    As I type this, she is competing at Muscle Beach (and hopefully soaking up a whole lot of pride at this moment). To celebrate all her hard-work and dedication we did a few fitness photos. I’m so happy she decided to document her transformation.  Gla14-050 web Gla14-055 web Gla14-064 web Gla14-075 web Gla14-083 web

    Onto family photos… Linda told me they have never had extended family photos done before! Grandma and Grandpa were so full of pride throughout this session. It was so touching to see how much these photos and their family means to them. Gla14-111 web Gla14-122 web Gla14-125 web Gla14-129 web Gla14-135 web Gla14-105 webGla14-150 web Gla14-161 web

    Chaundra’s Journey to Success

    Meet the incredibly strong, vibrant, driven, kind & beautiful Chaundra..

    Sar14-188 web

    I’m so happy she found her way to me so I could photograph her amazing accomplishment. She also happens to be the proud Mom of 2.

    I love hearing other’s story, in her own words: “I set out on a journey back in Sept 2013 toward improved health and vitality. I was unhappy with my weight and was ready to make change for myself. As I began to lose weight and improve my physique I found myself falling in love with fitness. My ultimate goal evolved into wanting to step on stage at a figure competition with the best body I could. On June 7th I realized my goal and walked proudly on stage with a brand new physique, outlook on life, strength and confidence. Success!” Chaundra

    Chaundra’s hard work paid off, she placed 4th in her figure class! An amazing accomplishment after all of her hard work. Congrats girl!

    Chaundra and I wanted an image showcasing motion and colour that symbolized freedom, strength, and the courage it takes to conquer a goal. This last image was a collaboration towards those feelings…

    Thank you Chaundra for making the trip to see me. You should be so proud of yourself. You are ridiculously amazing and have inspired me simply in the time we spent together.

    We met at a Mom’s playgroup years ago. Yup, this stunning woman is the proud Mom to three amazing kids.

    When she told me her plans to walk the stage at Northern’s in Edmonton this year, I knew she would give her whole heart and soul to this journey. She’s one tough chick with amazing motivation and drive.

    I am so honoured to have been able to capture all her tenacity and hard work. I adore her, no matter how much time passes between seeing each other, we just pick up where we left off. Genuine friendship without pressure is a gift; I’m very thankful Bon Bon is in my life.

    Along with photos of her physique, she also wanted photos with the love of her life…her husband Trevor. Together they support one another through life’s goals and dreams. Powerful team…
