Cambridge, MA Yoga Photo Shoot {Barre & Soul Teacher Trainee Mini Sessions}

Lately, I have been thinking about how incredibly fortunate I am to have the energy that surrounds me in my work. From my amazing clients' infectious smiles and their calming and energizing natures, to the beautiful studios and breathtaking scenic Boston locations, and even to my light-filled home office and snuggly kitty, I am able to soak in so much love and so much positivity. I am truly thankful for this every day. Places like Barre & Soul Harvard Square energize me. They calm me. They leave me smiling ear to ear as I walk back to my car and commute home. I was able to work with their yoga teacher trainees earlier this week for a series of mini sessions and between the space and the people, I can't tell you how fortune I feel to be doing what I do. What an incredible group of women! I hope you enjoy these previews.

Congratulations to the teacher trainees on graduating from you 200 hour yoga teacher training program!

You can learn more about the yoga and barre teacher training offered at Barre & Soul, right here. And, for those asking about the gorgeous hair braid on the beautiful Catyn Piven (fuschia pants, infectious smile), she was styled by the super talented Amanda Andella.)

Boston, MA Yoga Photo Shoot in Beacon Hill and The Boston Commons {W/ Anna Saluti}

I am thrilled to share with you some previews from my yoga photo shoot with Anna Saluti earlier this week. Anna picked the gorgeous and always charming Beacon Hill and Boston Commons for her photo shoot backdrop to incorporate the feel of the city where she teaches. I always love a trip to the iconic Acorn Street so we started there and then made our way to the State House and into the Commons. We were lucky to see the Memorial Day Flag display and utilized it for some photographs before catching the most beautiful sunset reflections in the Swan Boat Pond. We finished the evening by the picturesque purple flower garden just as the sun was setting. The entire session was filled with Boston charm from the brick townhomes and their urban gardens to the buzz of people commuting through the commons and the whole energy of the evening, really.

If you're looking for a fun, powerful vinyasa class, with an emphasis on alignment, you can take a class with Anna at Karma Yoga Studio, Burn Fitness, C-Town.

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!

Boston, MA Yoga Photo Shoot in the Arboretum {Danae Laura}

I had such a great time working with Danae Laura at our fall yoga photo shoot in the Arboretum. The best part about shooting at the Arboretum is that the trees and scenery are constantly changing with the season so each session there is completely unique. For this session, Danae and I both immediately noticed the light coming through a group of trees that was just stunning. We started there and almost as if we had ESP, we both gravitated towards the same areas in the park. We utilized a gorgeous yellow tree that amazingly had not yet lost its leafs and some gorgeous green areas. At the end, Danae also spotted a low tree branch that looked as though it was made as a platform for some yoga poses. It was truly a stunning shoot. Take a peak!

Sharon / Easton, MA Yoga Photo Shoot at Borderland State Park {w/ Kathy Cohen}

I absolutely loved photographing the beautiful Kathy Cohen in early November. Kathy chose one of my personal favorite locations, Borderland State Park in Eason and Sharon. Kathy's kind spirit and genuine goodness comes through in every conversation I have ever had with her. And working with her showed this spirit as well. I absolutely loved capturing it. Take a look and make sure to check out her classes at Chakra Power Yoga in Braintree!

Boston, MA Yoga Photo Shoot in the Arboretum {Sheri Breen Yoga}

I absolutely loved photographing Sheri Breen in the Arboretum this October. Sheri brought with her a very cool combination of Prana Vinyasa, movement inspired by Shiva Rea, Yin, Restorative, and Kundalini Yoga. The Arboretum is one of my favorite locations to photograph because it is always changing with the seasons so no two photo sessions look the same. And this time of year, with the colors changing to such vibrant yellows and oranges, we really lucked out with a gorgeous background in all directions. I think she looks absolutely radiant! Take a look!

Milford, CT Beach Yoga Photo Shoot {Ashley Feehan Yoga}

It's almost surreal sitting here with my pumpkin spice tea all bundled up in flannel coziness while editing a photo shoot from less than three weeks ago where I was literally sitting in the warm ocean photographing the beautiful Ashley Feehan. How did the weather turn on us so quickly?

I absolutely loved working with Ashley because she is so kind and her smile is just infectious. She has such a positive and friendly demeanor that it felt more like hanging out with a good friend than a professional yoga photo shoot. When we started the shoot I hadn't imagined actually going into the ocean but we quickly found the beautiful sandbars to be just too inviting to pass up. The natural reflections in the water, the golden light, the seagulls and beach air made for the perfect scenic session. And while it's chilly, rainy and windy out as I type away, I hope these photographs can bring you some summer warmth. Enjoy!

Boston, MA Yoga Photo Shoot in the Arboretum {Morgan Furze Yoga}

I am so excited to share this preview with you of my yoga photo shoot with Morgan Furze. This past Monday was my first day back post heart surgery and I feel so lucky that it was with Morgan. This was my first time working with her and I have to say that her beautiful personality and constant smile made it such a great shoot to start back with. The air at the Arboretum was so refreshing. Although we've had many ninety degree days, Monday evening was just perfect and not too hot. We found some very cool blush colored flowering plants along with many beautiful greens. Morgan actually studies trees and forests at Harvard {along with teaching yoga there} so this setting was quiet apropos. She is also recently recovering from hip and wrist surgeries so this photo shoot was in part to celebrate her recovery. She was ready to rock out and capture both strong and simple poses. Take a look!

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.

Braintree, MA Yoga Photo Shoot w/ Nicole Burrill & Chakra Power Yoga

Shoot Date: September, 2014

Location: Chakra Power Yoga, Braintree, MA

I could not be more excited for my good friend Nicole Burrill on the opening of her studio, Chakra Power Yoga. Formerly Jai Yoga, Nicole revamped the space - including these new beautiful french doors per my photographic request ;) - she bought new props and hired an incredible staff of teachers. Here's just one quick preview before we shot the individual teachers for her website. Take a look!
