A BIG Thank You! Headshot Portrait Fundraising Event for the Kyrie Foundation – Post-Event Wrap.

Last Friday we hosted a fundraiser at the studio, taking head shot images of participants, with 100% of session fees going towards the Kyrie Foundation. We had a great turnout of generous folks and we had a really great time. It was so much fun to photograph and to raise funds for such a great cause.   I’d like to give an extra big thank you to my hair and makeup artist, Karinna Wurth, who donated her time and talents to give some extra pampering to those who wanted it. We know how to live it up over here!  Our event raised over $300, which is a very small drop in the big bucket of need, but it is definitely a step in the right direction. Along with raising dollars, my goal is to raise awareness of pediatric brain cancer and for the Kyrie Foundation, and their fight to find preventions and a cure.

Meet Leslie – Yogini, chantress and opera-lover | Moden Glamour Makeover Portrait Session in Evergreen, Colorado

  Leslie Wagner came to my studio last August. We did a makeover glamour session as well as some yoga asana shots for her website. Leslie is a yoga teacher, mother of two sons, former tennis player and all-around super-cool lady. She was kind enough to be the first person I’m interviewing for my blog. Possibly the first person I’ve interviewed, ever. Thanks Leslie! One of Leslie’s earliest memories is of laying in her crib, listening to her mother sing. She herself loves to sing, is an opera fan (surprised?), and has an amazing voice. If you’ve ever joined Leslie for one of her yoga classes, you know what I mean. Her sanskrit chants resonate with depth, meaning and beauty. I jokingly call her Sunday morning class “Leslie-Church” because she is so good at awakening my spiritual side and creates a space of reverence for all the gifts of life.Leslie has been teaching and studying yoga for 35 years and is also a lover of the Sanskrit chants she is a truly gifted chantress. She views teaching as a means to help raise consciousness and to transmit light energy to her students. She believes a teacher is to live as an example, to ‘walk the talk’ and to use moderation in all things. Teaching yoga is not like teaching math or reading, it is more about raising awareness, connecting to people, helping them feel loved and noticed. As a yoga instructor, she’s also put in a place of trust-keeping and as an unofficial therapist. People find that they can really share and open up to her as she is someone who helps to open...
