The second gymnast that I photographed in Dallas was Aly Raisman out of Boston. At first, I thought Aly was a little shy, but by the end of the session, she was requesting poses! She was a lot of fun and we had a great time shooting. In fact, I'd love to photograph her again with my whole hair/makeup team as I have some cool ideas that we could try once we have more time! (Of course now that Aly is a famous Gold medal gymnast, she might get sick of photoshoots fast.)
Here are some shots from our session in May...
Here are a couple of Art prints that my retoucher Jennifer and I worked on...(Mainly Jennifer as she is amazing!)
Aly has a great smile!
I loved getting these "natural" shots as athletes NEVER seem to get any of them and it's nice to see them just being themselves!
This one was Aly's request and I liked it! (Well except for all the ugly pool stuff around, but we made it work!)
And here are a few articles I found of my pics and Aly...
Congrats again Aly! Look forward to working with you again soon!
