Thank you everyone, I wanted to give an update; I decided to go ahead and do the photo shoot, I really like this photographer as she is very experienced with dance photography. She takes amazing photos of people and I really like her work. That's why I was disappointed in how I came out in my performance shots. But I realize that maybe I've been too harsh on myself. I'm in no obligation to love all of the photos, and you are right Safran, I dance for the audience and not for the photos. This last show was a bellydance event with my teacher watching in the audience and her mentor as well. It was a really big deal and I was incredibly nervous. I learned so much about myself that night. In any event, I will see after I do this photo shoot if I can post pics here so you all see.
