This summer I photographed my first yoga shoot and I am in LOVE. Being a yoga lover myself, I was more than stoked for this session.
Yogi in training, entrepreneur, and one who inspires daily. She's also been one of my best girlfriends going on almost 10 years (since when did time start flying by). She has gone through pivotal times and made some major changes. Ali made the decision to quit her job started doing that would help her grow, you can read more about her here.
She has always been my gal pal who finds something to laugh about, which has been so uplifting throughout our friendship. So naturally, it wasn't difficult to get her laughing in front of the camera.
I often reflect how my career is so inspiring. My job is to capture people as they are. Whether it's people in love, people chasing their dreams, people having fun. It makes my heart happy to capture people who are enjoying all 3 of those things at once - choosing their path.
We met at one of my favorite places, Fisher Farm Park in Davidson. I selected this location for its wide open spaces and plenty of shaded areas (cause we were totally drenched by the end). After we wrapped up our shoot, we took advantage of some much needed girl time.
More Than Yoga
While Ali is working towards her teaching certification, you can find her networking and drinking beer at various breweries in Charlotte. We also meet up to co-work at different coffee shops all over the greater Charlotte area - if you ever want to join us boss babes, let us know!
