Around mid-morning we started in on some bike shots. She was really great at looking race ready with the hint of happy.
I asked her to sprint back and forth over and over. Each time yelling something, elongate your stride, run longer, run shorter, move your arms, keep your chin down – anything I could ask her I did and she obliged without a single peep. She was such a trooper even though a lot of what I was asking wasn’t exactly natural running form. But it is was worth it when we ended up with that perfect stride, both feet off the ground – born to RUN!
At the end of the day we went to one of my favorite bright spots, Credo Cafe. Check it out if you haven’t been, it’s a non-profit coffee house (like the anti-starbucks). The people that work there were more than happy to let us wrap up our shoot at one of their tables.
