It is to me noteworthy when you meet someone for a shoot revolving around an activity that represents a piece of who they are and can tell within moments that they are synonymous with their art, this is who they are from top to bottom. The smile you see was perpetual throughout our time on this brief session. The energy expelled was nothing short of positive.
More than ever we need forward moving people who cast uplifting energy into the air and Leah to my eyes seems to walk on clouds of it.
For this shoot I again utilized a mixture of natural light as well brought in artificial flash to
A) Overcome some of the deep shade in the parks wooden canopy.
B) Have creative control with the flash intending it to be always angled downward towards Leah as I wanted her embrace to reach for the gold hue and for that light to feel like it was as well drawn to her. Make no mistake this was a symbiotic relationship between them.
Forest leaves were drawn into the foreground to compliment and bring in balance the calm spiritual side of Leah's practice of Yoga.
I hope these images begin to portray at least some of the Serenity that seemingly is generated by Leah.
To follow her work she can be found on Instagram @leelee2101 and to schedule a yoga session with her to help you find your own Serenity @corefitllc.
