It’s been a super crazy month full of weddings and photoshoots for me, but I wanted to get back to my series of behind the scenes photos from the Olympic Media Summit I photographed for USA Today and US Presswire back in May. The next athlete in the series is Team USA Soccer star Alex Morgan.
I didn’t know what to expect when Alex walked in as I knew she had some modeling experience and even posed in body paint in the last SI Swimsuit issue. I guess I expected the worse that she would be hard to deal with and just go through the motions, but I was pleasantly surprised! (In fact, when she walked in, I jokingly asked her “what, no body paint today?” She laughed and told me only if I had an extra 12 hours to spare.)
Alex was a lot of fun, very charming, and looked great in front of the camera! Even though I could tell that she was tired from a long day of interviews and photoshoots, she did everything I asked of her and the photos came out fabulous!
Thanks again to Darryl Briggs for the behind the scenes photos…Here are a few…
My retoucher Jennifer and I worked on a few “signature prints” like the first one here.
Several national articles ran my photos of Alex, but here is one from USA Today…
Alex pulled off both the fun shots as well as serious…
And showing her the cool results!
If you were a fly on the wall…(Way too much gel in my hair that day, but that’s what happens when I only get 2 hours sleep!) =)
LOVE this one!
After the shoot. Yes, another embarrassing posing shot of me.(I could fill a whole book of the shots that my assistants and second shooters have of me this way!)
Once again, Alex was a pleasure to work with and I am wishing her and her teammates the best of luck in London!
