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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

Walpole, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Bird Park {Humble Warrior Yoga Mini Sessions}

I had a great time working with the team of teachers from Humble Warrior Yoga last week for their yoga mini sessions. We met at the gorgeous Bird Park in Walpole, MA to capture their sessions and I am excited to share some previews with you today. A big thanks to Ashley Brayden, Marie Maloney, Julie Atwood, Kerrie Baldwin, Debbie Carty and her daughter, Julie Elpus and her daughter, Paula Leeds, and Catherine Dunphy for a great shoot!

While I am sad to share the news that Humble Warrior Yoga is closing on June 11th, I know that we will see these beautiful teachers out in the community, teaching around the greater Boston area.
