Be still my heart! If there is such thing as sunshine on the internet, this is a close as it gets folks. I had the honor of photographing Krista for some updated headshots and yoga photos for her website that is in the works. Krista is an accomplished vocal performer, yoga instructor and all around grounded and wonderful person. We went to college together, and it's always great to see how people who majored in the performing arts in college are incorporating their craft into the "working world" almost ten years after graduating. Freelancing has its challenges and perks, but everyone I know who is practicing their art has additional jobs to support themselves. For some (myself included) that supporting gig becomes a very important part of the journey where the practice informs their original training and vice versa. Krista has made quite a name for herself in the Yoga community and has found a way to meld two loves into a beautiful life. For this shoot, we wanted to incorporate some of Krista's many loves into photographs for her to share on her site. Since she loves spending time outdoors, we had to find a beautifully simple outdoor space to take photos of her practicing yoga. Her dog Askel joined in on the fun and I just LOVE the images of the two of them together. For the second part of the shoot we went to our studio in Lowertown where we took some more traditional head shots as well as some fun ones on her bike (her preferred method of transportation). This was such a fun shoot and it was an honor to spend time with such a vibrant person. Thank you for allowing me to capture your beautiful self, Krista! So many good things are in store for you.
