one of my favorite things is capturing people in their element. there is something so intoxicating and beautifully intimate capturing people in a heat of passion, fire, and doing what they love. the ladies of true north cycle invited me to spend the afternoon and take photos for them. i absolutely jumped with gratitude to be thought of - one reason, i had never actually stepped foot inside of an indoor cycling studio. in fact, it intimated me. i have many friends that LOVE indoor cycling and they've been trying to coax this yogi into gettin' down on it for months (okay, a couple of years!) and i've always replied, "someday, maybe."
well, i can officially say that after spending a couple hours with the true north babes, they've reeled me in! their energy, focus, love, and fire was contagious! imagine a group of ladies, dancing, singing, high-fiving, cheers-ing, empowering, lifting, and loving each other - that's how we spent last saturday! i found myself dancing and singing right along side doing my best to capture their spirit. one of the things i request from shoots is, "be yourself, move, shake, sing, and do YOUR thing! it's my job to capture your beauty as you are - which is magnetic in the moment."
we did just that. these ladies did their THANG! i hadn't had so much fun on a photo shoot in a long time.
i found myself saying, "this is what yoga needs! this passion, fire, and energy! these ladies are living from their soul! i am going to borrow some of what these ladies are dishing out to bring forth some of that heat and love into my yoga classes!"
if you are in northern california (sacramento, folsom, el dorado hills, granite bay, roseville, and beyond), grab your gals and guy friends and put some fun between your legs at true north cycling. a ride of life and into the soul.
