Since last October, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing more than 25 classes for the awesome people at Arizona Goat Yoga. In doing so, I’ve met some amazing people, created so many fun photographs and gotten to know the owners & goats pretty dang well. They’ve had their story featured around the world, and I’ve had photos featured in some pretty cool places ranging from Cosmo & Glamour, to ABC15 to LDSLiving. The trend of Goat Yoga exploded after people realized just how fun it really is, and now there are hundreds of classes being offered. None of them compare to the classes offered right here in Gilbert, AZ though. Here are 5 reasons Arizona Goat Yoga is the best Goat Yoga in the world!
When I started photographing classes for Arizona Goat Yoga, I did it because it was fun, outdoors and I get free goat snuggles. What I didn’t really realize was how many fun people I’d meet! These two lovebirds took a class, then contacted me a few weeks later to update their couple photos (with their 3 legged pup!) prior to their wedding this fall. She asked if we could go somewhere that didn’t look like AZ, a location with green, trees and reminiscent of him growing up on a farm. The amazing owners of the Goat Yoga field allowed us to use their property for photos and while we were there, their kids came outside with baby goats. So, of course, the triplet goats were snuggled in some photos too!! It was such a fun evening, and we created beautiful photos that this couple definitely won’t forget!!
When Power Ranch Living magazine told me that the March/April issue would be pet focused, I knew immediately that I wanted to find a family who loved their pets as family members. The Nemetz family adopted Red & Zoey from a rescue group and they think they are litter mates, but aren’t certain. What is for certain is that they are best friends, who have been through a lot, and are super loved by their non-furry family. We planned the photos to be at home, where the girls are most comfortable and able to be themselves. As a dog owner myself, I know that each dog has a distinct personality and these two definitely showed me theirs during our photo time. Both were so sweet, and listened pretty well. (Treats always help with the listening part). I had a hard time narrowing it down to my favorites to submit for the magazine cover and I’m really happy with the one photo Power Ranch Living chose as the cover image!
