#MondayMotivation: Zoya

Where to begin when talking about this shoot?! First off, Zoya Yaseka is so amazing! Watching her move with such ease was mesmerizing. We did this test run before my shoot with Hayley to give me some understanding of working with an athlete on a trampoline. Little did I know that Zoya would make this…

Marlo Bolles is one of my favorite muses to work with in Atlanta. My fitness shoot with him last year actually inspired my long exposure series.
