This is Katya. She is not only a professional makeup artist, but also a fitness and Yoga enthusiast as well. This year she is training for her first marathon too! She and I have worked together as a team for years behind the camera, it was great collaborating with her to capture these images. You can follow her at @katyagudaevalife.
This shoot was done in West Seattle in the early morning light. Shaded from the sun for most of our shoot the light quality is magical. A mixture of cool tones and warm tones being reflected from the sun across the Puget Sound. A magical location.
I love photographing athletes. Celebrating their hard work and dedication is inspiring to me as an artist.
