Some time ago I discovered this awesome fitness model who is a real grand prize! Michelle Miller (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=118250) is an occupational therapist from the DC area. She's also a superb fitness competitor who ranks high and recently won a 1st place on the Masters Figure Competition. During the competition season you will find her participating in the APC body building circuit. And when she's not competing, or working as a therapist, or modeling, you will find her at the gym. In general, she works out real hard and sticks to a strict diet which allows her to be the best she can be.
when I first took at look at her I immediately discovered the beauty within her. Aside from being extremely beautiful as a woman, she has the most wonderful personality. She is very easy going and will work hard to "get the shot". She has a great personality, she's funny and extremely driven.
When I first met her I realized quickly that I would want to get a bit away from the standard "fitness" images and create some new material by way of alluring images that would show some playfulness and natural sexiness. Needless to say, she nailed it.
Below a few samples from some of our work which has been a mix of styles including boudoir and fitness photos.
The fit body of a beautiful woman has to be shot with emphasis on proper lighting. Contrast is key to help show her beautiful curves.

Be on the lookout for some more posts about Michelle. I hope I will soon be posting some real neat "composite" images we worked on together some time ago.
Keeping it real!
