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
SAMANTHA B. – SCAD, BAU and FLO X DANCER
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.
Maddy L. – PDT and BEAT Addikts United dancer
I had the best experiences with Sadrien B Photography for headshots, team photos, and photos during performances. No matter the occasion or avant-garde photoshoot theme, Sandrien never failed to capture the most beautiful photos and emotional moments. My favorite will always be our Beat Performance Team photoshoot where we incorporated colored powder. I now keep these photos in my room and house as the perfect way to remember some of my best dance team memories.
Angeleah A. – BEAT ADDIKTS UNITED DANCER
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.
Leah G. – PDT, FloX and BAU dancer
I always love working with Mrs. Sandrien! She is not only a great photographer, but a wonderful person as well. Working with her brings out the best in my personality, which she does a great job of capturing in the pictures that she takes. While shooting during the pandemic, she took proper precautions and did everything she could to ensure my safety as well as her own!
Maddie D. – PDT and BAU dancer
During my senior photoshoot for Padua Dance Team, Sandrien made me feel comfortable, confident, and special, during a time when i had lost many of the special moments of my senior year. I felt completely safe due to the care Sandrien took with social distancing, and her creativity with incorporating social distancing produced amazing and memorable photos.

I photographed many events for Mr Tori and was the photographer for the annual Padua Dance Team sessions in 2018-2019 and even the senior session in 2020. I'm also the photographer for Beat Addikts United, TOCD performance team, Shannon Cooper's Academy of dance, 313 Dance Company, FloXclusive Dance Company and have photographed dancers for the cover of Delaware today magazine.
Can I, as a parent, be at the session?
Unfortunately because of Covid-guidelines, we like to keep the amount of people in the location as small as possible and ask parents and guardians to wait outside.
