Professionally Shot

In the past 6 months, I have been photographed twice professionally. The first was for our wedding where we spent a good while doing my hair and make-up and wearing a beautiful gown. This last time was a bit different. The preparations included:

745am:   wake up and dress in my winter running gear
800am:   6 mile run in the rain/snow, cold and wind with my girls plus one
930am:   meet with my additional runner turned photographer
1000am:  snap a bunch of photos in the cold on the shore of Lake Geneva

Not only was there no make-up, no hair, no outfit. I actually ran in the cold and snow for over an hour before I posed for my photos. This was all the brain child of one of the student's partners who is a photographer and asked me randomly if she could photograph me. Once she learned that I was a runner she told me she was inspired and wanted to photograph me after one of my runs. And not only would she photograph me, she would first run with me. I have to tell you, I had my doubts before and during, but after I saw her work, I was convinced.

Here are a couple of the shots. Pretty amazing.
