boise fitness photographer: debbi
I met Debbi a year ago when I photographed the ambassadors for Boise’s local Lululemon Showroom. I was so impressed with her vibrancy and gentleness during that session and then I had the pleasure of meeting her again at a fundraising event for TRICA. It was four hours of yoga and dance and was, probably one of the best Friday nights I had spent in Boise! Her portion of the yoga instruction was Disco Yoga! It was SO fun!!! She came out donned in her finest 70s yoga gear and we all boogied yogi style! Needless to say, I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her for her own personal use. She is a yoga instructor here in Boise at Sage Yoga and is also the owner of Shanti Yoga in McCall.
She wants the photographs for her marketing material, but it is my hope this finds a place somewhere on her wall. She has a beauty and kindness that just radiates from within.
I love these pants! And I love that she wears them so well! After our session as I was getting into my car I saw her walking down the street in these pants and a cute pair of sneakers and sweater and I thought, “this lady’s got style!” Would you believe she is 60 years old? I HAD to ask and I was also curious when she started yoga. She’s been practicing for 20 years…which means she started at 40…which means there is still hope for me. Although, I doubt I’d ever be able to pull off wearing those pants the way she does.
Every ten years Debbi gets a new tattoo. She’s about to get her next one and wanted me to try to get a shot of the one she has on her hip.
I hope that when I am her age I live my life with as much vitality and grace. Knowing her inspires me to start now…why wait, right? Thank you Debbi. I am looking forward to working with you again in your studio in McCall!
