In the late fall of 2011 I was contacted by Kinikia of DC Hippodrome for Tropical Shows, to participate in my Poetry of Motion Art Project. She is a Polynesian and fire dancer and of course I was excited to add a different flair to this dance project. I really wanted to do a fire dance shoot with this talented performer but due to permitting and availability we were unable to schedule but we set up a Polynesian shoot at Nottoway Park in Vienna, Virginia. I love the rich vibrant colors of her costumes and enjoyed shooting these uniquely beautiful dance portraits to share with you.
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
