Get to know your photographer

Hi, I’m Sandrien!

As a portrait photographer, I have plenty of experience photographing dancers. I shoot editorial-style photos that capture real emotions and body language, so you get photos that look natural. My goal as your photographer is to make your dancer feel comfortable and confident. I have plenty of creative ideas for dance pictures that will create a fun and unique experience! Together, we’ll create stunning photos that capture their true personality.

What others are saying

about my full session experience


On multiple occasions, I have had the privilege of shooting with Ms Sandrien and it never has been anything short of amazing. As a professional model in the dance industry, it's easy to expect the photographer to have a lack of compassion when it comes to understanding what your model can and cannot do. Not with Ms Sandrien, she always goes the extra mile to make me feel comfortable, confident, and fierce in front of the lens. She has been a pleasure to work with and makes every photo session fun, memorable, and filled with joy.

Gina L. – BEAT Addikts United dancer

Sandrien is the sweetest lady you will ever meet and makes you feel warm and comfortable. I highly encourage you to get your photos done by Sandrien for the most natural, fantastic, and creative-looking photos! Seeing yourself naturally smile on camera is a whole different kind of beautiful. Her work is incredible and I was so ecstatic to see the results. She is the best photographer in the Tri-state area! 


Every photo shoot I’ve had with Ms. Sandrien has always been the best and most professional. I had my very first session when I was about 14 or 15 and I had absolutely zero confidence, as well as trust in myself. Having her talk with me and figure out what fit best for me absolutely changed the way I viewed myself, not only as a dancer but as a person, and I am forever grateful for her support, patience, and guidance.

Jillian E. – SCAD and BAU dancer

Mrs. Sandrien is the most talented photographer I have ever gotten the chance to work with! She always makes me feel super comfortable and helps me out with all of my poses. Her sessions are always so fun for me and I truly enjoy seeing the creativity in all of her photos.

Sommer V. – SCAD and BAU dancer

I have had the privilege of being photographed by Sandrien B Photography on multiple occasions for my dance teams and professional headshots. She has made the experience professional yet enjoyable and the outcome is always amazing. I wouldn’t hesitate to ever use her or recommend her in the future for all photography needs. 

Sandrien is a cover photographer for Delaware Today Magazine.

Can I, as a parent, be at the session?
