transcendent women

About five years ago, I met up with Karen Dunn (incredibly gracious and talented owner of Karen Turley Photography) to talk about my new business venture. Karen was just phasing out of wedding photography (she had run an incredibly successfully business in the DC/Metro area for ten years) and was, at the time, pursuing her PhD.

I remember being struck by how incredibly generous and encouraging she was. She gave me plenty of sound advice and really helped me to get my business off on the right foot. I owe so much to her guidance! So… fast-forward a few years. Dr. Karen Dunn is now the founder and director of Transcendent Women here in Warrenton. Just recently, she contacted me about taking a few black and white shots to highlight her yoga studio, which is just a small piece of her larger business. Needless to say, I was flattered and also a little nervous! But I loved visiting her at the studio and had a great time capturing her in action. Below are just a few quick shots from that shoot. If you’re in the Warrenton area, you should definitely check out her incredible studio!
Check back soon for photos from Anne and John’s amazing wedding at Airlie!
