Preview Photos: First-Ever Zumba Shoot!

One of the things I love about photography is how I'm always learning or experiencing something new while doing my work.

A few months ago, I received a surprise email from a wonderful D.C.-based Zumba teacher, Melanie, who asked if I could pencil her in for a spring photo shoot.

I of course, said yes, but had one little problem -- I had ZERO experience shooting anything Zumba related. Melanie, the total doll that she is, still wanted to take the leap with me and we settled on a date.

Now, several months after our initial conversations, I'm so glad she trusted me to capture her amazing energy -- the photos were STUNNING. Here's a preview:

A Preview of Spring: Sneak Peak at my Grip the Mat Spring Shoot

Oh, spring! You're so pretty with your flowers and sunsets and warmer weather. Why can't it be like this all year?

Speaking of spring, a few days ago I hosted a spring-themed yoga/lifestyle shoot for a few of the D.C.-based staff members of the yoga events start-up Grip the Mat (yeah, the same Grip the Mat I've been shooting for for a while now!).

While only a few of the Grip the Mat staffers could make it out to the shoot, the sunset-kissed results were simply stunning IMHO.

Here's a sneak at three images I captured. Many more to come!
