I think one of my favorite things about meeting people and doing photo shoots has always been the layers to people. You learn more about people unlike yourself, you learn more about different communities, you learn to counter your own expectations. Such was the case with Abbey. Not Abigail. Two names which bring together entirely different images of people. Neither of which does Abbey justice. From look at her Instagram, I knew she was into fitness. I knew she was a competitor. To sum her up though as that, would be to do her a disservice. She is gracious, nice, authentic, entrepreneur, fitness coach, and competitor. And that's just her side stuff.
Abbey met me in The Woodlands, Texas by the waterway. We shot approximately 3 outfits from the selection she had of different fashionable items. We only planned 2. She was a great sport about the long walk down the waterway as I scouted for more interesting locations for us to shoot. I honestly think the best location ended up being open shade under a bridge. It made for some excellent lighting that right brought definition to her abs.
It was a pleasure getting to talk to Abbey about self conciousness, body image, NPC Competition, personality types (She is type-A) and her plans for the future. The only unfortunate thing is her moving to Dallas. I'll have to make plans to incorporate more travel into my schedule so I can continue to keep cool people like Abbey around.
