BS in Dance Education from the University of Utah and an MA from the University of Colorado, she was a dance teacher with Denver Public Schools for 32 years. She has served on the boards of many local dance organizations and worked to bring big name dance companies to Denver. She also owned her own dance company, School of Modern Dance and taught there as well. Joan has been very active with the Carson Brierly Giffin Dance Library, part of the University of Denver’s main library, Anderson Academic Commons. In 2010 she was honored as a “Living Legends of Dance” by the Carson-Brierly Dance Library.
