Fitness in Muskoka | A Personal Trainer Inspires

I recently had the pleasure to photograph a very inspiring lady. Her name is Leslie Cockwell and she is the proud owner and personal trainer at the "Limberlost Gym". Located in the beautifully scenic area of Dwight, Muskoka. ON. Leslie is a past bodybuilding champion and former member of the Commonwealth swim team. 

The photoshoot was an idea to document Leslie and her love for all things fitness. Once we got to chatting, I soon found out that she was about to have a fairly major surgery procedure. Knowing this surgery was going to sideline her from training for 3-5 months, I really wanted to capture Leslie in a way to show the dedication and hard work she had accomplished..

After previewing the images from the shoot, Leslie really is looking forward to a post-op photoshoot, which I am so looking forward to doing. The following images really capture both sides of Leslie in a way that shows her physical fitness dedication as well as her love of laughing and enjoying life.

A Teenager and Fall Colours - A Muskoka Photoshoot

Fall is one of my favourite seasons of the year, especially here in the Muskoka area of Ontario. There is no denying that this makes for wonderful backdrops for a photoshoot. Add that together with a fun and energetic teenager who embraces her youth to the maximum. This is the perfect recipe to create amazing photographs. Kendra (model) was such a pleasure to work with, her energy and natural confidence in front of the camera made for a super fun afternoon of shooting. I hope you enjoy the images below, don't forget to leave your comments below.
