Caroline Grace – Asaph Dance Ensemble

Our last shoot for 2012 was with a talented young dancer who we have shot before, Caroline Grace! I wanted to do some formal studio shots in black and white or at least more mono-chromatic images. Grace and the Owner of her studio, The Asaph Dance Ensemble in Manassas Va., both graciously agreed to help. It was a rainy day and I had my nephew along to learn studio lighting techniques and to carry the heavy equipment! I love these images and hope you do as well!

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

Caroline Grace – Nelson Park, Manassas

Following the shoot with Angelina I thought I would contact a young woman that I had worked with previously to showcase another young and talented dancer. Grace’s Mother Dana, commissioned my studio last year to shoot Grace’s Senior Ballet Solo Recital and I thought she would make a wonderful addition to my Poetry of Motion project. Grace is a beautiful young woman and a very talented and graceful dancer, she performs with the Asaph Dance Ensemble and is a student of  The Northern Virginia Dance Academy. For her shoot I chose Nelson Park in Manassas, Virginia, I shot a wedding at this park 15 years ago at the beginning of my professional career, and love the gazebo and the fountain at this beautifully quaint little park right outside of Old Town. Grace was a pleasure to work with and we shot some fantastic additions to the project.

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
