This was shot with fitness model Rafael Safira. She's not only a fitness model, but also a business woman, trainer and mother. She's working at a couple of gyms in Amsterdam in off season, and preparing for the fitness competitions. She has great plans, or encouraging fellow mothers to get back into shape as well as organising large fitness events, and starting coaching programs. It was really inspiring to shoot with her and see her strength and dreams.
This shoot was done in Amsterdam-North by the NDSM, because we wanted to get a cool industrial feel to the photos! Even thought it was shot in the winter, and it was quite cold, she endured the whole time shooting and did really well. For some more coolness some fog rolled in that morning and made the photos even better.
