My shoot with Deborah from Total Transformation Training was a perfect example of how photo shoots are collaborations. For one, I don't have the fitness training that she does, and we were trying to show off her fitness skills. For another reason, communication was so so important. I needed to tell her what was and what was and wasn't working, and we needed to talk through poses and locations to figure out what looked best. If we weren't able to communicate, and if just one of us were doing the decision making, we would have good poses in bad light, or good light with awkward poses.
By the way, her sons came along and were awesome pack mules that carried everything and helped their mom get to the different locations or into the correct poses.
Deborah was so much fun to work with! On top of that, she is an inspiration. She is working to raise and support her four sons on her own - and she is doing that by helping others to have stronger, healthier bodies. Find her at TTTresults.com
