A Beautiful Maternity Session | Candid Joy Photography | Southeast Minnesota’s Maternity Photographer

For the past four and a half months, I have been waking up at 4:40am three to five times a week.  Why you ask am I crazy enough to wake up this early?!?!  Well, Chatfield has a new yoga studio, Studio 223, and let me tell you, this place is pretty amazing!   Not only are the classes full of physical and mental challenges, that believe it or not are actually a lot of fun (yes, even at the crack of dawn), these classes are also instructed by some pretty amazingly fit and inspirational women.

Jayna, the instructor for Barre, is one of the instructors at Studio 223.   Every Wednesday and Friday morning, I have marveled at Jayna’s crazy flexibility, stamina and energy … all while pregnant with her first child.  I remember when I was pregnant with my children and I know without a doubt there is no way I could have pulled off the moves she was able to with such grace and ease (Splits!!  Plies!!  3 minute planks!!  Endless amounts of push-ups!!).   With such a fit pregnant body and a radiant pregnancy glow, I was pretty excited to get Jayna in the studio for her maternity session.

Jayna told me before her session she thought she was a pretty awkward photo taker … I seriously beg to differ … Jayna, look at yourself … you were absolutely stunning!
