West Van Run 2016 Promo shoot

When Kirill of West Van Run asked if I could take their promo pictures along with my fellow runner and shutterbug friend Shannon of Cuddlebug captures, It was an easy answer. This group really is the definition of team and as part of them we were thrilled to capture some awesome shots to promote this great event.  West Van run holds an annual run, now over 2 days, incorporating a 5K, 10K and a kids run. It so well organized that you can actually participate in all the events which makes this race weekend one of few, the whole family can enjoy. To learn more about the event and to register check out the website here West Van Run 2016.

On an early morning, with beautiful backlight to ease the chill,  we invited some of the Ambassadors for West Van Run  Karin FemiBradley CuzenJin StewartBen Lui,  Samantha A Daigneault , Sarah J Cuff and Steve Monteith, along with Cody Callon and Kathryn Drew from fellow run club Fraser Street Run Club to share some performance poses and portraits. This crew knows how to look hot in their  Brooks gear, check out some of my images for  Nikki Baxendale Photography below.


I can never resist a little backlight so here were a few quick snaps as the sun joins us over the Lions Gate bridge.



A little individual warm up.

And then some teamwork, which was fun and borderline life threatening lying on the road as the car whizzed by!

and after all that work we still remember to stretch, check out those awesome Brooks shoes! Great job Ben Lui, for standing still long enough for me to catch that perfect moment!
