Lifestyle Portraits of Shawna Turner

Shawna Turner | Jessica Blaine Smith

I love doing lifestyle portrait sessions. Sessions that aren’t about getting the perfect-smiling-at-the-camera portrait and instead are about documenting people as they are, doing what it is that they do. Shawna Turner is one of those magical people and you just know it when you meet her. She is full of so much knowledge and moves with grace that I am in awe of. I first met Shawna a little over a year ago when I signed up for one of her Chakra Circles. For seven weeks, I would go to her home and sit with a few other women where we would learn, write, meditate and move our bodies. Those seven weeks changed my life and sent me spinning in a whole other direction of life. In the late summer, we did a lifestyle portrait session to document just what it is that Shawna does. She invited a group of women to her home where they did a full moon ceremony before we headed to the lake to continue with some sweet, sweet sunlight. I love the resulting images.

Shawna has a lot planned for the coming months including new circles/classes and a retreat to Guatemala. I HIGHLY suggest heading on over to her website and signing up for her Chakra Ebook to learn more about what she has to offer.Shawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine SmithShawna Turner | Jessica Blaine Smith
