Lehigh County Photographer: Dina {and her bump}

I've known Dina for a few years now and have had the pleasure of photographing her family, her sweet little girl and have enjoyed doing pictures for her business, too. Through the years, I've learned and known that she's a very skilled practicer of yoga. It's something I've always admired about her. So when she asked to add on a second maternity session of just her in her practice near the end of her pregnancy, I was giddy. She wanted to embrace this strength, to honor it and to really remember it. I don't know about you, but I've tried yoga. It's hard. Like, really hard. If you've never tried it, I simply challenge you to attempt a warrior three. That's it. It's a standard pose, looks simple. Just try it. Perfect form, heart center. Hold it for 3 breaths, THEN come back to this blog and scroll through these pictures. You'll have a different appreciation.

Dina and I chose to allow her to go through her normal practice and I'd simply follow her and capture her as she did her thing. Her grace, strength and breath blew me away. It just blew me away. This woman is amazing. It was so empowering to be in this space with her and to be with her even keeled, calm spirit as she practiced this art. I have chills as I type this!

Dina, you're inspiring. Thank you for allowing me to have this experience with you and to share it with others. I can't wait to meet that little baby girl!
