#YogaMama Series with Kristin

I recently did a collaboration with my yogi friend Kristin Niemi. We did a few shoots together; in the first one she was 31 weeks pregnant and in the following one she had a two week old. We tried to recreate some of the photos from the first shoot with little baby Parker in place of her baby bump in the second shoot.

I knew we would need help handling a newborn in addition to everything else with the shoot so I asked my maternity/newborn/family photographer friend, Sarah Hinchey, to help us out. We couldn't have done it without her; she was a true baby whisperer!


Not all of the poses were exactly the same; we were being as gentle as possible with Kristin and what she was comfortable for her was our first priority. I still love seeing the photos side by side! What do you think?

Coming soon - Kristin before-and-after with a 4 month old!

"Women in Fitness" Art Show at Be Well Studios

For the rest of January and the entire month of February this year, I have a photography show up at Be Well Studios in Scituate. Be Well is an awesome fitness and wellness space right on Scituate Harbor and they host local artists on a regular basis. I was thrilled when they asked me to be the first artist on display for 2017.

#Instagram Round-up: January 2016

I love how 2016 started out. I had a quiet month compared to December so I was able to take some time, regroup, look back at the past year and start making plans for the new one. I also had some fun revisiting shoots from the fall and sharing some favorite shots to instagram. I am so lucky to work with so many amazing people!

Cheers to 2016 and all that it brings. What are you looking forward to this year?

#Instagram Round-up: October 2015

So many awesome shoots this month mixed in with some family travel (a cousin wedding in Indiana) and of course a beagle photo or two. After the bad weather earlier in the month cleared up, October turned out to be pretty gorgeous! So far, November has been pretty stunning as well. Knock on wood, we're all enjoying it while it lasts...

Save the Date - July 31st - #SummerPopupShoot at the Arboretum

We had so much fun last time we're doing it again - another summer pop-up photo shoot, this time at the Arboretum in Jamaica Plain! This is one of my favorite places to shoot in Boston; it's quiet, serene, and so full of natural beauty all year round. When you're there, it's hard to believe you're actually in the middle of the city. I could shoot there all day! If you've been there, you know what I mean. If you haven't, you will love it, I promise.

Ready for more details and/or to sign-up?! Yay! We've got a few slots left so visit our website:

Yoga and Dance Photography in Boston: Erica Bornstein


I started a wish list on Pinterest of yoga poses I thought were cool and would love to shoot someday. Without even knowing this, yoga and Zumba instructor Erica (who teaches at Sweat & Soul Yoga, Back Bay Yoga, and Soul.Train) showed up to our shoot and nailed most of them! This girl has some serious skills, both on a yoga mat and in the dance studio:

  Thanks again Erica, you were a pleasure to work with!!!

Yoga Photography: Jacqui

I was so happy when Jacqui said she wanted to do our yoga shoot at the Arnold Arboretum, one of my favorite places since childhood AND just an overall fantastic place to for photos. Jacqui is a yoga and Pilates instructor and she was very interested in a shoot that had a nature element to it. The arbs was the perfect place and we agreed that shooting in the evening was the perfect time: 
Thanks again Jacqui!

Yoga Photography: Jessica

Meet Jess! Jess is a yoga instructor (with a serious interest in fashion!). When she hired stylist Keely Witkoski to help create a look for our shoot and Keely took one look at her closet, she knew fashion had to be incorporated into the yoga theme. Here's what we created with this in mind:






Such a fun shoot! Thanks again Jess!

Putting Photos to Work

I thought it might be interesting to do a post on some of the ways my clients are using the images we create together. Generally they are looking for photos for marketing purposes- websites, flyers, postcards, blogs, Facebook fan pages, etc. Here are a few examples of how some of the photos are getting put to work!

Last fall I did a shoot for activewear company, DA Active. This is a preview of their Fall 2013 line which they showed at the Surf Expo in Orlando, FL.

 Pilates guru, Jennifer Phelan, used the images to advertise Pilates events she was teaching around the city, including one sponsored by Zico Coconut Water.

 Websites! Most of my clients are looking for quality photos for their websites and here are a few examples! From top left: www.alibaldassare.com, www.laurastevensonpilates.com, www.jeannieyoga.com, www.jenniferphelan.com.

A little inspiration can go a long way. Lauren of Sweat with Lauren Hefez used this photo and quote to inspire her followers on instagram.

Pilates Photography: Sarah Ruback of Sync Pilates Studio


Meet Sarah Ruback. Sarah owns a classical Pilates studio in Brookline called Sync Pilates and needed some photos for her website. We decided the best way to show off her Pilates skills and personality would be to do a shoot in a big bright studio just filled with light. My wonderful friend and mentor, Jim Scherer, was kind enough to loan us his space which was perfect for executing our vision. With the help of stylist Keely Witkowski of B. Fetching, the shoot was a big success. I love working with such a talented team! :)

In the Studio: Yoga Photography with Jeannie


When Wellseley-based yoga teacher Jeannie Goldstone contacted me about photos for her new website, I couldn't wait to get her in the studio. She was looking for simple, clean, black and white photos of yoga poses which I love to shoot. Jeannie only wanted to do poses that her potential clients wouldn't find too "intimidating" and here are a few of my favs-
