How a Strong, Supportive Group of Women Can Help you Succeed: Brisbane Fitness Photography

It’s not often that I get to work with a group of ladies that are their prime physical health ready to compete in a bodybuilding contest. Usually I work with athletes, weight loss transformation clients and ladies in boudoir style capturing them individually.

Having competed in the past, I didn’t have a ‘team’ of ladies to help me through or offer support and after meeting this unreal group of women, I wish I had of. I was blown away when I met the ladies of Team HFS, run by PT Joey Cantlin. 5 unreal, beautiful, happy and supportive women banding together to celebrate their achievements with a photoshoot.

The vibe of these ladies was just incredible! The smiles, the laughs, those bodies haha During their competition prep, they have come together as a team for support, to help each other through the ups and downs and also created a close-nit social group from a shared interest.

I am now pushing for ladies to collaborate together and book a shoot with friends to celebrate achievements, friendships and reaching a goal together. It’s a great way to stay accountable and also acts as an unreal support group to help you reach your goals.

So lets say yes to more body confidence, women supporting women, healthy bodies, prioritising your health and fitness and sharing this love with others, celebrating your successes and documenting this journey with a photoshoot.

As one of Brisbane’s fitness, boudoir and beauty photographers, we specialise in individual and group photoshoots, capturing your hard work and physiques. See some of my favourites below of the shoot <3

"What you get by achieving your goal is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals"

I was lucky enough to shoot with Bec twice over her bodybuilding competition season and loved watching her grown as a person and her confidence shine.

In our 2 seperate 2 hour sessions we created an incredible set of imagery….

.....Fitness, Fashion, Boudoir, Beach & Poolside!

Bec is so beautiful, humble and a pleasure to work with, she blew me away. She's had a very successful season in figure and also getting back into competing in weight lifting and so glad we could work together on creating a variety of content for her social media as well as memories to keep for a lifetime.

Why invest in a fitness photoshoot? Brisbane Fitness & Weight Loss Transformation Photography

Last week I captured the stunning Stacey after recently competing in Sydney at the WBFF bodybuilding show. She has one of the most unreal physiques and proportions I have seen and an absolute pleasure to photograph. 

Being a past figure competitor, I know what it takes to get to this level of fitness and conditioning. A takes a lot of hard work, heavy weights, meal prepping, tracked macros and calories, posing practice, sacrifices in your social life, long days at work followed by exhausting gym sessions..... And the list goes on!

But when you reach your goal of stepping on stage and you reward yourself with a photoshoot to capture your journey, you realise..... it was all worth it! Capturing this moment in your life where you have put so much focus, time and determination is worth the investment - not only for yourself but for future generations, your kids, your family. This is part of your legacy.

The Raw Emotion of a Bodybuilders Competition Day

Have you ever looked at a bodybuilder and been fascinated by their physique, their dedication and motivation? Life Portraits, Brisbane Fitness Photographers, take you behind the scenes into the bodybuilding world....

Life Portraits are taking their viewers on a journey behind the scenes into the bodybuilding world by offering portrait fitness packages in the form of candid competition day photography, capturing the true and raw emotion of the competitor. We showcase their hand crafted physique by capturing behind the scenes candid moments on competition day, documenting those health and fitness memories for a lifetime.

I recently was commissioned by competitor Jordan and his family to capture the behind the scenes moments of his first competition at the ICN Bodybuilding Competition. I came away from the day feeling motivated, my happiness tank full and so honoured to be a part of his day. It was Jordan's first competition and he did an amazing job and should be so proud! 

Take a journey through the emotions, the preparation, the tanning, the posing practice, the pump up, the intense focus and the presence he brings to the stage in the images below. I love being a part of this journey and capturing such a personal aspect of someone's fitness journey. Having competed myself, you are so stressed and focused on getting on stage that once the event has passed, you forget the moments in between and what you looked like. That is why I love to capture this, as the competitors put in months of dedication to their comp prep, why not capture this for a lifetime?

LP Fitness captures personal fitness photoshoots, weight loss transformations, behind the scenes of bodybuilding competitions, couple fitness portraits and fitness branding. See more at Brisbane Fitness Photography at
