During my trip to California last month I was introduced to Kelly Sabrina. Kelly was in the Palm Springs Classic fitness show that I was covering with photography and Kelly would also shoot a photo session with me on Sunday before I flew back to Texas. All I can say is.....what a treat. This woman holds a quiet confidence in a room and is somewhat soft spoken. But as I learned more about her being well traveled, educated, musical and artistic I knew that she was one of a kind. Did I mention she's also a certified Mortician?
Kelly rocked the stage at the fitness show on Saturday as expected. Then came Sunday. We (a group of us traveled from LA to Palm Springs together - Thanks Sharon Polsky who was a great host and coordinator!) traveled back to LA in the wee hours of the morning only to meet up at Pole Position Fitness in Long Beach to start Sunday's photo shoots.
Kelly was last to shoot but well worth the wait. She brought me something different. Not glamour, not awesome make up or hair, not gorgeous clothing and the like. Not saying she wasn't lovely....just saying THOSE things were not the focus.
What she brought was more beautiful.......her talented body and the beauty it could produce. I wasn't even ready. LOL She started jumping around at one point and I had to slow her down so I could figure out how I would light and capture her poetic motions. In some of the photos you can see we are in a back room of a studio but her fluid motions and jumps shine through anyway.
I moved her back to the main room of the studio and she delighted me with more flexibility and power all bundled up together. That is why I am naming her "Dynamo." Dynamo by definition is an electrical generator that produces a direct current.....and she definitely produces her own power.
Kelly....it was a pleasure meeting and working with you.
