Kelsey – Walney Pond – Ellanor C. Lawrence Park

I shot these wonderful images of a very talented young woman from the Academy of Russian Ballet in Manassas, Va. These images were shot at Walney Pond a part of Ellanor C. Lawrence Park in Fairfax, Va. It was a beautiful warm late summer afternoon and it was a pleasure working with this talented dancer. Kelsey is a freshman in college and we wish her all the best in her future and thank her for her participation in our art project, “Poetry of Motion.”

We hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoying sharing them with you and we hope you consider supporting this project to bring the beauty of dance to a wider audience by purchasing one of our limited edition prints at our website: www.bpaydenphotography.com/store

Dancing is the poetry of the foot.

Erin – Brookside Gardens – Wheaton, MD

I really enjoyed this shoot with Erin at Brookside Gardens. We met for this shoot a few hours before sunset and captured some marvelous images that I believe capture Erin’s wonderfully positive energy as well as the beauty of dance  and motion that I strive to capture in these shoots. Erin needed almost no direction in posing as she was constantly in motion, dancing and posing as we explored these beautiful gardens in the gorgeous warm evening lighting. She deserves all the credit for these wonderfully artistic images, we have plans to shoot together again in the spring of 2012 and I look forward to working with this wonderful model and dancer again!

We hope you enjoy these images as much as we enjoying sharing them with you and we hope you consider supporting this project to bring the beauty of dance to a wider audience by purchasing one of our limited edition prints at our website: www.bpaydenphotography.com/store

”If we seek the real source of the dance, if we go to nature,

we find that the dance of the future is the dance of the past,

the dance of eternity,

and has been and always will be the same…

The movement of waves, of winds, of the earth

is ever the same lasting harmony.”

– Isadora Duncan
