I first met McKayla when I photographed her for USA Today during the USA Olympic Media Summit last May.(You can see some of those photos in the “SPORTS” section of this blog.) We have stayed in touch since then and I have been so happy to see her doing so well in both gymnastics as well as acting/modeling! McKayla and her mom happened to be in town for an autograph signing a couple of weeks ago and we were both able to arrange our schedules in order to have a short and fun photoshoot.
She is a total pro and one of my favorite people to photograph! She can pull off just about any look and I think will do very well in Hollywood! We actually did a few looks and tried to go for something a bit different than what McKayla has usually done. As you can see, McKayla rocked out the session and I think we accomplished the goal well!
As usual, the wonderful hair/makeup artist Amber Lynne did an amazing job with McKayla!! Alycia also happened to grab a few behind the scenes shots and so I thought I would put a little video together for everyone.
And here are a few photos from the session…
And as you can see, McKayla wasn’t impressed at first, but by the end of the shoot, I had won her over. 😉
