Hello everyone! Long time no posts… from me…. whoops! For some reason putting together blog posts is a real struggle for me. I’m a person who hates doing anything I HAVE to do, but DON’T have to do. You know what I mean? I would say it’s a big character flaw for me. I’m also a know it all, but that’s another story for another time. It feels good to be back on the blog and I have a bunch of other posts I am putting together at the moment before the crazy season begins again. So watch out for me!
I don’t know if many of you have heard of Simply Sadie Jane, but she is an incredible fitness blogger! I met Sadie at an Albion Fit fashion show, but it was very brief. When I really got to know Sadie was during a sweat session at the Albion Fit Soulstice Retreat. We were paired together in a little HIIT workout so she got to see me fall to my knees during pushups and watch my bad form on my squats thanks to my awkwardly long legs and high center of gravity. Luckily I was in pretty good shape at that time so I could kind of keep up with someone as amazing as her! Sadie is everything that you want in a person and blogger…. incredibly down to earth and sarcastic, genuinely nice, realistic, beautiful, and a hot bod that she works HARD for (she lost 80 pounds years ago and has kept it off).
Sadie was nice enough to let me come up with the concept of her shoot. At the moment I was feeling very inspired by the vibrant colors that Kodak Portra 800 gives off. So I based the shoot around that. I had her and her family wear jewel tones and told her to put her husband in tweed. She hired a stylist and the rest is history. We had a great time taking these photos…. other than the INSANE amount of wind that made the kids hate life… but other than that…. pretty good ha! As you can see Sadie is no stranger to the camera and it loves her! Throughout this shoot I have both color and black and white film.
