Happy Peak Week

So it's finally "peak week" for the Cutler Classic and I just had my photoshoot last night! It was so much fun and getting to see some of the pictures during the shoot reignited my excitement for this Saturday! I feel I've done all I can to prepare and am feeling a lot more confident in my ability and preparation going into this show than I did for the Thaw. It's still so crazy to me to FINALLY be competing at the show I've had my mind set on for over a year now! I've gotten a new suit, gotten extensions, booked the spray tan, prepped my meals and now it just feels like a waiting game until show time! 

In the last couple of weeks since school has ended for the summer, I've really been able to shift my focus from preparing and studying for finals to making sure I've fine-tuned everything I was given feedback on from the last show. Mostly posing...which is still proving to be my weakness, but is improving!

Here's some sneak peak shots from the shoot last night, but more shots are to come as soon as my amazing photographer Ksenia of Ksenia Photography has a chance to edit them!

Just Another Monday

It's so gratifying once you finally find your niche in life, and I love that I'm actually excited to wake up around 5am most mornings! These were some of my clients from today, and they all reminded me again of what it is I've worked so hard for. They hire me to help change their lives without realizing that they're simultaneously changing mine. I absolutely love what I do and despite how long of a journey it seems like it was to figure out what it is I'm meant to do, I wouldn't change any of it for the world. I am so appreciative of everyone who has given me the opportunity to prove myself; whether it be my individual clients or the companies I work for, I couldn't be more grateful! I hope to continue building my resumè and client base and eventually be able to have my own business and open a gym. I don't know if that will happen in Boston, but for the time being I am certainly content with waking up every day to get to work with these (and more) awesome people! I hope some of you guys are reading this, and again, thank you for accepting my craziness and for most of you allowing for me to take pictures today! :)
