Ten years and three months ago the March issue of Flex Magazine hit the newsstands with a special layout I shot at Red Rocks Resort in Las Vegas. We had full access to the pool as well as a massive penthouse suite to shoot six models that had been monthly winners of an online bikini contest. This was before there was a bikini division in the IFBB.

Kyla was the lone Canadian girl that I shot that day and we connected right away. She came ready to work hard and brought a happy and friendly demeanor with her. I regret that we never shot again afterwards.

We have been in touch since and she is doing great. She is a successful trainer and lifestyle coach that has used her success and notoriety to help others. Just as I would expect from the friendly girl that went above and beyond to give me the best shots possible while making everyone’s experience a positive one that day.
