6am Yoga // Portrait Session // Park Ridge, IL

Somehow I had the amazing fortune to meet this wonderful, big-hearted Yogi here in my local town of Des Plaines. And when she reached out to me to do an earthy, love-soaked yoga session, I was overjoyed to be a part of this next chapter in her life as she begins her journey as a yoga teacher. Susie is truly a lovely person that walks the walk when it comes to being a yoga instructor. She's kind, patient, real, open-minded, strong, knowledgable and embracing...and those are just the traits I know of at this point. I feel like we captured her spirit in this shoot. (Plus, I was super excited she was up for an EARLY morning to get some gentle light in pretty Park Ridge, IL.)
