No, I didn’t photograph headshots for the “Friday” YouTube Rebecca Black. I photographed the much cooler Rebecca Black the personal trainer from right here in Columbus. If you’re from Central Ohio, chances are good you may have seen her on the local news or TMZ that the fan pages for each Rebecca had merged into one page. The local Rebecca is a certified personal trainer and also a fitness bikini competitor. Needless to say there was a bit of confusion on Facebook as to which Rebecca’s page people were following.
I initially “met” Rebecca on Twitter. After some tweets back and forth, I found out she grew up not far from where I did and I knew people who graduated from high school with her – such a small world! We have met in person a few times now and she’s great. Rebecca has such a fun personality and is truly dedicated to helping people improve their bodies and lifestyle. She will soon be opening Bexa Body Fitness in Westerville and I can’t wait to see it. Better yet, I need to join so she can get my butt in shape! She’ll be offering boot camps, zumba, yoga, personal training and a lot more. She currently has a blog called Strong Body by Rebecca that offers more information about her training and also some great tips for getting and staying health.
I had an opening in my schedule and asked Rebecca if she was interested in modeling for some lifestyle and headshot photos. We had to reschedule, but the new date ended up being the nicest day of Indian Summer. It was 70° that day, the sun was shining and no one was out at the park in Gahanna where we were. Since she has already modeled in the past, it was such an easy session, Rebecca knew what the best poses were for her body and figure. Plus she’s so darn pretty, there’s no way she could take a bad photo. Here are a few of my favorites from the session!
