When we last left our newlywed couple, Julia and Troy said “I Do” and they became Mr. and Mrs. Quick.  For several hours after, family and friends danced, ate, drank and danced some more.  All were blissfully happy as they celebrated the big day!

The father-daughter dance was an especially touching moment.  Julia and her father have long had a strong bond.  Tears ran down her father’s cheek as he showed such pride and joy in the woman Julia has become.

Yoga Backbend at Sunrise


Backbend at Sunrise by Chip Bunnell Photography

I learned long ago an important truth: Each new sunrise brings new opportunities and possibilities.  Often, these opportunities come as a joyful surprise.  On a particularly gray morning in March, this was once again proven through the lens of my camera.

The sky was covered with thick, low clouds; a heavy fog blanketed the beach.  I ventured into the pre-dawn darkness, in hopes of capturing a moody image of a commercial fishing pier.  Even though I have photographed this location countless times, I had a new image in mind.  As I ventured to the beach, I made my previously-visioned images, moving from side to side under the massive structure.  It was then I noticed a new and unexpected sight – a beautiful woman performing a variety of yoga poses in the early morning light.  After introducing myself, I asked if I could make some quick images of her doing various yoga positions.  She smiled and agreed.

My willing subject was Susie, a Professional Yoga and Pilates instructor.  Her strength and control over her poses more than validated her credentials.  After several poses on the beach, she agreed to again assume her handstand backbend that originally caught my eye.  Hard edges of the pier structure were softened by the gentle curve she provided.  The soft morning light added a natural warmth and a natural glow to her skin.

For professional Yoga or Pilates instruction, contact Susie to schedule an appointment.  Be sure to check out her website:  www.YogaSusie.com  You will enjoy her friendly manner as well as her knowledge of how to strengthen the human body.
