MN Yoga and Fitness Brand Photoshoot
Session Type: MN Yoga and Fitness Brand Photoshoot
Client: Mary McCallum
Mary McCallum is a Minneapolis-based yoga teacher who believes that yoga should be accessible to everyone. For her MN yoga and fitness brand photoshoot, we did two sessions that focused on Mary’s fun, fit side—one in the gym, and another one outside in nature (her two favorite places).
A longtime practitioner of yoga, Mary became frustrated when she began finding it difficult to do certain poses after putting on some weight. Uncomfortable and embarrassed at being the only plus-sized person in her classes, she stopped doing yoga for several years.
One day, with a little encouragement from her friends, Mary joined them for a yoga class where she found herself surrounded by people of all ages and sizes. It was such a great experience that she stuck with it and yoga became a regular part of her routine once again.
Inspired by her experience, she made the life-changing decision to become a yoga instructor. Around the same time, Mary started strength training and loved the way it made her feel.
Today Mary is a successful body-positive yoga teacher and personal trainer. She aims to create an inclusive, fun, non-intimidating environment for people of all shapes, sizes, and fitness levels. Her clients get a safe, supportive fitness experience that focuses on how they feel, not what they look like.
Mary’s vibe is warm and friendly, and she truly believes that you don’t have to be young, flexible, or strong to benefit from yoga and fitness.
Stay tuned for more to come from this beautiful soul as we work together on future brand sessions to tell her story of finding confidence, love, and health as a yoga teacher, personal trainer, and studio owner.
