if gumby was a super-hot girl, he would probably be kimberly snyder

i get a little de-motivated sometimes when i see somebody effortlessly do something that i know is crazy hard – but when i look at kimberly snyder do yoga it’s the exact opposite.  i’ve seen kimberly do yoga a few times, and i know the poses she does are crazy hard to do, but she makes them look so tranquil and smooth that it’s really inspiring and motivating.  like, it really makes me want to take time out of my day and do yoga.  most days, i get so busy and caught up in photography that my personal hygiene takes a hit, my fingernails get long and i forget to eat and blah blah… basically what i’m saying is that kimberly makes me want to find time that i don’t have and do something good for my skateboard-battered/horribly nourished body.  and speaking of nourishment, if you want to find out what kind of fuel she burns in her jet-fighter-like body, she shares her knowledge as a certified clinical nutritionalist in a health-and-beauty blog at kimberlysnyder.net.  somethin tells me that my daily dose of those extra dark “le petit ecolier” cookies (is anybody else addicted to these things like i am?) are scarce found on the pages.  but some tasty, less artery clogging options like cyan pepper immunity tea, kimberly’s raw pecan love pie, and banana soft serve with raw fudge sauce are all over that sucker.  plus there’s tips on how to keep your skin, nails, hair and pretty much your whole body healthy.  check it out.

shawn johnson

shawn was crazy easy to shoot.  i mean, most times i end up looking through the photos at the end of a shoot to see which ones are usable, then i make my selects from those.  but with shawn, every time the shutter opened it was a winner.  and that pretty much how it’s been for shawn lately – she just can’t stop winning.  she nailed down the gold on balance beam in the 2008 olympics in beijing (check out the standing backflip full twist at 2:07 – holy moly!) and just won dancing with the stars.  that’s pretty much a big deal.  especially when you have all that under your belt before 18.  when i was 18, i was living out of a VW bus eating little debbie snack cakes and drinking half-and-half out of the carton.

olympian jessica lopez

jessica lopez has been a gymnast since she was 3 years old.  that’s insane.  i mean, when she was learning how to tumble, i was learning to color inside the lines.  but all that training has paid off and has given her a laundry list of achievements, including going to beijing for the 2008 olympics.  and my coloring still sucks.
