Moments of Presence

UR • Yoga Photography

Yoga is more than just creating shapes with your body. It’s about being fully you. Why change this principle in front of a camera? Yoga photoshoots are not just about taking pictures of you in a pose, it’s about capturing your unique essence in this moment.

Full Embodiment

Embody your postures and expand deeply. Any style and experience – you are welcome as you are. As an active Yogini and certified Yoga teacher, I pay close attention to optimal alignment. Years of experience have taught me the poses and angles to take amazing photos of you.

Truly Unforgetable

An experience as individual as you. Imagine it for a moment: You. Doing Yoga. In Nature. In Bali. Fully present. Guided and supported in every way you can think of. And all this captured in pictures for you always to remember.

The Beauty of Bali

Bali is pure magic. You can feel it, see it, breathe it. The locations for our photoshoot are selected with care. Often hidden, these spots certainly have the authentic Bali flair the island is known for throughout the world. What better way to take the unique Bali feeling home with you?

Different Styles

One Unique Expression

Whatever your style and your level of practice – at this moment in time you are perfect they way you are. Let’s allow your unique expression to shine through.

A Celebration of You

From years of experience and working with hundreds of Yoginis,  I understand the potenital challenge of being in front of a lense. Let’s set an intention together and make this experience personal, intimate and beautiful.

Got Questions?

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions for you.
In case you have more questions, you can find more answers on the FAQ page or you can contact me at anytime.

I want to book a photoshoot! How does it work?

Great! First, please get in touch HERE so we can set a time and date for our photoshoot. We can discuss details for the shoot either on the phone or face-to-face. Once we set a date, I will email you a written agreement. Please fill it out and return it to me.

Second, our photoshoot! To lock your booking in, I am asking you to pay a 50% deposit. This deposit is non refundable. The second part of the payment is due before the photoshoot starts. In case outer circumstances like the weather prevent us to stick to our plan, we will of course reschedule.

Third, time to select your favourite photos! Usually within one week after our shooting  I will send you a link to an online gallery with your photos. At this stage the photos are called ‘proofs’ because they are only mildly retouched, with the sole purpose for you to select what you like best. Depending on your package, you can expect between 50 and 150 proofs to choose from.

Fourth, Photos! After selecting your favourites, I will retouch your chosen images in detail. About a week later you will receive a link to download your set of photos in both low (for web) and high resolution (for print). Voilà!

How many outfits do I need to bring?

Generally I suggest to bring three different outfits. You can bring more or less, depending how much variation you would like to see in your photos. Wearing a different outfit for each of the different location, gives you greater variety when using your photos. Accessories are also good to put on the check list.

 

Do I need to wear makeup?

Generally I recommend to wear makeup for a photoshoot, even if only mascara and some lip gloss. Some Yoginis never wear makeup and prefer to not combine makeup with their Yoga practice. Others feel more confident with mascara and some makeup.

I have skin imperfections – Can the photos be retouched?

Yes, of course! I specialize in retouching skin in order to enhance the look of my clients with full integrity. Retouching in detail is quite a lengthy process. To keep it fair and balanced, I include 2-5 images I work on closely, depending on the package.
All images undergo careful retouching and I’m sure you will love the outcome. I usually customize my post production to your personal needs.

How do I pay?

Payments are made in 2 steps. To lock your booking in, I am asking you to pay a 50% deposit upon setting the date of the photoshoot. This deposit is non refundable. The second part of the payment is due before the photoshoot starts. I accept cash, Paypal and bank transfers.

How long does it take to get my photos?

I looooove to keep the momentum up! There are several steps involved in order to get your finished photos, which can take anywhere from two to four weeks. The time simply depends on how quickly we move through the process.

Step 1: Within two weeks after our photoshoot you will receive a link to an online gallery with your photos. At this stage the photos are called ‘proofs’ because they are only mildly retouched, with the sole purpose for you to select the ones you like best. Depending on your package, you can expect between 80 and 150 proofs to choose from.

Step 2: Now its up to you to select your favourites. The sooner you pick your photos, the sooner we can move to the next step.

Step 3: Once you confirm your selection, I will retouch your chosen images in detail. Depending on the number of photos, this can take up to two weeks.

Step 4: As soon as this is done, you will receive a link to download your set of photos. Voilà!
