Q- How did you feel throughout the day?
A- Initially, being on both the production and modeling sides of the photoshoot didn’t leave me much time to stress about being photographed, it allowed me a distraction from being present in the moment. It did ignite a dialogue with the internal critic, for, as a Marketing Director, I know what I am looking for in the finished product. My first set of photos was somewhat awkward, I tried breathing into the discomfort, attempting to relax my gaze, soften my facial expression and not come across tense, although I was.
Q- Stepping on the mat for your second set, how did you summon your inner anchors and manage to relax and connect to your center?
A- The yoga mat - that is where I felt most at home within all the flickering lights and camera clicks. In all honesty, I myself was surprised to see how on the mat I succeeded in allowing myself to move freely, shaking off any expectation to be one way or another, not exaggerating poses for the camera, not allowing the photoshoot to distract my inner peace.
