I first met Ronnie Howard when shooting a new collection for Kelbourne Woolens. She is a phenomenal plus size model, a yoga practicioner, and just an incredible person! Along with being a professional model she also hosts and organizes a yoga class called Vibes & Vinyasa.
Last October I invited her to come over for a fun, collaborative shoot in our studio. The series was created organically and I love it! Ronnie gracefully moved into some yoga postures that one may think look easy, but, trust me, they are NOT. I’ve tried. When I asked if she preferred I retouch her skin for the final images she said “No, I like the rawness”
Over the last few years I have noticed some really remarkable women really empowering others, building confidence and body positivity in the wellness community and beyond. I believe that Ronnie is one of those women. She doesn’t preach it much, but her actions speak “loud and clear” to me.
A few behind the scenes snippets…
I loved this series so much that I entered it into Photo District New’s annual Adrenaline photo contest. Turns out I’m a winner! It’s published in March’s issue of the magazine! I haven’t renewed my subscription (yet) so I found out through a friend when he shared a phone snap of the page with me! Thanks Joe!
