When Jessica, owner of Root: Center for Yoga & Sacred Studies, approached me about doing portraits to complement the book she’s been working on about her yoga practice, she was careful to explain that she didn’t want the same old “doing yoga in the woods” photos, she wanted something more evocative. The images she had in mind had more to do with the emotions and philosophy of her practice, and she and I spent quite a bit of time brainstorming wardrobe, styling and locations so we could accomplish what she wanted. We actually took these in April (I’m a little behind on sharing them, having spent most of my summer and fall working on weddings). I think these images are beautiful! We were both very happy with the results and will be continuing her project with another photo shoot soon!
