#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! We all have many super powers but there’s nothing more rewarding than having a positive impact on someone’s life by simply being yourself and inspiring…

#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…

#MondayMotivation: Hayley

I had the opportunity to photograph UWS Soccer player and  Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited fitness model Hayley styled in Nike gear. Inspired by the movements and motion in Carlos Serrao Nike JDI campaign, I wanted to try my hand at it with my own personal twist. For this shoot, the model was jumping on a trampoline…

#MotivationMonday: Natasha

I had the opportunity to work with a very good friend of mine and former triathlete, Natasha G, who just got signed with Sport + Lifestyle Unlimited agency. We have been planning a shoot from the first time we met, but I am so honored with how everything played out in God’s timing. She’s one…

#WorkoutWednesday: Nikkie

Happy Happy Wednesday! So last week I got the opportunity to work with Nikkie of Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited Agency. Although we originally planned for an early sunrise shoot at Venice Beach, we had to reschedule last minute to a sunset shoot which still worked out great! We were able to catch the golden hour,…

In the Quiet Moments: Alan Michael-Thompson

  I had the opportunity to document a training session with Alan Michael-Thompson who is a professional basketball player in France. During the summer he trains back home in Los Angeles, while also playing in the Drew League. Inspired by his story and his dedication to his craft, I decided to do both documentary style…

#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. We did a track inspired shoot and I used graphic effects in adobe photoshop to create the illusion of motion. After creating that image, I got curious wondering how…

#MondayMotivation: Alex Hailstock

Had the opportunity to work with Alex Hailstock to create some studio fitness images for his portfolio. Playing around with the different clothing options he brought, and using the random sport props we had in the studio, we put together some awesome clean shots! I played around with lighting on each look to show some…

#WorkoutWednesday – Sarah Paul

So me and Chicago based model SP have been trying to work together for some time. While she was traveling to Atlanta for work, I happened to be there at the same time and we were able to finally work together! For this athletic lifestyle shoot, I wanted to incorporate a head wrap in the looks….

#MotivationMonday – Kari Pt. 2

Remember my previous post from my fitness shoot with Kari who was building her portfolio in order to get signed by an agency? Well guess who got signed by Brand Models! After getting signed, the agency requested some candid, flirty photos, not related to fitness. So she passed along the mood board and this was…

#MondayMotivation – Kiana

“I wanna dance with somebody!” So last month I had the opportunity to do a birthday shoot with one of my favorite dancers and VCU alum  Kiana Wood! During our shoot we spoke about her experience auditioning for Janet Jackson, and all the fun award shows she’s had the opportunity to dance for since moving…

#GetFreeWithBee – Dance

In college, at VCU, I met these two amazing dancers Malik and Kiana! I just love how social media keeps everyone connected, because we were able to reconnect back out in LA. They have both followed their passions which led them to LA and I continue to be in awe watching their dance videos. From…

#MondayMotivation – JuJu

So one of my favorite Atlanta-based wardrobe stylist, Angela Mullen of The Closet Associates, asked me to photograph her son JuJu. She wants to get him into some modeling opportunities, and to break the ice and nervousness we decided to do a sports inspired shoot to loosen him up. We had so much fun on this…

#WorkoutWednesday – Eric Z

Decided to throwback to my first photo shoot at Venice Beach with Eric Z. For this shoot we knew we wanted to get some outdoor action shots so I pulled three Nike outfits, red to coordinate the greenery at the beach, a green that worked well with the neutral workout areas, and you can never…

#MondayMotivation – Kayla

When coming up with a concept for a test shoot for Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited represented model Kayla, we wanted to do an in studio fitness shoot. In some of the images I left the v-flat in the frame because I loved the way it framed the image. We styled her in three adidas workout…
