About CJ Wilkes Photography

Capturing Your Dance In The Rain is such a thrill and joy to me. Being able to look back on those special times through beautiful artistic imagery makes it a worthwhile challenge.
Learning to Dance in the Rain has been very easy for me. I am drawn to Water & Life! The exciting part for me is to teach you to enjoy your moment in the dance as I capture it from behind my camera.
Looking forward to Capturing Your Dance In The Rain

In the Green

Nathanya is a child that has subtle facial expression changes – but makes for some extremely awesome dramatic shots.  She had decided that she wanted to have her pictures taken in the trees.  I was shocked since she loves the beach, but very excited because she is not one that does much more than make mud castles LOL.  So we went and played in the trees!  We had so much fun in the woods.

Here is what we came up with.








I have to share what happened here on this last take from this log.  She was sitting there and says – There is a spider on me!!!  I asked if she could flick it off her so she says ok and just flicked it off.  When she did I see this HUGE thing fly from her lap!!!  This was no little spider – she did not scream at all, but had had it with that log.  LOL  Thus this lovely shot which is a personal favorite.  I actually have many favorites from this day.




I love the innocence of children – they make me smile whether they are on the beach, in the playground, or in the woods.  They are darling ~ and capturing them in their element fills my happy cup!
