Carlee Benear | Yoga Nursing Session / by Brittany Teel

Let me start this off with background of my friendship with Carlee so you know where our story starts....

I met Carlee on the webs over 3 years ago when I first saw her use the term "crunchy". I never knew what this term was until she used it and thought...I am kinda "crunchy" too, let's be friends! She was someone who was a lot like myself with similar interest and two little boys. We were good friends right off the bat! We both ended up finding a passion around the same time that filled our souls and kept us happy. Mine was photography and hers was yoga. Over time she became a dear friend simply because of her kind heart.

THEN one day Carlee told me she was expecting! I watched her continue to practice yoga all creating another human! This woman was incredible. I just HAD to document her strength. So ...we did a shoot in the river bottom to showcase her talent while she was 8 almost 9 months pregnant. I did another shoot with her right after Maramaylee entered the the world. Carlee had mastered the skill of NURSING while practicing yoga.

Fast forward to exactly one year after our nursing session and we booked another shoot just so I can continue to document her progress. I can say that seeing her do this in person is jaw-dropping. Her strength is out of this world! Anyways, enough chatter now...I will let the rest of these images speak for themselves.

Until next time! 

XOXO
