You Matter Yoga • A YogiMama Session with Kristen | Cypress, TX Lifestyle Photographer

I have been sitting on these pictures for weeks, eagerly anticipating sharing them with you all. But alas, blogging always gets kicked to the bottom of the to do list. And I think I fall in line with most moms and mamaprenuers when I say my to do list sure seems bottomless, ha!

Speaking of mamaprenuers, Kristen Mueller of You Matter Yoga is a mom of two beautiful girls and a yoga instructor in the Houston area. She's inspiring, empowering, and a total breath of fresh area. She shares videos of her workouts & yoga flows as her daughters watch (and mimic!), and she inspires me to flow when I feel like it. And she taught me that it's okay to laugh and have fun and pause your flow when your littles interrupt your attempt at an at-home work out. When you're a mom, you have to go with the flow (yogi pun intended)!

While it's not very obvious in most of the pictures (because she's super fit), Kristen was very pregnant for this shoot! So she was making a baby, caring for a child, and being a yogi all at once. And she juggled it like the pro that she is.

These images are very near and dear to my heart. They showcase so much of what I enjoy about motherhood, and so much of what I admire about our hearts and bodies as women. So without further ado, let's take a look at my session with Kristen & her daughter Kaitlyn...
