Yoga Photography Art Images Wild
This trip out to the Virginia Range was just as magical as the last except that I had some company, my dad and Sage and Wynter, my little wild horse assistants. The goal was to take more photos and expose my girls to the wonders of nature and the magic of wild horses. I went on a couple of solo missions searching the hills and driving aimlessly following their trails, manure piles and locating more watering holes. Finally, the horses started to appear. A couple horses I recognized from my last trip here which was exciting and emotional. The golden rule as a conservationist is to leave only footprints and never get too close to the horses for both their safety and ours. Well, that rule went out the window when one band of horses that we came across was uncannily friendly. The girls were taking photos when all of a sudden a sweet little yearling came up and found Sage and Wynter very interesting. I kept telling the girls to get out of the way and not to get too close. Moments later the horse was nuzzling up on them, sniffing their hair and just plain old loving up on them. These horses we found near a neighborhood and often times they get fed and exposed to humans thus taming them from fear of us. This is good and bad. It subjects them to hanging around the neighborhoods and all it takes is one cranky neighbor to call the stage Ag department or BLM and off they go into a round up and forever gone from their natural home. Enjoy the pictures and the beauty and the grace of these incredible souls. As always, Keep It Wild and please, do anything you can to help protect these animals. That means being aware of Federal and State laws, writing, emailing and calling our government officials asking them to protect the animals under the Federal 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Act, and opening up your own heart and soul to these magnificent animals.

Albert Einstein, one of my favorite people who not only is an Aries Pig like myself but, also a very wise and brilliant man. One day after I ripped my kids off the; computer, ipad, ipod, netflix, Wii, kindle etc they proclaim "I'm bored! What am I supposed to do?". I happened to remember a Xmas present I forgot about stashed in the closet so no one including myself would ever find it. Two sketch pads and pastels. I give them the belated gift and they are pretty excited. "But what are we supposed to draw?" they asked. I said, "Use your imagination, go outside and start with nature." So off they go and over the next week or so this is what they brought back... Wow! Sage my 7 year old wanted to know if it qualified for my website and if I would share her art. Wynter my 5 year old drew some amazing pieces as well. These children, all children have so much sweet soul. XXXOOO
Sage age 7

Horses are sensitive and they know when you're holding. This is what happens when you lay down in the pasture with cookies in your pocket in an attempt to get some artistic photographs. Lap horse.
Took some photos for Hawthorn Boutique and guess who showed up? That's right, Ganesha and Buddha. What luck! They posed as beautiful models. If you have not already been shopping for yourself or a loved one stop by and check out Hawthorn. Super cute clothes, jewelry, bags, belts and everything you need to get styled.
What would you do if a world famous photographer landed in your yoga class and wanted to take some shots? Would you step up your game a little bit? Give it your heart and soul? These yogis did. In an effort to evolve our collections I/we imposed upon Hillary's class. Hillary did her usual ass kicker and I rolled around on the floor capturing the incredible light and energy of this awesome class of yogis. Never disappointed shooting yogi's. We are a special breed...
Watch out!! You might be next.

Hillary and I have decided to step out of our comfort zone of practiced yogis and into the superficial zone of Hot Bods and the idea that yoga is for everyone; especially athletes, weight lifters, beer drinkers, golfers, seniors etc. As luck would have it, we stumbled upon some seriously hot bods on Saturday's mission. It did get hot and everyone took their clothes off (except the photographers)! I must say, it certainly pays to go out on a limb and see what the universe throws at you. It might just be a bunch of hot, over tan, oiled up bodies. What fun!
It's hard to stay focused sometimes but Hillary does a great job moving hot muscle into a couple of awesome yoga postures.
You want some of this? C'mon!!!! Bring it!
