When Kelly inquired about my background, I divulged about how yoga changed my life. When I was introduced to the practice, my eyes were opened to the immense depth and spiritual side. I went from student to trainer quickly! 

This part of my life was – and continues to be – hugely transformational and impacted my worldview.  It caused me to question my career and I knew it was time to make changes and work for myself! I dedicated myself to being a full-time wedding photographer. This was wonderful, but the COVID-19 pandemic put a pretty big lurch into things. So, I turned to boudoir images after following & listening to my values. 

Best. Decision. Ever!

Yoga isn’t just about striking poses – it’s deeply intertwined with neuroscience, tapping into the intricate pathways of our brains. Ancient yogic scholars and modern neuroscientists agree that our minds are malleable, and we can reshape them. By practicing mindfulness, we can transform our thoughts from negative to positive.

I’ve continued with this for years and built on these foundations, combining mindfulness & connection through yoga and infusing this into my photoshoots! The shoots I do are more than just a sexy shoot, but will help re-orient yourself with yourself! I love seeing this transformation happen right in front of my eyes. 

Mindfulness Is the Key 

I then shared with Kelly about how my body used to feel like a foreign entity, something I kind of just inhabited, without truly understanding.

It wasn’t that I harbored negative feelings toward my body — it was more like I had no relationship with it whatsoever. I simply existed in it, using it without much thought or care, unless I injured myself.

What brought me home to myself was mindfulness, which helped me recognize and appreciate all my body does for me. It wasn’t about loving how I looked all the time, but embracing body neutrality and appreciating my body for its functionality & resilience. Through this, I learned to value my body in a whole new way. We’re friends now and I’m kind to it! Im always evolving & learning. 

Mindfulness is all about tuning in to your feelings & sensations, both physical & emotional, without any harsh judgments, just accepting whatever you’re experiencing without labeling it as good or bad.

You’re simply observing what’s happening inside you without jumping to conclusions or criticizing yourself. It’s like giving yourself a big, comforting hug and saying, “Hey, it’s okay to feel whatever I’m feeling right now.” 

Focusing on the good brings more good! The grass will grow where it is watered, appreciated, and heard. 

Through mindfulness comes clarity, a chance to finally break free from the cycle of self-criticism so we can channel that energy into positive growth and self-improvement instead! 

The Body Deck 

One way to build these positive thoughts is through affirmations. This is why I started another project, with my business partner, Melissa. We make affirmations cards called The Body Deck that infuse mindfulness & helping getting rid of that nasty inner critic through positive reinforcement. We used boudoir photos I shot, to showcase diverse beauty.
