In the cold winter months in Minnesota, there’s nothing more exciting than a few rays of sunshine coming in through the window. I began to think about a new set of images for my portfolio that were warm and bright, and decided that a yoga class would be perfect to capture the renewed healthy lifestyle that many embrace to welcome spring. The goal of the shoot was to capture the quiet movements of yoga, and the joy being active as a group.
Producer, Bobbi Peacock, found a beautiful space for the shoot, and helped pull together a fabulous crew. We spent an enjoyable afternoon in a sun-filled Minneapolis loft. One our models, Tyler, also works as a yoga instructor, and made the time pass as just one smooth class, transitioning from pose to pose and assisting our models into proper form. Afterward, I spent some time capturing conversation among the models, highlighting the levity in spirit that naturally follows a yoga session. I greatly appreciate the time and talent brought to this project by our crew, and I am pleased to add these images to my portfolio.
