YOGA PORTRAITURE

Yoga is a demanding pursuit with long-term benefits for body and mind. Dramatic results reveal themselves over time.
As a yoga teacher, I have an understanding of poses and posture and will work with you to produce photographs which celebrate all you have achieved through your practice.

Before your shoot, I will help you to pick a location, a look or theme, and help you
decide which poses best tell your story.

Your yoga practice is something to be proud of. Enjoy the results of your dedication with professional images.

A Shooting Session

Before we begin to shoot, we’ll meet with you to discuss ideas, location and wardrobe. We will scout the proposed location and decide how and when to proceed. We will take the time to develop a shot list and we will improvise during the session. Our shoots typically last up to three hours - which helps alleviate any pressure and allows for greater creativity. When we are done we will schedule an editing session to select the photos you would like to see developed to perfection (more from our Watch Hill shoot).

I work with photographer Dean Pagani, who created all the images for this website. We will deliver up to ten (10) finished images, in a digital format, for your personal and permanent use (there is no restrictive licensing), and one matted print of approximately 13” x 10”. Additional images and prints can be ordered separately. Planning, the shooting session, photo editing, and printing take approximately one month to complete at a cost of $499, plus applicable sales tax.

The Confidence Project

All photos for this project were shot on location using natural light. See our full photo essay explaining how a consistent yoga practice builds self confidence.

The Natural Cure Shoot

We call this style of photography “yoga portraiture,” because at times it is not about the pose, it is about how yoga manifests itself in your inner and outer self. As you will see in this essay, at times the most telling photographs are not traditional poses at all.
