2009 Tranquil Space Foundation Gala

The 2009 Tranquil Space Foundation Gala was a lovely time again this year and I had such fun photographing it. The Gala was held in the art infused law firm Steptoe & Johnson and included fun presentations, door prizes, raffle tickets (including some box seat Caps tix that I had my fingers and toes crossed about winning) and lovely auction items (I'll use this opportunity to send a warm hello to the winner of the Mannix Photography photo session - can't wait to photograph your daughter!).

I have to extend support to this year's TSF grantee, Nest, which is a nonprofit aimed at supporting women artists and artisans in the developing world through helping them create sustainable entrepreneurial businesses. Photographing the gala didn't leave me a lot of time to work in shopping, but I think I'll help Nest support artists this year through some mindful holiday shopping. Check out the Nest website to see what cool things are offered by these women artists.

Getting to photograph causes I'm passionate about and people I love to spend time with is a blessing in my life for which I am incredibly grateful. I've included some images below. If you didn't make it this year, come out and support next year. Enjoy!

We took a unplanned quick trip to Trinidad this week. Here are just a few photos of the island life to share with all of you.

Yes, that is my Mohawk mango and, yes, it was oh so yummy!

Yoga Photography

Recently I have been having a wonderful time photographing fabulous (and glamorous!) yoginis. It's been tons of fun figuring out the perfect angles and accessories to create these fun and unique images of their yoga practice.

My yoginis are truly amazing women. Not only are they able to do incredible things with their bodies, but they are also fun and impressive people both inside and out. While the fusion of yoga and glamour in our images is perhaps non-traditional, the convergence of wonderful traits within these ladies is a fine example of yoga at it fullest. You ladies are a blast and I'm honored to have photographed you!

I'm also super excited for the upcoming yoga photo sessions I have with several wonderful yoga teachers. It will be an honor to capture each of your 23 wonderful, unique and amazing selves. Thank you all for sharing your practice with me. Enjoy the photos!
