Wow. Talking about an inspiring shoot! I was lucky enough to do another fitness shoot last week. This time it was with Sarah, who came down on a Saturday from Cleveland for the shoot, and then had to drive the 2 hours right back home. She is training for a big competition in early September, so she decided to book the shoot just before then to be in her prime shape!

Seeing someone this devoted to getting in shape is very inspiring to be around. Any excuses you might have for not exercising seem ridiculous when you see her photos. I hope this opens a gate for more fitness models to book shoots with me. I had a great time, and really like the potential for creative and inspiring shots with models in prime physical shape.

Sarah and her husband Ryan also run a personal training business, and wanted these photos to help advertise it. And in Sarah's case... she's her own best client! Hope these help bring in lots of business!

The Return of Lyndsay

I first met Lyndsay back in 2005 when I was just getting started with portrait photography. She was kind enough to volunteer as a model for me when I didn't really have much of a portfolio to show for myself.

She mentioned during that shoot that she cuts hair, and has been cutting my wife's, her sister's and her mom's hair ever since. She even did Monica's hair for our wedding!

Well Lyndsay had her second child since that shoot back in 2005, and hadn't done any photo shoots for a while. She finally decided to update her portfolio, and I was honored to help her out. Hopefully this is the start of many more shoots for Lyndsay as she returns to the modeling world. Welcome back Lyndsay!
