Three times Beautiful {Federal Way Business Photography}

I entitled this post "Three times Beautiful" because that is what these ladies are...BEAUTIFUL!  Not only outside, but they radiate an internal beauty that makes me just want to be around them.

They own a local business called Three Trees Yoga (the three of them being the Three Trees).  It is an amazing yoga studio that I frequent as often as I can and if you live in the Federal Way area, I highly recommend you come check it out.  In fact, they will have an open house on June 5th and 6th where you can come for free classes and more ....does it get any better than that?!?!

I am at a bit of a loss for what to write to go along with their pictures from our session together.  I want to write something really eloquent but I feel like I will just keep repeating myself by saying that I just really, really like to be around these three!!  All of them left other careers to take the risk of opening a business that only existed in their dreams.  They were all willing to leave behind something in order to become the Three Trees.  For that I admire them...and for that I want to grace their pictures with some words by Ilan Shamir in his "Advice from a Tree".

Stand tall and Proud
Sink your roots deeply into the Earth

Reflect the light of a greater source
Think long term
Go out on a limb
Remember your place among all living things

Embrace with joy the changing seasons
For each yields its own abundance
The energy and birth of Spring
The growth and contentment of Summer
The wisdom to let go of leaves in the Fall
The rest and quiet renewal of Winter

Feel the wind and the sun
And delight in their presence

Look up at the moon that shines down upon you
And the mystery of the stars at night

Seek nourishment from the good things in life
Simple pleasures
Earth, fresh air, light

Be content with your natural beauty
Drink plenty of water
Let your limbs sway and dance in the breezes

Be flexible
Remember your roots
Enjoy the view!

I totally love photographing you ladies!!  Thank you for the opportunity.  The pleasure is all mine!!

Tara, next time we're in Seattle can I go with you to one of your yoga classes! I would totally love that! And I love the the words you shared from Ilan Shamir - so beautiful. I might just have to repost them. Thanks for this.
