Dedham, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at MIT Endicott House w/ Rachel Books Smoller

Hi, everyone! Look at that .. I’m back! :) I’ve spent the bulk of 2019 loving up every minute with my son and now I’m ready to return to shooting just in time for the end of this hot, hot summer, and my favorite season to photograph in, the fall. And to kick it all off, none other than the radiant Rachel Books Smoller . We combo-ed a yoga and family session to bring you some beautiful images of Rachel with her family, including another little one on the way! Rachel is a phenomenal prenatal yoga teacher. She personally got me through my pregnancy so I can highly recommend her if you or anyone you know is expecting and looking for a wonderful yoga teacher and community. But, she doesn’t just teach prenatal! You can find out more about her on her website, and check out her classes at Universal Power Yoga and Yoga Works.

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.

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!

How lovely to wrap up my outdoor yoga photo shoots for the year with this incredible group of yoga teacher trainees from Universal Power Yoga in Norwood, MA!

Yoga Teacher Training was one of the most profound experiences of my life so it's really special for me to be able to work with so many new teachers, just graduating, just having gone through something so life changing.

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!

Walpole, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Bird Park {Universal Power Yoga Teacher Training Mini Sessions! Round 2!}

I am so excited that I was able to work with the teacher training group at Universal Power Yoga again for mini sessions. We held the mini sessions at the beautiful Bird Park, in Walpole, MA and mainly utilized the gorgeous stone steps as our backdrop for the majority of the images. You may remember we photographed the first group of UPY teacher trainees at this same location last fall but with quite a difference look given the New England foliage at the time. It always amazes me how unique each set of images truly is, even when at the same location.

Without further ado, here are some previews of these rockstar yogis!

Walpole, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Bird Park {Universal Power Yoga Teacher Trainee Mini Sessions}

I had a blast photographing the first group of yoga teacher trainees from Universal Power Yoga in Norwood, MA. I have absolutely loved partnering with Jen Merola Palmer, owner of UPY, for the last two years, photographing her grand opening celebration, one and two year anniversary events as well as her teachers and now her teacher trainees! She has created such a fun, warm, supportive community and I love being a part of it!

A huge congratulations to all of UPY's inaugural teacher trainees! I am so happy I've been able to get to know many of you and work with you all. I can't wait to see where this path takes you next!

Enjoy some previews!
