This was one of my first shoots for a client who owned a fitness studio in Southern California and needed photos for her business. Towards the end of the session she asked if she could don some new duds and get a few personal photos with her boyfriend’s bike. No problem. The shoot itself took a turn in a different direction than originally anticipated and ended up being more of a boudoir session. There is no doubt she had a rockin’ good time adding a little spice to the day, and the only thing I regret is that she wouldn’t let me keep her fabulous boots!
While shooting bio portraits for authors at an author conference at a hotel in Denver, this particular client needing portraits for the back of her upcoming book, website, and promo materials seemed fairly standard and just like all the rest of the lovely writers that I had met that day…until she busted out her ninja swords. I had no idea when I woke up that morning that I would be shooting a ninja that day. It had started to rain right as she was going through her ninja sword performance and this was one of the last shots as she ended her routine and caught her breath.
