Bikram 60 Day Challenge

by JenB

For the last 3 1/2 years I have been practicing Bikram Yoga It has literally changed my life. For the last two years we have done a 60 day challenge (completing 60 classes in 60 days.) This year, at the end of the challenge, the students and teachers that participated celebrated with a photo shoot. I was honored to take these pictures. These students and teachers are an inspiration. Congrats to all who finished!

My Kids

So as I was setting up lights the other day in my studio, my kids were there with me. I looked over at them and realized how quickly they have grown. Also, how long it had been since taking their pictures.. they sat for a few pics and made for a happy Mom!

Congrats to my friends Janie and Charles who welcomed baby Spencer into the world.  I think she is beyond adorable. The sweet grass rose has special significance to them, Charles proposed with one, they were on the wedding cake, and now Spencer gets to hold one.

Bikram Charleston Part Two

by JenB

The other day I got the opportunity to photograph some of the instructors and advanced students at Bikram Yoga Charleston at their studio.  These photos will be used for some merchandise, etc for the studio.  I am always amazed when I see an advanced student or an instructor go into these poses.  It doesn’t seem possible to get your body to bend that way!  Check out these talented athletes-

Bikram Charleston Opens Downtown location!

by JenB

As a wedding photographer, I carry a lot of heavy gear.  One can imagine what carrying all that weight attached to your neck can do to your back.. I was having major back problems and then found Bikram Yoga.  Bikram Yoga has completely changed my life and has gotten rid of all my back issues altogether.. I am a huge, huge fan of it.  On January 8, 2011 Bikram Charleston opened a downtown location- yay!  I was so excited when David- the owner of the studio asked me to come and photograph the opening.  The studio is beautiful with it’s exposed brick walls and tons of natural light.  It was a pleasure to photograph this wonderful studio.  Here are some of my favorites from the opening-

Sugar Bags

by JenB

One of my best friends has been diabetic ever since I met her in seventh grade.  She has always hated the fact that there are no cute bags designed to carry all the medical supplies she needs until now.  Carolyn has started to make life a little sweeter for diabetics.  I photographed her bags and they are super cute!  Here are a few of them.  Please see her website by for more information.

On Saturday September 11th, the 2nd annual Leslie McCravy 5k to benefit Pethelper’s was held at Folly Beach.  There were so many people that came out to run and donate their time and money to this wonderful cause.  I photographed this event last year and it was a treat for me to be able to do it again this year.  Here are some photos from this special event-
