Athleta asked me to photograph Sarah Herron in their new "athleisure" line, while we traveled across the western part of the United States. It was a simple ask, "shoot our clothes in epic locations, while not emphasizing the adventure aspect."
Sunrises and sunsets are photographers dream time, but for me, it's the moment right before the sun breaks. This soft light provides a dreamy feel and also makes skin and clothes really look luminescent. We found a small knoll that overlooked the Grand Canyon and waited for the sun. We tried jumping, peering and looking out in contemplation.
I really think this photo captures not only the essence of the Grand Canyon, but also what Athleta is working towards.
