Strength comes in many forms.
As a boudoir photographer, my goal has always been to empower and encourage women to redefine and rediscover their strength. I LOVE strong, independent women. I have always believed in empowering women to be the best version of themselves.
When I sponsored the RUFIT event in September I had the pleasure of watching competitors of all different levels of experience and backgrounds push themselves to their limits and cheer their fellow athletes on.
It was so motivating and so exciting to watch these individuals.
I have been on my own personal fitness journey, and it has been a mental battle just as much as a physical one.
You have to make the decision to show up. Whether you want to or not. You have to push through the pain. You have to push through the discomfort. You have to push through the own limits that you set for yourself.
There is an immense amount of pride and accomplishment that comes when you set a new personal record. For so long, I limited myself on what I could do. I never imagined I could lift as much as I do now. It took a lot of reflection, pushing through fear and self doubt, and sheer determination to get to where I am now.
Miss A started her crossfit journey many years ago. She is now a coach at Crossfit Chesapeake and I know that she has personally motivated many of my own friends.
Strong is sexy. Strong women are more powerful than they know.
I watched Miss A compete at RUFIT and I was so excited when I saw her standing on the winners podium!
I have to give a huge shout out to Crossfit Chesapeake for allowing us to shoot at their facility!
