Lauren, owner of Pure Barre Pentagon City, reached out to me in January to see if I could take headshots for her and her Pure Barre team. I quickly said yes! She and I share a mutual friend, and I was introduced to Pure Barre at that friend's bachelorette party where Lauren led an impromptu class in the Airbnb we rented. Let's just say I lifted, toned and burned as well as I could after an evening of bachelorette festivities.
Fast forward to March 2017 when all of Lauren's Barre-tenders and Barre Instructors were available to meet for photos at their new space in Arlington. Her studio is right next to a recently-opened Whole Foods so you don't have to worry about getting hungry after class - you can get organic treats on your way home as a reward!
I had a blast capturing the images you see below - and these are just some of my favorites! I'd never done headshots or photos like this previously so it was a fun challenge - and isn't the space beautiful? I only wish I lived closer so I could lift, tone and burn more often!
