August started out with a quick trip to SoBe, that's right! Miami! Where William Uz of Evolution Fitnezz and I finally found some time to work together! We started our shoot off with a fabulous glamour street shoot, followed by some pool shots. Early the next morning, we finished up the shoot on the beach for a beautiful sunrise set or two! It was an amazing good time and I highly recommend William. Not only is he a great photographer, he is also incredibly sweet and professional. I've included some great images from the shoot including a behind-the-scenes peek!
Not too long ago, I modeled in the "Fashion's Night Out" fashion show at the Northbrook Court Mall where I modeled for such stores as White House Black Market. I always have an amazing time when I am around the other URSupermodels that I work with. The girls and guys are so sweet and professional. It can make any gig a blast!
On that same note, next weekend I will be shooting for the Winter Swimsuit Issue of Fashion Chicago Magazine. This will be the third time I will be working with the great Azhar Harris. I am indebted to him for his commitment to the Chicago Fashion scene.
As for the rest of my time, I continue to work fervently in the gym, training and taking it to the next level. I have a great fitness routine that I am working on so am very hopeful to one day get that on the stage soon. I continue to train client with http://www.1on1fitnesstraining.com and have developed my own Hip Hop Aerobics class there. Nonetheless, I am very busy...I get a little antsy when I am sittin' still! People often ask me how do I stay motivated? A good bit from my friends...and a new Lullelemon outfit does not hurt at all! LOL!!!
Also, as a sidenote, I am also a Virus Specialist. This H1N1 Swine Flu is definitely keeping my company in business. Sad to say but true. lol. Unfortunately, my work involves the use of animal kidneys so that 's always something I've had trouble coming to grips with. As you know, I am a deep animal lover and environmentalist. It is definitely a tough line to walk between matters involving animals, people and the earth. By the
end of the year, I plan to be working more closely with the World Wildlife Fund and more locally, the Poplar Creek Prairie Stewards Organization in my area. This organization works to keep the natural prairie environment in tact as much as possible in accordance with man.
Wish me luck!
