Over the years, my kids have developed a love for ice skating. They’ve found an amazing program here in York and it’s done a wonderful job of keeping the kids’ interests while showing them just how much fun they can have out there on the ice! So back in April, I got the chance to photograph their ice skating event once more and I’m excited to share those photos with you!
The Malloy Family : Ice Skating Night Showcase
My kids have been training on the ice for quite some time now with my good friend, Kala Enfield. Kala has actually helped me photograph weddings in the past and even tried to give me ice skating lessons. Though, I think I might have a ways to go before I get out there for her ice skating program
This event was one of the many held in York, PA that I’ve been able to photograph, and it even featured my two amazing nieces, Ellie and Zoe!
Ellie and Zoe have a true love for the ice, you can see it in the way they skate. For this performance, everyone had a bit of fun. You can see Zoe in the clown outfit and Ellie in the pink dress and hat. My sister-in-law also skated for this performance and she was absolutely amazing! She’s in the yellow dress and blue sash towards the end of the photos. She was really tearing it up out there on the ice and did a wonderful job. Kala was in the purple top and skirt and you could definitely see why she qualifies to teach others this amazing artform.
It was so amazing getting to photograph this ice skating event. This exhibition show was unique in that it had spotlights which allowed for gorgeous, dramatic shots of each skater. I LOVE showcase events like this, where skaters can dress up and have lots of fun and creativity with their performance! Being able to capture my friends and family flawlessly execute move after move was incredible to watch.
Do I love weddings? Of course I do! But I also love photographing other types of events where people can showcase their amazing talent. I especially love the craft of timing moments and capturing an image of an ice skater that shows their passion, beauty, and skill.
All in all, this was an amazing ice skating event, featuring the Malloy family among others and I truly enjoyed the entire night we had! Keep up the amazing work, guys!
