My Photos in Miranda Esmonde-White’s Aging Backwards

Aging Backwards | Jessica Blaine Smith

As a portrait photographer, you get to photograph some pretty cool stuff. And sometimes you have to be pretty patient in waiting until you can share said cool stuff! If you have heard me talk anything health-related, you know that I am totally obsessed with Essentrics. I have had a couple of their DVDs for years and then last year, I was lucky enough to attend a couple of their classes with Sahra Esmonde-White in Toronto. Last September I was in Montreal and met up with Sahra for brunch. At the end of it, she asked if I would be interested in doing some photos for an upcoming book that her mother, Miranda, was writing. A month later, the Essentrics team was at my studio for two days of fitness photo-taking! We shot over four hundred poses with three models and it was a lot of fun. Fast forward a year and the book – Aging Backwards – is finally available on book shelves! I began reading it two days ago and cannot put it down. And I must say that it is pretty darn cool to see my images in it.Aging Backwards | Jessica Blaine SmithAging Backwards | Jessica Blaine SmithAging Backwards | Jessica Blaine SmithAging Backwards | Jessica Blaine SmithAging Backwards | Jessica Blaine SmithAging Backwards | Jessica Blaine Smith

Blogging used to be a big part of my photography business but as we are now in the era of Instagram, my focu s has moved there. Given that I have been working as a photography for a number of years, however, I wanted to keep my blog live for any of you who are looking for past posts.
