The Best Life // An evening of yoga & goal setting

A few weeks ago, I was honored to photograph an event that one of my lululemon co-workers brought to life. Sarah (www.thegoalsguide.com) is an avid goal coach – her goal is to coach 1000 people in the next year (she’s at 140!). The Space Upstairs, above Construction Junction, was the perfect place to host this event – cozy, beautiful on this frigid cold winter night. We started with a heart-opening yoga class led by one of my favorite goal setters – Sally Sherman. She is truly an inspiration in what she’s accomplished in her life, and the obstacles that have not stopped her have only fueled her positive and optimistic outlook. Then Sarah led us through a vision and goals session that allowed  our wildest dreams to become possible - because you really do have the power and choice to accomplish whatever it is you want in your life.

Lawrenceville Renovation – House Tour!

It’s official – Art & I just closed on our first home in Lawrenceville! We were outgrowing our apartment, and went on a search last summer to find our dream home. After looking through many many homes (probably over 50+) with our realtor Debra Gordon from Howard Hanna (she was very patient with us), we finally decided on this little gem of a renovation done by E-Properties, who specializes in flipping houses in the city. My dad is very in-tune with Feng Shui principles so there were a lot of stars that had to align!

They made the process rather easy, as we got to flip through inspiration on Houzz (think Pinterest for home design) and “like” all the photos we were drawn to. Then, an architect from Moss Architects found common themes of what we liked and brought us options for finishes! A few months later…we are finally moving in! I am beyond excited, and hopefully this means a little French Bulldog in our future!

Brad Tobias // lululemon athletica Ambassador Shoot

Brad is one of those tough guys who never really smiles so I consider it an honor that I have actually seen his teeth (or at least some of them). He is one of the owners and coaches at Mt. Lebanon Crossfit, and we recently asked him to be one of lululemon Ross Park’s ambassadors! He is always pushing all of his students with some tough love to reach their personal best and has goals of making Pittsburgh a healthier city. Here are some highlights from his ambassador shoot!

Cutie Pie Kendall // Mellon Park Shoot

This odd fall weather reminded me that I never posted photos of my shoot with Kendall! Kendall is one of those little girls that just keeps getting cuter and cuter (if that’s even possible). She was a little shy at first but then her inner little rockstar model took over quickly. I definitely foresee some child modeling in her future! Add in some fall leaves and it’s show time!
