tasha rae : urban yoga

Tasha Rae (BLOG)-2

Excited to finally be posting this session! After coming back from yoga teacher training, I really wanted to emphasize being fully present in my journey.  After a bit of personal growth and a little winter hibernation, here I am, a new, hopefully more enlightened, more creative person, and photographer.

This is definitely one of my favorite yoga sessions to date!  I had wanted to do a downtown session for a while, so when Tasha came to me and said that she was looking for an urban feel, I was so excited.  I love the back alleys in Edmonton and they were the perfect back drop to Tasha’s unique edginess.  Contrasted with the absolute beauty and grace of her strong practice…magic.

Screenshot 2014-08-19 00.32.19

love, music and yoga.  yep, that pretty much sums up this session.  if you were going to design your life, doesn’t that sound pretty perfect?  Robindra and Myrah are the two visionaries from itstimetobloom and creators of Bloom Edmonton Yoga Festival!  and they are all about life designing and transforming your dreams in to reality! Bloom is a multi day yoga, music and inspirational speaker festival designed to inspire, connect and celebrate LIFE!  It is where intention meets action to create the space for possibility. They are about YOU, US, WE living fully and completely while sharing our unique gifts in service to humanity.

Initially this session was just a yoga photo session with Robindra, but it ended up becoming so much more.  I am always so blessed to collaborate my photography with the creative minds of the Edmonton community. Robindra, also known as Dj Robindra, is a pure architect of sound, spreading good vibrations and inspiring beats wherever he goes.  it was so fun to take some additional DJ shots with him and to have Myrah grace us with her spirit, what a true beauty.  ah!  I just adore everything about this session.  I seriously can’t get enough of these two!,  with their beautiful yoga, radiant love and, oh, so much cuteness, you can’t help but be inspired.  can’t wait for Bloom!  it’s going to be amazing!

jackson family : family and lifestyle

jacksonblog-23

I just adore this sweet little family.  Jalene and Andrew, two of the most amazing people ever, who are perfect for each other in every way; and now there is three.  oh, Chester, you are the sweetest!  I seriously can not get enough of you!  and you are so blessed to have two incredible people for parents.  I just love all the beautiful shots we got, most with everyone enjoying happy and quiet snuggles, but even when they were crying, the Jackson family was adorable and amazing.

I really love when peoples homes reflect their personalities and style so well; in this department, the Jackson family definitely knows what’s up.  from their adorable little table to Jalene’s impressive Pyrex collection, and all the old school cuteness in between,  it was so fun taking photos with them in their vintage and retro home.  we even got to get dressed up at the end in true “I love Lucy” style to take some fun era photos, complete with suspenders and pipe!

thank you Jackson family for an amazing session, you are wonderful and perfect.  Chester, I look forward to our next cuddle sesh!

michele theoret : empowered yoga

micele-12

I loved this on the lake yoga session with Michele Theoret from Empowered Yoga!  so many beautiful shots!  and it’s so nice to be doing photo shoots outside again!  thank you spring!  yoga by the water and in the sand is esspecially gorgeous to me and the light was just perfect.

photographing Michele was so fun!  she is easily one of the most authentic people you will ever meet and you can’t help but feel instantly comfortable around her.  one of the things I love about photographing yoga teachers is how much I learn in the process. as a yoga practitioner on the brink of taking my teacher training, my yoga photo sessions end up being these amazing opportunities to glean wisdom from some pretty inspiring and knowledgable yogis. so blessed to be able to listen to Michele communicate her thoughts on the practice of yoga. Michele has so much passion and knowledge to share, all while being super real. she hosts comprehensive 200hr and 500hr teacher trainings where she places emphasis on how we can combine modern day sports medicine with the traditional practice of yoga to create a fulfilling, beautiful life, in a modern setting.  you can also bet that she almost always has a really amazing and intensive workshop happening to help you on your journey of self discovery and balance!

thank you Michele for a wonderful photo session and for being so amazing!

check her out at www.empoweredyoga.ca or on Facebook!

susan lamash : yoga

susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-26 I am forever grateful that I get to collaborate my love for photography and my love for yoga. I am able to express so much through both of them and to have them come together is a very moving and inspiring to me.  this session with Susan was amazing.  so much beautiful yoga.  such a stunning location.  of course, the very vibrant, Susan Lamash.  MC Yogi.  and let’s not forget the multiple outfit changes (love those)!  this session was seriously so much fun!  I absolutely adored working with Susan, she has so much gratitude and appreciation for the practice of yoga.  one thing that really resonated with me was how much truly loves the yoga community.  her desire to contribute to it, inspire it, cultivate it.  we all have wonderful studio families that we’ve connected to.  a supportive sangha where we have put down roots.  and that is amazing and should be honoured and nurtured. there is also a bigger community, one that we all belong to, whether you are a yoga practitioner or not.  one of my teachers, Ryan Leier, reminds us, truth is…we are one.  I love that Susan gets that.  it’s so inspiring to photograph, and be able to communicate with, someone who loves people and loves life in such a transparent and genuine way. thank you so much, Susan!  for the amazing session and for your beautiful, open heart.  (and for your pretty stellar yogi toes!) susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-21susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-25 susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-24susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-22susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-23susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-29susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-27 susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-30susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-31susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-34susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-33 susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-32susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-35susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-36susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-37 susan yoga - head-1susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-39susan yoga - hand-1 susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-19susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-12susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-13susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-15susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-16 susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-17susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-14susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-10susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-7susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-4 susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-5susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-6susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-1 susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-11susan yoga - WEB&BLOG-9 namasté. © Jennifer Crebas and Jenn Crebas Photography, 2013.

teresa byer : prairie yogi magazine

t 2 blog-7

I recently had a very mini yoga session with the beautiful and amazing Teresa Byer for Prairie Yogi Magazine!  you can read her article on the gifts of yoga here.

Teresa is definitely one of my favourite clients and people.  her yoga practice is continually awing to me, but above that, her vibrant presence, simply put, just makes life better.  spend two seconds with her and you’ll know what I mean.  I have been fortunate enough to have a few sessions with Teresa now, with more in the very near future, and now that the weather is warmer, we’ll be doing our next one outside.

check out her incredible power flow classes at Moksha Yoga Edmonton!  and for an extra treat, join her, and the wonderful Christina Cheung, in Tulum, Mexico, for a yoga retreat they are hosting in July!

this was definitely a very short session, but I think that these are some of my favourite shots of Teresa so far!  enjoy!

katie mahon : yoga & lifestyle

“there is nothing left to do, except to go deep in, to the center of the experience” ~ Katie Mahon WEB Katie Mahon-16 I was recently blessed with the opportunity to collaborate with the incredibly inspiring, and beautiful, Katie Mahon from The Sattva School of Yoga, for an article for Prairie Yogi Magazine!  you can find her article here… a place I have come to call hOMe.  I am so grateful to have been able to contribute my photos to it. I have come to know Katie as one of my own personal teachers and she has become a great light in my life.  If you’ve ever taken one of Katie’s sattva yoga classes, you already know just how inspiring and amazing she is, her passion for this practice literally shines through her.  She has a way with words that really penetrate your core and deepen your yoga practice in ways that you didn’t previously know were possible.  In the same way, reading Katie’s heart felt article will make you fall in love with Edmonton and leave you feeling connected in new ways that you previously didn’t know were possible.  I feel that we can find immense beauty in ordinary objects if we take the time to focus on the intricate details that make up it’s being.  It’s one of the big reasons I am a photographer!  I love working with light to show beauty in a new perspective, through photographs.  This is what Katie has done in this article.  The picture of Edmonton she has painted for us brings attention to those same beautiful intricacies, that sometimes get over looked as we hurry through our busy lives…much the same way yoga brings us to the subtle beauty of the present moment.  Katie gets us to slow down and appreciate where we are right here, right now, in this very moment, whether we are on the mat, or off the mat, as we make our way through our daily lives.  Katie’s article is about the vibrancy of Edmonton and the pulse of the strong yoga community within it…but whether you are from Edmonton or not, if you stop and take time to appreciate the same subtle beauty of where YOU are, right here, right now, you will feel that same vibration and appreciation.  Take this moment, even just a small one, and enjoy your current space. Thank you Katie.  I am so grateful for your spirit, your love for yoga, and your love for this city we call hOMe.  here is the full photo session that we did.  enjoy! WEB Katie Mahon-17

katie and jordan : engaged!!

katiejordanBLOG-37

Katie and Jordan, ENGAGED!!!  this has got to be one of my all time favourite sessions to date.  When Katie messaged me, she told me she was looking for a boho feeling engagement session and was wondering if we needed any props to accomplish it.  besides the fact that Katie has an incredible natural beauty and a pretty stellar boho fashion style already, her and Jordan also live in the most beautiful countryside AND they have a bright orange hippie van (complete with shag carpet on the walls!).  definitely no props needed.  on top of that, Jordan has a badass motorcycle and they are parents to the sweetest little pup Lily.  and let’s not forget Katie and Jordan.  completely in love with each other, and also, two of the funnest, warmest, most wonderful people you will ever meet.   all of this adds up to a pretty amazing session that I am so excited to share!  congratulations Katie and Jordan!

warning.   amazing engagement session ahead.  and therefore, a million photos.  this is definitely one of my longer blog posts, but there was so many to love and I just could not bear to leave too many out!

sarah : newborn and lifestyle

baby sarah-13

baby Sarah!  I seriously love this little sweetie pie and the two incredible people, Averyl and Levi, who made her.  this session gave me serious baby fever.  I just love when they are so small and new, and Sarah is such a sweetheart!  and those little toes!!  so adorable.

we had our session at their home, which I just love.  it’s so nice to capture a family in their own space.  it’s where they live and create memories and I love the opportunity to help preserve those memories.  and with their beautiful nursery for Sarah and their uber awesome floor tiled with actual pennies, it’s a great place for a photo session as unique as they are.
