Meet Sandra. She's tough, encouraging, enthusiastic, super fit, and beautiful. She's a group and personal fitness trainer at my local YMCA.
Talk about authentic "lifestyle" photography: we shot this session real-time (no do-overs, no hold-that-pose-a-little-longer, no turn-and-look-at-the-camera, no can-you-slow-it-down-so-the-pictures-won't-blur?!) during Sandra's CXWORX class. 'Twas fun, challenging, and meant that I didn't limp out of her class per my usual routine as I quickly discovered that I could not both shoot and exercise in conjunction. I'll try to make up the difference next week ... ;-)
Note for photography geeks: This was challenging! There are huge mirrors on two walls and I was trying to keep myself OUT of the pictures. If you're in a Find-Waldo kind of mood, feel free to find me in the photos above (I only cloned myself out of one, grin).
