I had so much fun photographing Michelle, of Ripped By Rycroft. She wanted some silhouettes for her website, so I got to play with light! We did a few silhouettes and a few where I let some light spill onto her to show just how "ripped" she actually is, or should I say, was. Since this session, she has continued to improve, not only her own physique, but the physiques of many clients as well.
I should admit that my nine year old daughter was greatly disturbed by this image, "Mom, that's not the right way to hold those! She's going to get hurt." I told her that we just did that for the picture, she doesn't normally lift like that. Her response, "Oh, so those aren't real weights? Phew!" Actually, they are very real and they are VERY heavy, but I don't think we did any damage to Michelle in the taking of this picture. Some of the other poses however, she did have to hold for quite some time, and I'm pretty sure she was sore the next day. Hey, what can I say, it was my only chance to give the trainer a workout. :)
I had to take at least one that showed her beautiful smile. She talks a tough game and she'll get you into shape, but she's an encourager all the way because she's rooting for your success.
