#MondayMotivation: Nic B

I had the opportunity to photograph Los Angeles based fitness trainer Nic B. One thing I love about following her on instagram is that everyday she reminds you to shine your light!

Where to begin when talking about this shoot?! First off, Zoya Yaseka is so amazing! Watching her move with such ease was mesmerizing.

#GetFreeWithBee: Marlo Bolles

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.

So I randomly came across Joshua “Showtime” Williams‘ instagram and immediately fell in love with his voice!
