Kara recently celebrated a birthday. And what do you do for your birthday when you’re leading a healthy lifestyle and focused on your well being? Why, you celebrate with a fitness photo shoot!
Kara is an amazing woman. She exudes strength in so many ways – mentally, emotionally, and physically. She talks about her weaknesses and acknowledges them without complaining. Instead of moaning and groaning about them, she puts a plan in place tackle them. This ability to pinpoint her weaknesses is incredible to watch and see her work through. She leads a group of woman at my gym on Thursday night in learning Olympic lifting moves without being in a testosterone infused environmental. Kara is – to me – a true inspiration and woman who has managed to share her passion and help others become the best version of themselves.
Kara asked me about a month ago if I could do a photo shoot with her. She had done one a few years ago and it just didn’t feel right. I – of course – was quite anxious about it. I had never been asked to do such. So I scoured the web looking for ideas to get a vision of what I wanted that also matched what she desired. I even created a Pinterest board just for this session. I said yes. We emailed back and forth. I asked her a TON of questions – most of them around what she didn’t like – so I could make sure she got what she wanted. We planned a lot of it…and I think she nailed it.
Cheers to another year wiser, stronger, and happier. Cheers to an amazing woman that I am so fortunate to know and honored to work with. Happy birthday to you, Kara!
