Capturing the Coolness of Fitness and Longtime Friend

A couple of weeks ago, a longtime dear friend of mine asked my wife and I to photograph her the day after her participation in the OCB Southern Rockies Figure Competition.  We had a total blast!  My vision of the shoot was twofold.  First to capture her physical fitness in raw dramatic form with a hint of fashion flair.  Second was to capture a representation of her love for fitness associated with the activities in which she loves to engage.  Pictures after the jump...
