Personal / Motivational Photoshoot { Jill, Confederation Park & Baker Park, Calgary AB }

I was super happy when Jill messaged me to see if I’d be interested in shooting some motivational, personal portraits for her. I loved the idea from the very start!

She’s been on a personal journey to lose weight, become more active and eat well, but what really stirred up this awesome idea in her mind was the fact that in the coming weeks, she will be kicking up her journey into high-gear and starting to work with a personal trainer! We discussed shooting some portraits now to serve as the “before” visuals, then portraits in 6 months time, then again in a year to show all of the amazing progress I know she is going to make.

We decided to use some fun props for her shoot to help bring to life her goals, what she has achieved so far that she should be proud of, and how she will positively approach her journey moving forward. Didn’t she do the best job on her adorable motivational signs ?!

If you’d like to follow Jill’s journey and follow her progress, you can visit her blog, or follow her on Twitter.

The “Keep Going” message was something AWESOME that we randomly stumbled across while wandering down the river paths at Baker Park. Who wrote it or when, we have no idea, but it was absolutely and perfectly fitting for the photos we were there to create!


Make sure to leave this amazing and inspiring woman some love!
