My photoshoot with IFBB Bikini Pro and sponsored athlete Jennifer Dawn

Happy Thursday everyone!  I wanted to share my recent photoshoot from last weekend with IFBB Bikini Pro, fitness model and sponsored athlete Jennifer Dawn. It was my first time photographing her and we shot at Pacific Beach in San Diego, CA area in the morning near the pier. We captured beautiful photos with her physique in a variety of outfits including swimsuit and fashion. Majority of the photos were shot with a single speedlight & flash bracket and natural light. It was a fun photoshoot and was great shooting with Jenn. We worked together around 6 years ago for a fitness magazine on a spotlight feature when I designed her layout single page feature. She was fun to work with and it was great seeing her again. Can't wait to show some edited pics from this shoot soon.  Have a great day people!

Weekend Photoshoot with fit mom Samantha Sage and her son

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a nice weekend! I had a photoshoot with the lovely fit mom Samantha Sage and her beautiful son Levi this past Sunday. It was my second time working with Samantha since her first one from the early summer. We shot near the Solana Beach, CA area, a few miles away from Carlsbad, CA. We captured beautiful photos of the both of them having a great time at the beach. My first time in a while doing a photoshoot like this with a child but it was fun and a learning experience. I packed light for this shoot since I will be going down a stack of stairs with a small flash and reflector. It was fun hanging out with the both of them and captured some good photos to. Can't wait to show some edited pics from this shoot soon. Have a great week!

Photoshoot with ProSupps sponsored athlete Cristina Sawh

Happy Thursday! Sorry, I have been lagging on my blog. Last weekend was awesome with few photoshoots I did with a few fitness models in the San Diego area including the amazing Prosupps sponsored athlete Cristina Sawh. We shot at the beautiful Windesea beach in the afternoon. The weather was warm and beautiful but with high tides with large amounts of people.  However,  we managed to capture a great amount of beautiful photos showcasing her physique in and out of the water with both dress and swimwear. She is competing in an NPC fitness competition this weekend in San Diego. For the photoshoot, I used both my 50mm lens for majority of the shots and last portion of the shoot with my 80-200 so I can zoom in on the shots so my equipment won't get wet since Cristina was in the water.  We both survived the shoot and came home with great photos from this shoot.  It was a few months in the making. Thank you Cristina. It was fun.
