Last week I had the pleasure of doing a fitness shoot with one of my daughter's friends @iz_fit_ . The shoot was a gift from Izzy's Mum as a reward for all her hard work and commitment to her school work during lockdown. Izzy had wanted to do a shoot to get content for her impressive Instagram feed and possible attract brands to offer sponsorship or ambassadorial roles.
I met Izzy and her mum at Westminster Lodge running track in St Albans Verulamium Park and we spent 2 fantastic hours making the most of the park's fitness facilities to show off Izzy's athleticism and dedication to her art. The first "warm up" shots were taken on the running track with Izzy moving through a series of stretching poses. I was both surprised and delighted at the ease at which she posed for the camera and how comfortable and totally in the zone she was. This was the first time Izzy had taken part in a professional photoshoot but I could easily have been fooled into thinking she was a seasoned pro in front of the camera.
After spending an hour at the running track and shooting a couple of different sets on the track and by the discus/ shot put nets, we moved on to the outdoor gym area of the park. This is where Izzy really came into her own and started clambering, climbing and holding the most amazing shapes and poses on the climbing wall and other available equipment. This is a girl who is at absolute ease with her physique, strength and ability and made my job easy!
