Some Photos

by Meghann on November 18, 2011

Remember that crazy, amazing photo shoot I had last month with the crazy, amazing (and very talented!) Cat?!

Well, I finally got the final photos back last week and am a bit obsessed with the finished product. Cat did an incredible job capturing the gorgeous scenery and even succeeded in making me look like a ‘real’ triathlete.

If you’re looking for an out-of-the-norm Christmas gift for your triathlon obsessed significant other, may I suggest a triathlon-themed professional photo session? I think these type of photos are something every swimmer/cyclist/runner should have done once. It sure beats race photos, that’s for sure. ;)

Heck, even if they’re not triathletes, I believe everyone should have a fun photo session, period. It’s a great confidence booster and every girl deserves a chance to feel pretty! Just look for a local photographer who is starting out and willing to cut you a deal. (And if you’re in the Orlando area see Cat and tell her I sent you. She’s a triathlete herself and really knows her stuff!)

Of course, the running ones were my favorite. FINALLY some photos where I’m running and not looking like I’m on the verge of death. ;)

I had the photos done because I was in need of some professional head shots for various blog projects. Again, Cat exceeded all expectations and took some beautiful professional-esque shots.

My favorite. :)

Alright, enough photos of me. This post is bordering on narcissistic. Who am I kidding? Bordering? It’s flat out there. But, it’s rare when I’m the one the camera is focused on, so it was fun while it lasted. :)

THANK YOU Cat for the incredible photos! You’re talent never ceases to amaze me! You Rock!

The pics look great!!!! Makes me want to get it done too! :) I’ve only taken 1 good race photo that I can remember and it was very recently. I almost bought it because it was actually decent, but alas the $40 price tag for 1 pic was more than I was willing to pay.

Great shots! Love the one in the swimsuit with the sunlight on your face. The one of you sitting on the dock really shows your muscle tone. Seriously buffed thigh muscle.? Good for you! Glad you have the photos when your 52 you will be able look back at yourself in your prime. I’m 52 and wish I had reconized that I looked good when I was younger Instead of being so hard on myself for not being perfect. Celebrate, and be proud.

I agree. It’s fun to have professional photos taken every once and awhile. I especially get having head shots for blog projects, it definitely makes it more professional. Curious though what made you opt for a triathlon themed shoot. I don’t think I’d want myself photographed in workout gear.
