More from my photo shoot with @summerbrezie and her lovely family!
Side note- is @instagram ‘s new algorithm giving you any issues? I’ve noticed that the algorithm has many limits, including image quality. Seems that it compresses the image below its limit (1080 pixels per inch), making for poor quality. I hope they upgrade it, soon!
We are so excited to have @mjdahllacroix wedding featured in @premierweddings first print edition in San Antonio !!! We are on pages 50-53!!

🙀There are 168 hours in a week. About 56 hours are dedicated for sleep 💤 and about 56 hours for work. That leaves 56 hours. Granted, these 56 sacred hours are spent doing laundry👖, making meals 🥣, cleaning, taking a shower🚿, commuting 🚙, etc. But when you put it in this perspective it makes you rethink how you spend your time. Do you want to dedicate an hour each day to yoga 🧘🏻♀️ or exercise 💪🏻? Yes, please 🙋🏻♀️for me! Find the time in your schedule to do what is important to you.⠀
👉🏻Meditation: Take at least 5 minutes each day to meditate. Work your way up to 10, 20+ minutes each day. The time spent meditating is worth every second of your time. The benefits will greatly impact you and those around you.⠀
Just a few benefits:⠀
🌟Reduces stress, anxiety and depression.⠀
🌟Increases relaxation. ⠀
🌟Allows you to be more present. ⠀
🌟Lowers blood pressure.⠀
🌟Creates a positive mindset.⠀
🌟Improves mindfulness, concentration, productivity and more! ⠀
Happy 😃 Monday!⠀
Did you meditate today?⠀

“Visited the gorgeous Japanese Tea Garden within the Golden Gate Park in San Francisco recently. Enjoyed our stroll among bonsai trees, stupas and the cherry blossoms, in full bloom. Originally built as the Japanese Village for the 1894 Midwinter International Exposition, the garden boasts traditional monuments, bowed bridges, serene ponds and native plants.
Pictured is the koi fish pond within the gardens, and a perfect spot to capture the Matsaya (fish) Mudra.” – Tanya Datta
Matsaya is a two hand Mudra, the 16th in the Samyuta Hastas series. In Indian Classical dance it is used to depict fish. Matsaya is one of the ten Avatars of Lord Vishnu in the Dashavatar legend. Regular practice of this mudra cultivates relaxation and serenity. (Mudras for Healing & Transformation by Joseph and Lilian Le Page)
To form Mudra : Place the inside of your right palm over the top of your left palm, symmetrically, such that both are parallel to the floor. All fingers are held together except for the thumbs that are extended.
