When I got pregnant with my first baby, I figured I’d probably never do fitness modeling again. How would I get back into photo shoot shape? How would I have time? Who would want a mom to model for them? You know, all those worries we have as mamas.
Well, I was wrong. It took about a year, but then I was back at it! In fact, my first job was modeling a new swimwear line! Scary, but a success.
Then, I got pregnant with our second baby… and right at the same time, I had signed on with Icon Fitness to develop and host my own workout videos called Fit in 15! Luckily, we were able to shoot them all before my belly showed. Instead of stopping there, we decided to take advantage of the belly… and I created Fit Mommies.
As my belly grew… I started to think my modeling career was really over this time. A tummy stretched out twice and now even more busy with TWO kids…
Flash forward two WEEKS after having Joyah… yes, two WEEKS later, I got my first job after baby 2. I couldn’t believe it! I certainly wasn’t in tip-top shape, but I had managed to lose most of the pregnancy weight (since I worked out and ate healthy the entire pregnancy, I only gained 17lbs).
Here’s my favorite shot… Luckily no sports bras were involved haha!
Baby girl came with me!
