WANT YOUR DANCERS TO SEE THE BEST IN THEMSELVES?

Me too. I believe self-image is everything: it is the tale we tell ourselves of who we are and what we can achieve. And it’s hard to be what you can’t see in yourself. That’s why I work closely with each junior to create the most beautiful, self-empowering dance photos we can.

I guide them in each pose and expression so their portraits reflect the very best of their skills and personality. Because I want your kids to see their own artwork and be reminded of their own limitless and incredible potential....

Dance Photography – Capture the Beauty and Spirit of a Dancer

At Bonofiglio Photography, our team, lead by one of the best dance photographers in Melbourne, works closely with each junior to create the most beautiful, self-empowering dance photos. This is not your average dance or ballet photography, but a artistic experience committed to capturing all of this exciting energy, strength, beauty and movement.

Dance Pro Photography – A Diverse Range of Styles & Affordable Plans

Whether your dancers are doing ballet, jazz, tap or hip hop, we’ll capture their personalities through portraits they love! 

Celebrate What Makes You UniqueMelbourne Sports Photographer Marina Bonofiglio captures not just the skills dancers work hard to get for their competitions and performance but also what makes their personalities unique. 

Remembrance of Who You Are – Working hard on capturing every movement in the best technique possible. Our team creates portraits that allow dancers to reflect on their childhood years with pride.

Personal Approach – Every kid is different: introverted, extroverted, shy, confident, serious or vibrant. But no matter who you kid is they deserve dance photographers in Melbourne who understand their unique way of being in the world.

Professional Portraits – Our process starts with a zoom consultation in which we are going to cover everything: which style of portraits you like best, what to wear, your favourite poses and all the attention to artistic details that will result in stunning images.

A dance portrait captures your spirit like no other type of photography. Our goal is to give each person we work with a stunning portrait that will make them feel proud. We offer custom dance pro photography sessions in our studio in Melbourne, Australia.

Frequently Asked Questions

● Do you shoot inside or outside?
Marina Bonofiglio shoots in the studio. At Bonofiglio Photography, the best-rated studio for dance pro photography in Melbourne, we believe in capturing the best shots that bring out the best in you. This is more important than the location we are shooting. You can let us know the location during the initial consultation, and we will be present on the scheduled day to click photographs that reveal your passion for dance.

● What are the payment plans?
We offer interest-free payment plans that are super easy. You can pay in full or choose our 12-month payment plans. Our artwork starts at $29 a week, and we make it easy and affordable for every one of our clients.

● Do I get photographed by Marina herself?
Yes, Marina will be your dance photographer, and she works closely with each client to achieve images that reflect their individual personality, not just their dance technique. Before beginning the session, she will ask about your goals to help you find the best poses for your needs.

● Do you offer design consultation?
Yes! When you choose us for your ballet photography, we are always available to offer you a design consultation. The consultation can be in person or through a video from the comfort of your own home. We will use this time to understand your kids, their personalities, how they want to be photographed, and more. This helps us prepare for the session and create incredible photos that you will cherish forever.

THE POWER OF SELF-IMAGE

We tend to believe that photographs are a mirror of who we are. So when we see one we like we feel good, but when we see one we dislike we doubt ourselves, we resent how we look and we hesitate on what we can achieve. And while you probably see the absolute best in your kids, they are their own humans, forming a self-image of their own.

I believe that the earlier juniors develop positive self-image, the easier it is for them to be confident in their own decisions, to build healthy relationships and to strive for the life they want.

My studio creates artwork because no matter if your kids are having a bad day, feeling unmotivated, or self-doubting, they can always have that mirror of themselves that will reflect some of the best facets of who they are and make them say ‘Wow, that’s me!’

    WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING

    Em struggled immensely to get back into life as she knew it in 2020. She was so nervous the day of her photoshoot that she nearly pulled out. I messaged Marina to give her heads up and the response was so comforting that it put my daughter at ease. Em felt comfortable during the photoshoot and they had a lot of fun together.
    My daughter loved her artwork. She is very self concious but her first response was ‘amazing’. These photos are something she will have forever to remind her of the resilience it took to get through the year with head just above water.
    Mel, Emily's mum.

    Amazing experience, from the minute we walked into Marina’s studio. We were greeted with nothing but fantastic service. My daughter had a great day in the studio, we were very impressed with the care and expertise taken to provide us with the perfect images. Marina is seriously a talented artist! She was super professional with buckets of creativity. Easy to work with and the quality of the photos taken are exceptional. The final outcome of images give you that point of difference!
    WE LOVE YOU! Absolutely amazing photos! A thousand Thankyou’s x

    Dani, Mia's mum.

    REACTIONS & ARTWORK

    My absolute favourite part of each photoshoot is when I receive videos parents send to me of their athletes reacting to seeing their portraits for the first time. There are tears, dancing, giggles of joy, hugs and more. Want to see these?
