The Blog

As is typical at this time of year, I am woefully behind on my blog posts. I always seem to cruise merrily along until October — the month wedding photographers fear most, when editing and emails and orders and holiday shoots start to pile up, the work days extend into the wee hours, and our families avoid us because…

There are a great number of wonderful things I could say about this family: How funny Jen is, how cute Emma’s freckles are, how I remember laughing and chatting at the bus stop with Taylor and Bryan when the kids were little, and how one year at their Cinco de Mayo party I stepped backwards…

There’s a technique that my Yin teacher uses to help us wage gentle battle against the aches and pains that arise while holding postures for a particularly long time. She urges us to use ujjayi breathing to “wash the area with fresh prana” —…
