“Yoga means addition – addition of energy, strength and beauty to body, mind and soul.” – Amit Ray
Meet Dawn! Dawn is a yoga teacher and business coach for other yoga professionals. Dawn got in touch with me as she wanted to launch the coaching side of her business and needed some beautiful images to accompany her marketing.
Dawn helps her clients to get clear on their business and life goals, to put great business systems in place for productive working, as well as growing their businesses in a way that serves them energetically and financially as they step into the shoes of the yoga teacher they’ve always wanted to be.
“When mentoring and coaching, I speak to really great yoga teachers all the time who are struggling with getting enough students, setting prices, time-management, organisation, marketing, earning enough money, having enough energy (and the list could go on and on). As a full time yoga teacher, I totally get you. Over the years I have “been there, done that”, and learnt both from my mistakes and my successes in what works to create an abundant yoga business. I can help you with the things that only someone who is “in it” can fully understand.”
Dawn and I enjoyed a sunny September day together (one of my favourite times of year to shoot!) as we created beautiful images that celebrated her love of yoga, of peace and tranquility, of getting out and enjoying nature, and of giggling over green smoothies. Here’s what Dawn had to say about her experience of working with me…
“Before working with Karina I had a very clear image of what I wanted from the photo-shoot - but had no idea how to explain what was in my head to anyone else! Karina was very thorough before the photo shoot day, with a planning call, questionnaire, vision board and great advice on how to choose what to wear (the biggest worry I had beforehand). She took my answers to find the perfect locations for our day together, and to create the feel and image I was looking for. Karina puts you at ease from the outset. She is warm, approachable, and totally professional. I was delighted with the results when I saw the finished photos. Karina had taken exactly the images that I had in my head, but never thought I could really achieve.”
It was such a pleasure working with Dawn to create beautiful images for her business. See more from her shoot below:
