Behind the Scenes

By far one of my favorite jobs ever has been assisting Christine Hewitt of Yogic Photos during her asana portrait sessions. She was kind enough to share some of the shots she took while I was at work:

A crisp, clean shot is all about the little details. Acting as wardrobe for the lovely Elena in Natarajasana.

We drop back with a little help from our friends: helping in urdhva dhanurasana.

Sometimes we decide it’s a good idea for Laila to try bakasana on a cannon. In these cases I’ll be there, just out of frame, to make sure the she doesn’t tumble down (she didn’t and it was a gorgeous shot).
