#Instagram Round-up: October 2015

So many awesome shoots this month mixed in with some family travel (a cousin wedding in Indiana) and of course a beagle photo or two. After the bad weather earlier in the month cleared up, October turned out to be pretty gorgeous! So far, November has been pretty stunning as well. Knock on wood, we're all enjoying it while it lasts...

Group Fitness Photography in Boston's South End

It's always fun to photograph group fitness, especially this gorgeous time of year. I recently did a photo shoot with trainer Chris Carreiro at a park where he regularly holds bootcamp-style classes. He brought a whole crew to help him out with the photos and their energy was infectious! Not only were they supporting Chris by being in the shoot but they cheered each other on the whole time I was photographing the exercises. It was a blast! Here are some of the finished results:


 I can't wait to see the final results on the website when it's all put together. Thanks for a great shoot, Chris! You're a lucky guy to have such awesome clients. :)

Fitness Photography: Personal Trainer Camilla

This shoot with personal trainer, Camilla Cantelli Mortensen, was so cool because she was totally open to the dramatic lighting and had the perfect look for it. The Pinterest board she created as inspiration for the shoot had a bunch of striking poses she wanted to try too. Check out these strong, lean photos of Camilla!

Boston Fitness Photography: Personal Trainer Monika Mazur

Meet Monika! Monika is not only an NPC Athlete but she is one of the most enthusiastic personal trainers I've ever come across. A trainer at Healthworks in Brookline, she created the Body By Monika program and her clients see results! I know this because she is their biggest cheerleader- working with them, encouraging them along the way, and posted their progress photos all over social media. Her training is described as "intense" but she also has a great sense of humor and could not be more proud of her clients reaching their goals.

I actually did two shoots with Monika last summer and fall, here's some of what we shot:

Fitness + Pilates Photography: Meg Scannell at Exhale Battery Wharf

I realize that I've strayed a bit from highlighting images from my fitness shoots... so I'm bringing it back! Starting with a shoot I did last summer with the lovely, strong and oh-so-flexible Meg, a fitness instructor who teaches at Exhale Battery Wharf and Barry's Bootcamp. Meg wanted to do her shoot on location at Exhale and I'm so glad we did- the light was soft and pretty and the studio is a beautiful space. Even after all this time, I still love looking at these photos-

I mean, for real?! 

Barry's Bootcamp is Coming to Boston

Just in time for their grand opening weekend- here are Dustin Martin and Brian Weller, the guys who brought the "best workout in the world"- Barry's Bootcamp - to Boston. The guys wanted some standard head shots and posed photos but they did let me play around with the lighting to get some intense, dramatic shots too. Here's what we came up with-

Fitness Photography: Personal Trainer Dan

When I met Equinox personal trainer Dan, he had been training hard. His girlfriend, Laura, had given him a challenge- to step outside his comfort zone. Dan did this by signing up for a Tough Mudder, and following all of the advice he gives to his clients- eating consciously, and increasing his workout intensity. In the end he wound up losing 10% body fat in 12 weeks and Laura added a bonus- a photo shoot to document the result of all of his dedication and hard work. I was honored to capture Dan's progress in these photos: 
 

And of course we had to get a shot of Laura too-

Thanks again Dan and congrats on reaching your fitness goals!

Putting Photos to Work

I thought it might be interesting to do a post on some of the ways my clients are using the images we create together. Generally they are looking for photos for marketing purposes- websites, flyers, postcards, blogs, Facebook fan pages, etc. Here are a few examples of how some of the photos are getting put to work!

Last fall I did a shoot for activewear company, DA Active. This is a preview of their Fall 2013 line which they showed at the Surf Expo in Orlando, FL.

 Pilates guru, Jennifer Phelan, used the images to advertise Pilates events she was teaching around the city, including one sponsored by Zico Coconut Water.

 Websites! Most of my clients are looking for quality photos for their websites and here are a few examples! From top left: www.alibaldassare.com, www.laurastevensonpilates.com, www.jeannieyoga.com, www.jenniferphelan.com.

A little inspiration can go a long way. Lauren of Sweat with Lauren Hefez used this photo and quote to inspire her followers on instagram.

Fitness Portrait Shoot with Personal Trainer Kristin Lorenze


Meet Kristin Lorenze! Kristin trains clients privately and also at Get In Shape For Women in Wellesley, MA. Kristin came to me looking for photos for her new website and marketing materials.

She wanted some shots to submit to magazines that feature fitness professionals, like Oxygen Magazine. We did a few clean shots like this before moving on to the more dramatic lighting set-ups...


 Stretch!






Thanks to Kristin for a great shoot!

Pilates Photography: Sarah Ruback of Sync Pilates Studio


Meet Sarah Ruback. Sarah owns a classical Pilates studio in Brookline called Sync Pilates and needed some photos for her website. We decided the best way to show off her Pilates skills and personality would be to do a shoot in a big bright studio just filled with light. My wonderful friend and mentor, Jim Scherer, was kind enough to loan us his space which was perfect for executing our vision. With the help of stylist Keely Witkowski of B. Fetching, the shoot was a big success. I love working with such a talented team! :)
