Introducing Individual Yoga MINIS!

Boston yoga photographer

Hey yogis! I have a little update for you ... a mini one, if you will! I'm adding a new photo shoot to my offerings! Drum roll please ... introducing ...  Individual Yoga Minis!

I heard you loud and clear.

Yoga minis are thirty minute yoga sessions that are designed to be quick, easy, and at a less expensive price point.

I know many of you are looking to follow up after an initial photo shoot together, to shoot more often, in different locations, both indoors and outdoors, updated for the season, to highlight a new workshop you're marketing, etc. so that's where minis come in.

Mini sessions will never replace a full sixty minute session, but they aren't designed to.

As with all of my sessions, you will receive a personalized online gallery to both view and download your images, high resolution images, a 15 mile travel allowance from me in Dedham, and a 3 week turnaround guarantee. Individual yoga minis are $400. (Full 60 minute sessions are $600.)

Now I am pretty sure I can guess your next question. Does this mean I am back from maternity leave? Not quite. Truthfully, I am absolutely loving being at home with my little one year old. And my plan is to stay at home with him for the time being for the majority of my time. That said, I miss shooting. I miss all of you. And I am finding that I have pockets of time where I can dive back into my business. So, you'll see me pop up here and again when I have dates available. Follow me on Instagram and Facebook to keep in touch with me as dates become available.

I will be reaching out to my full list of those of you who reached out over the last year. And you can always follow up with an email at tracy@thrgallery.com just please know I am spending most of my time these days with my little nugget. So, if you're looking for someone who can respond within the hour to all of your emails, I totally get it and am happy to refer you to other photographers.

Have questions? Ask away!

And, you can check out all of the details on my yoga sessions including pricing and frequently asked questions.

Brookline, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Larz Anderson Park {w/ Fran Karoff}

It's hard to believe that I'm wrapping up this summer's season of yoga photo shoots while the sun is still shining and the weather is warm {okay, for this shoot, hot!}. But alas my 8-month pregnant body is telling me to slow down. So with that, I have just a couple of sessions left to share with you all before my maternity leave. And this one I am thrilled to be sharing today.

I met with Fran at the beautiful Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, MA. And unlike the last time I tried to shoot there, this time, we weren't caught in torrential rains with a lightening and thunderstorm to boot! This time, it was perfect. The overcast skies provided for beautiful light and the texture of the stone structures and the beautiful green grass and trees made for a photographer's dream.

I absolutely loved photographing Fran. She has such a calming and nurturing energy about her that is so lovely to photograph. We captured many accessible poses to demonstrate her style of teaching and of course photographed a beautiful gifted bracelet with a phrase she often says in class, "pause for a moment of gratitude." How much do you love that?

Fran currently teaches at the First Congregational Church in Milton. You can learn more about her on her website and Facebook.

Boston, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at the Arnold Arboretum {w/ Morgan Furze}

Whether it be the next season, the next year, or even years after we first meet, I absolutely love when clients reach back out to schedule more photo shoots. I first worked with Morgan back in 2015. You may remember her Arnold Arboretum Yoga Photo Shoot and the gorgeous dusty rose colored puff flowers {yes, I should probably have looked up the real name of this beautiful floral tree} and poses in front of the walls of ivy. This past week, we revisited the Arboretum to catch some beautiful spring time backdrops for her follow up yoga photo shoot. And, I'm so glad that we did. Everything was fresh and green and blooming. I love shooting there because it just feels so full of life. And, Morgan, as always, was glowing herself. I could photograph that smile every season!

I am excited to share previews from our shoot below, and, make sure to follow Morgan on Instagram to see more! You can also find her teaching for Harvard Recreation.

Happy Mother's Day to all of the lovely mothers in my life. From my own amazing mom to all of the mamas I photograph, I hope you all have a wonderful day today, and always.

How perfect that at my most recent yoga photo shoot with Humble Warrior Yoga, Debbie and Julie both brought there adorable little ones and both choose balance poses. Life's a balancing act! I have to say, seeing these two with their daughters made me even more excited to be becoming a mother myself this August {or September}.

Enjoy your day, mamas!

Love,
Tracy

Milton, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Houghton's Pond {Chakra Power Yoga Mini Sessions}

Congratulations to the second group of teacher trainees to graduate from Chakra Power Yoga's 200 hour training! I remember my 200 hour well and can't help but feel a little jealous each time I work with a teacher training group because I definitely miss those days! A special thanks to Elissa, Kim, Adrienne, Amelia, Maura, Larissa, Michelle and Colleen!

For these minis, we met at the beautiful Houghton's Pond in Milton, MA to capture each teacher as they start out in the yoga teaching world! I'm thrilled to share a preview of them with you below. Enjoy!

If you're interested in teacher training, you can sign up for CPY's third group, starting this September! Don't forget to give them a like on Facebook and Instagram to stay tuned to all things CPY!

What does this mean for 2017 clients? For now, business as usual. I am still meeting, booking, shooting, editing and delivering as usual.

{In fact, if you've been meaning to reach out to schedule a photo shoot, please do!}

My plan is to shoot until early August, and then return to shooting in late October. I will be sure to keep you posted here on my blog as well as on my Facebook page.

What does this mean for 2018 clients? I plan to have a full shooting schedule in 2018.

For all of you mom-entrepreneurs out there, especially those of you who work from home, I'd love your advice on managing work and family.

Thank you for all of the love and support! I cannot tell you how appreciative I am of each and every one of you.

Love, Tracy

Three Years Full Time!

Boston Yoga Photographer

I have to admit, things have been running business as usual around here for so long that it took a Facebook memory status this morning to remind me that today marks THREE FULL YEARS running Tracy Rodriguez Photography full time!

I started shooting in 2000, went to yoga teacher training in 2011 - which changed my life (career perspective, life goals, general outlook) - and I started shooting yoga photography directly following. I added on wedding photography in 2013 and then in early 2014, I left my corporate marketing job to run this business with all of my might.

I have loved every second of it, yes, even the grueling number crunching and tedious tasks, because they all add up to me being able to pursue this passion of mine full time.

I am so grateful to all of you, my clients, my fans and followers, my supporters. Please know that I think of you daily and appreciate everything you give. So, from my heart, know I love you. And I thank you.

And if you're in that place, looking to find a way to make your passion your career, know that you can do it. I promise. You have everything it takes. Feel free to comment below for some inspiration or message me any time. I've got your back.

Here's to another year at Tracy Rodriguez Photography!

Namaste.

Tracy

PS - Hey fellow business owners! How do you celebrate your successes? I'll be honest, I typically don't. I may mention something to my husband, mom or sister on the phone. I definitely smile ear to ear. Perhaps I do a little blog shout out here and there. But, in a work from home, one woman show, it's hard to have, say, a team dinner celebration. So what do you do? I'd love to know!

Boston, MA Yoga Photo Shoot {W/ Lauren D'Angelo}

I could not be more thrilled that the beautiful Lauren D'Angelo was my muse for my first yoga photo shoot of 2017! Lauren's energy was absolutely palpable during our photo shoot; it was a blessing to photograph both her positivity and kindness that radiates in her smile, and her strength that comes through in her challenging poses.

This lady has a ton of amazing events and classes coming up that I'd love to shout out. You'll definitely want to check them out starting with her Family Yoga Workshop this Saturday, 3/4 at Universal Power Yoga in Norwood, MA. She has also created an amazing vin/yin style workshop called Evenflow which she'll be teaching at She Breathes Wellness and Balance in Walpole, MA on 3/10 and 4/7 and back at UPY on 4/21. You can sign up for these workshops and see her regular class schedules at UPY and Stil Studio in Dedham, MA through each of the studio's websites. Lauren is also teaching an outdoor yoga class to benefit Smith Farm on 5/6 at the beautiful Borderland State Park in Sharon, MA. How cool is that?

You can follow Lauren to hear about more great events and classes via her facebook page and instagram feed.

Lauren chose this charming brick Breather space in Boston for her photo shoot which photographed absolutely perfectly for this session. We had a gorgeous sunny day so the light coming in through the windows was abundant and we definitely capitalized on that to capture lightness in both the more accessible and the more challenging poses. We then headed down to the waterfront to incorporate some of the iconic Boston harbor into our photo shoot. I can't wait to share a few previews today!
