When Bess contacted me to photograph a day on the beach with her, I couldn’t have been more excited! She went to school in North Carolina, played a Division I college sport, and her longtime boyfriend is a baseball player! We have SO much in common! More importantly, Bess is also a fellow blogger! I am proud to introduce you to the beautiful writer behind Bess Be Fit! Bess Be Fit details out the journey of Bess to stay fit and live a healthy life after leaving the athletic world of college sports. In Bess’ own words:
“I played soccer in college at Wake Forest University and after a lifetime of playing sports and training practically every day of the week, I suddenly had a lot of free time on my hands. I wanted fitness to still remain an important part of my life, so I started my blog, Bess Be Fit, as a way of holding myself accountable and documenting my life in the process. I aim to eat healthy but don’t deprive myself of treats, as you’ll see on a regular basis if you read my blog. I like to workout and enjoy so many different types of exercise from running to yoga to cross-training and strength training. Anything that lets me move and sweat and feel alive I love! I want to help others on their fitness journey and will soon be offering online nutrition guidance and exercise plans through my blog so I can do just that!”
This Wednesday, I had the opportunity to photograph Bess by the ocean in Long Branch! The weather was amazing and Bess…SO BEAUTIFUL!
Bess is fun, outgoing, and all around such a sweet person! She really was a joy to photograph.
Bess is a Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine. She hopes to share her same love for being active and also loving delicious, healthy food!
The sunset on Wednesday was so pretty! Pink and blue tones filled the sky as it slowly dipped below the horizon.
Seriously Bess?! You are GORGEOUS!!! To read more about this talented woman, head over to Bess Be Fit today. HAPPY FRIDAY!
