There is a fine line between yoga and photography. Photography captures an instant of a moment whereas yoga is a journey of a lifetime.
I aim to photograph people in poses that are only in their personal practice and represent where they are on the yoga path. It’s not necessarily all about fancy shapes that you can make with your body, but what you feel in this moment.
I want to dispel the idea that people only do yoga to look good in photographs and to get a lot of likes. That’s not always true.
A yoga photo session with me is definitely filled with more laughter than you would probably experience in your self practice at home, but it also captures those quiet in between moments where you’re completely in tune with your body and your mind.
– to capture a series of photographs that is authentic to your personal practice.
Having said that though, it’s always fun to play around in yoga. To try new things and put our bodies into fun shapes for the sake of it. Yoga isn’t all serious. Just make sure it’s safe.
What normally happens at a yoga photo session?
I’ll typically ask you to start off with some sun salutes to get your body warmed up and you more comfortable in front of the camera. From there we can go several different ways. You can continue with a self practice, where I simply act as a witness, or we can do specific poses you’d like photographed.

I photograph yoga teachers and students alike. I photograph beginners and advanced practitioners.

I’m your photographer.
