Katie – Baltimore’s Inner Harbor

On a breezy October Day I met Katie and her Mother in Baltimore for this beautiful shoot. Katie is a beautiful young dancer and model who was truly a pleasure to work with. Her Mother saw my ad for dancers to be featured in this Poetry of Motion project and contacted me about her interest. Upon viewing her headshot I thought Katie would bring a fresh young perspective to this project and was of course very interested in working with her. It was a gorgeous late fall day in Baltimore when our busy schedules allowed us to work together, there was a nice breeze which in several of the images really impart a sense of movement to Katie’s posing. She was a true professional and we wish Katie all the best in her future endeavors and I’m sure we will work together again in this business!

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

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!

”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
