IgniteGirl Blog Takeover by Hannah: Behind-the-Scenes Shooting “The IgniteGirls Life” Exercise Glossary
Hey IgniteGirls! It’s good to be back with y’all again!
In my first “blog takeover” I wrote about what life is like as an intern here at IgniteGirls. I stuck to the basics then, but today I get to tell you all about the occasional spontaneous expansion of my job description.
Keri is a natural when it comes to fitness & being on camera. But the last 9 months with Baby Peyton’s impending arrival, there has been a lifestyle change as far as working out and photo-shoots go for Keri. Well, that’s where I come in. One day Keri & I are in the office discussing the exercise glossary for The IgniteGirls Life e-book then one idea and a few days later, I’m IgniteGirls apparelled-up and camera ready.
I truly do love fitness and actually had a stint in the on-camera arena, so between Keri’s initiative and creativity, we worked together to shoot the entire exercise glossary for the IgniteGirls Life book, featuring yours-truly as the fitness model and Coach K as photog-genius.
The entire shoot, all three phases of exercises, took a little less than 3 hours. The 3 phase structure starts with a beginner level and gets progressively harder. That would make sense in all other respects, but as far as shooting went, by phase 3 when we were several hours in, finally reaching the most difficult exercises made it harder to keep a happy “this isn’t burning a bit” smile on my face.

This wall was almost painted white for the purposes of shooting. But, the tan stayed. We did change up the apparel for each phase- all IgniteGirls swag tanks of course!
The most difficult thing about the shoot? Keeping my elbows from hyper-extending. I was a gymnast when I was younger, so that worked then. But now, my abnormally bent elbows would just look look wrong. Keri’s frequent words, “Um, Hannah, the elbows.” It happens. 😉
Shooting the glossary pictures really was a blast. It definitely gave me a real feel of ALL the phases in The IgniteGirls Life e-book. Any questions on the moves? I’ve gotcha covered.
