Meet Danielle, she is a Vavoom Vet and has shot with us a total of three times! Read about her Vavoom experiences below! We love you Danielle!
This was my third time shooting at Vavoom. This time was different from the last, I was doing a calendar shoot, and it was everything I expected and more. I was nervous going into it because of the 13 shots, I had ideas for two. Heather makes everything so seamless and with her help I was able to pull off an amazing calendar.
The day after my shoot, life went back to normal, back to the grind of work and daily routines. A few weeks after my shoot, I competed in one of my first Crossfit Competitions and placed in the top 10!
Vavoom has changed me. After three shoots I know that, any time you are doubting who you are or feel like you can’t accomplish anything, shoot at Vavoom. Leaving the studio you can take on the world. My first shoot I did, I remember being so nervous, it was in the old studio, I had never done anything like it before and when I left there, I left with a mentality of eat your heart our Betty Draper. I had the confidence to conquer the world. My second shoot was shortly after my brother had passed away. My life was rocky, I was unstable. I did the shoot with my cousin and I remember wanting to reschedule because nothing mattered. In my mind, happiness was lost, love was lost, and life was just passing by. The morning of the shoot came, I sucked it up, faked a smile and drove to the City. We snapped a few shots and Heather took me back to look at the photos, and in one of them there was a random cherry. I didn’t shoot with cherries, but for some reason there was a cherry in my photo. I laughed because that cherry was the little piece of my brother. He was always cracking jokes, doing things out of the ordinary, anything to get you to crack a smile. That was what I needed. I needed to see that to remind me that life isn’t always going to be easy, but it has to go on. That reminder that the world does not end because of tragedy, but you have to remember to stop and laugh often and love always. I had to remember to live my life with a purpose, because he would not want it any other way. Which is always easier said than done, but sometimes we just need those little reminders and I was given that reminder that day. This past shoot was about 4 years after my previous one. This time it was different, my life was different, I was finally in a stable happy place, and I was doing this for not only myself but for someone who means the world to me. The one who has helped me find happiness and love again. And once again I left Vavoom with everything I needed to take on life!
