Inspiring Fitness Session | Medicine Hat

July 12, 2018

As you can probably tell, my main focus as a photographer is on weddings and couples. I love capturing love, and I will never ever get tired of it. There are a range of other sessions that I offer as well of course, and I really enjoy changing it up with a fun family or grad session.

There is however the odd time when someone comes along with a request for something unique, and it is SO exciting for me to have the chance to photograph something completely different from my usual work, and stretch my creative wings! This is one of those sessions, and I am happy to share it with you! While I’ve taken photos for bodybuilders before, Teresa wasn’t looking for that posed and flexing post-competition gym photo – after all she’s a beautiful, hard-working mother of three, who has been kicking butt at home in her basement following Beachbody workouts! (Who needs a gym right?!) So she was looking for something more fun, natural and athletic to commemorate finishing her latest program and celebrate her AMAZING progress, with some prints to liven up her workout space. As a photographer, I love seeing people who are proud of themselves and want to document their passion or even just a point in their lives, because it’s so important to celebrate YOU and why not have some fun doing it?!

So, we collaborated on some ideas and decided to split the session into two parts: first in studio and then at a cool outdoor location. And let me tell you, this session was a workout for both of us, and Teresa absolutely killed it! She was willing to try anything I threw at her as the inspiration came, and the results are something that we are both so proud of. Fitness is a passion that her and I share, and I know from experience just how tough those workout programs can be! In the end, I’d say it’s definitely worth it to stay happy and healthy. Now it’s time to take a look and get #motivated!
