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/ Anna Plotnikova}

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing the beautiful Anna Plotnikova at one of my favorite locations, The Arnold Arboretum. Anna and I actually shot there together just last year - you can see previews from our first yoga photo shoot on the blog. And because we both loved it so much, we decided to come back for this year's session. One thing I love about this location is that even though we were in some of the exact same areas, we were able to capture a totally new perspective as the seasons change and each day's light provides something unique to photograph. The recent rain had saturated the grass and plants so much that we were able to capture some really gorgeous, deep greens, and the overcast sky gave us a nice, even light for our session.

As you'll be able to tell from any of her photographs, Anna is an absolute joy to photograph, always smiling and cheerful. Her positive energy is infectious. And while I have to admit, at 33 weeks pregnant, I was feeling pretty tired before our session. After spending an hour together though, I was full of energy and left with such a big smile and heart full of gratitude.

You can catch Anna teaching in Boston at Health Yoga Life and make sure to follow her on Instagram for more!

And now, enjoy some previews from our session!

Milton, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Houghton's Pond {W/ Melissa Dixey}

I know what you're thinking ... well, Amanda Dixey's yoga photo shoot, featured in my earlier blog post today, looks pretty similar to this one here. That's because Amanda brought her sister Melissa to Houghton's Pond with us to capture some yoga photographs as well. It was so much fun to work with these beautiful sisters and capture some images for their new journey as yoga teachers.

Amanda and Melissa both graduated from Barefoot Yoga Shala's 200 hour yoga teacher training in May. Here's a huge congratulations to them, and some previews below for you to enjoy!

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

Last week I had the pleasure of photographing a dedicated yogi to capture images of her favorite poses in the beautiful Arnold Arboretum. Maria and I utilized the gardens that have recently come into bloom, the green ivy backdrop as well as agravel path that always looks so ethereal to me. And let me tell you, she was rocking arm balances and inversions all night long. It was a lot of fun to capture! I am so excited to share a handful of previews with you all today.

Milton, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Houghton's Pond {W/ Alicia Garino}

I could not be more excited to share previews from my most recent yoga photo shoot at Houghton's Pond in Milton, MA, with the gorgeous Alicia Garino. Alicia will soon be graduating from Jacqui Bonwell's 500 hour teacher training and is already serving our community teaching prenatal and post-natal yoga at Om Births in Watertown, MA. Alicia has such a beautiful energy that is both calming and joyous at the same time. I loved photographing her and can't wait to see all of the ways she moves forward teaching to this population of yogi mamas.

Stay tuned here as well as to my facebook and instagram to learn more about Alicia including where to find her teaching next!

Walpole, MA Yoga Photo Shoot At Bird Park {w/ Ashley Brayden and Marie Maloney}

Last month I had the pleasure of photographing the teaching staff of Humble Warrior Yoga at Bird Park in Walpole, MA for yoga mini sessions and was lucky enough to meet up ahead of time with two of their teachers for extended sessions. I wanted to give a shout out to Ashley and Marie and share some previews from our extended sessions at Bird Park! Needless to say, we had a blast!

You can follow these lovely ladies online to learn more about their yoga classes and schedules: click through to Ashley Brayden on Instagram and Marie Maloney on Facebook.

While I am sad to share the news that Humble Warrior Yoga has closed, I know that we will see these beautiful teachers out in the community, teaching around the greater Boston area.
