So it’s been a tad frigid here in Northeast Ohio, so why not post some warm beach photos to remind us that warm weather will be here before we know it (or at least that is what I’m telling myself! haha)  These photos are from late summer when Sara and I headed up to Mentor Headlands beach to get some fun shots in the sand and by the water.  Check out a few of our favorites below! 🙂

Action Shot!

Bear Crawls in the Sand. Rough!

If only I had the strength/power of this woman. She makes it look easy!

Wahoo!!! 🙂

Be sure to check news stands on June 20th for the July 2010 issue of Oxygen Magazine and you will find between the pages (page 134 to be exact!) one of my favorite fitness gals, Sara Bedrossian, in their “Future of Fitness” section.  Sara is soooo dedicated to keeping fit and helping others get/stay fit, it makes me so giddy to see her in this “bible” of women’s fitness magazine.

In case you need help knowing what to look for in the magazine aisle:

This cover will some day soon have Miss Sara B gracing it!

 

There she is! Of course they picked the best girl (and photo!) to go first!

Congrats girlie!  Can’t wait until the day I’m saying, “Ohmygawd, what fitness magazine has she NOT been in?!” Haha.

Do you ever wish you had the motivation and determination to look as fit as the models in all those fitness magazines?  I know I do, but those darn starbursts are always calling my name!!!  Well I recently met Katie, who just competed in her first figure competion (Liberman NPC Natural Ohio 2010), and it is very evident from the photos below that she HAD the will power [to resist ooey, gooey, chocolate chip cookies].  Because of all her hard work, she placed a very reputable 6th in her class…Wahoo! 

Here are some of my fav’s from our shoot.  (P.S. – editing these photos is the BEST diet in the world.  Guilt immediately set in as I munched on my sour patch kids while touching up the images.  They got shoved to the far corner of the cupboard after that! haha)

I see a future fitness model!

Powerful delts and pecs.

Is she not gorgeous?!

While preparing for a regional figure competition, Michelle asked if I would be willing to do another fitness photo session with her.  Of course I was more than happy to obliged!   Her hard work preparing for her competition definitely shows in the images below.  The girl’s got some killer abs and some awesome lats!  She can also show you how to get some fab physique too as she is a wonderful trainer.  If you want her contact info, let me know!

You may remember back in June I had the opportunity to take some fitness photos of my good friend Sara outside in the Cleveland Metroparks. (Check out the shoot here!)  We decided to meet up again a few weeks ago to take some more shots that she can add to her fitness portfolio.  Sara’s body is rockin’ and this shoot was just another reminder of why I need to get crackin’ with my routine at the gym! 😉

If you remember back in February of this year, I had the opportunity to work with Matt Caine for his calendar debut as Mr. September for the group 60 mile men.  The men in the group put out a calendar each year as part of their fundraising efforts to ultimately raises money to help support the Breast Cancer 3-Day.  I am honored that Matt chose me to take his photo! 

So this past June 10th, was the BIG reveal of the 2010 calendar and of all the photos that we took, here is the winning shot that made the spread:

Mr September 2010!

 If you are interested in seeing some of the other guys that made the cut for the 2010 calendar, or if you are interested in helping Matt with his fundraising efforts by buying one of the 100 calendars he’s obligated to sell, please send him an email at: mcaine1@kent.edu.  I’m sure he will GREATLY appreciate it!
