In 2009, aged 39, I joined a gym after becoming so unhappy with my weight. I worked with a personal trainer for 22 weeks, then carried on alone. Just over a year later I had lost 63 lbs and felt amazing. I fell in love with running and for a few years enjoyed a healthier life. A change in personal circumstances ended my healthy lifestyle, as I concentrated more on changing career.
Late on in 2014 I was back in the gym and out running twice a week, also reaching 86 lengths in the swimming pool in one visit! I was flying and loving every minute of it until 9th May 2015, when my life took a dramatic change.
I was seriously injured in a head on car crash, suffering extensive injuries to my chest, shoulder and spine. Read more in my Blog, "Why Fitness Photography", as it explains why including fitness photography is so important to me.
After two life changing weight losses
it is a personal disappointment to have lost my love for the gym, even though it is to follow my dream of becoming a full time professional photographer.
Although 2020 has turned into a very negative year, my confidence has grown significantly, and after almost 3 years I have started to believe in myself.
I have already been published over 20 times which I take great pride in, and it is a pleasure to see a young model really flourish after the two shoots we did to boost her portfolio.
