Colleen has also lost nearly 60 lbs in the last few years with the help of her (and now my) trainer Sarah at Success Personal Training in Maplewood. Way to go Colleen!
What was also really awesome was that she and Sarah asked me if I would be interested in taking some pre-show photos and also going to see the show with them and all of Colleen's other supporters. I happily accepted. Capturing all that hard work and strength in photographs was an honor for me.
I had a great time taking the pictures at the workout studio. The show itself was an eye-opening experience. These women work so hard and I had no idea it was such a popular hobby (not sure if hobby is the right word here!) There were tons of people in the audience, big groups of women supporting the women on stage as well as their husbands and families. I managed to grab a few photos at the show that I will share here as well.
Colleen did awesome for her first show and actually won 2nd place in one of her categories. That's a huge deal!
Here are some photos from the day yesterday!
