Brookline, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Larz Anderson {w/ Jacqui Bonwell 500 Hour Teacher Trainees}

I can hardly believe that I just finished up my last photo shoot before maternity leave. For the last several years, the spring and summer months have been the start of a beautiful outdoor season and my favorite, yet to come, is the fall. But alas, growing a little baby has been an amazing and humbling experience and my 38 week pregnant body is telling me it's time to lay low and rest before the arrival of our little guy.

It was such an honor to work with this group of yoga teachers from Jacqui Bonwell's most recent 500-hour yoga teacher training. Mini sessions are, well, mini in nature, but in working with these women for just a few moments each, I could tell instantly what beautiful souls they each are. A huge thanks to Jori, Rachel, Kristen, Pam and Erin, for braving two storms and patiently waiting for a beautiful summer day to come along.

These sessions were shot at Larz Anderson Park in Brookline, MA. Enjoy!

Contact me today if you're interested in setting up a yoga photo shoot. While I am pausing shooting for my maternity leave, I expect to have limited availability in the fall and winter and to return to shooting full time in the spring. If you'd like to be added to my wait-list, please do be in touch asap as it will be prioritized on a first-contacted, first-served basis. Please pardon slower than usual response times during the next few months.

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.

Brookline, MA Yoga Photo Shoot {w/ Chakra Power Yoga Teacher Trainees}

When Nicole Burrill, owner of Chakra Power Yoga in Braintree, MA, told me she was going to run a 200-hour yoga teacher training at her studio, I was instantly jealous. I completed my teacher training in 2011 but had my schedule allowed, I would have signed up to take it again with her. Nicole and I have been friends since we first connected in a yoga class at Beacon Hill Athletic Clubs I don't even remember how long ago. {7 years, maybe? Nicole?} It was before either of us had take teacher training, before either of us even knew we wanted to really. We connected in the way two best friends do though, instantly and as if we had known each other always. I am so incredibly grateful that our paths crossed when they did, that we bonded so quickly and that I am able to call her my friend and my teacher. I am beyond words, teary-eyed excited that she put together this incredible training and that I was able to photograph this group of kick-asana {too cheesy?} instructors for mini sessions last month. And, even more exciting, you ask? Nicole is launching her second studio, Chakra Power Waltham, June 1st! So please go give her studios a like of facebook {Chakra Power Yoga Braintree + Chakra Power Yoga Waltham} and sign up for her newsletter so that you can learn all about her studio happenings. I hope to see you there!

Brookline, MA Yoga Photo Shoot w/ Sarah Winslow at the Larz Anderson Park

Sarah is simply a joy to photograph. She is so much fun and you can tell right from the first minute talking to her that she is a kind soul. Her niece Abbie joined us and helped get smiles at just the right moments. Despite the chilly weather, I loved every minute of this shoot.
