Laina Reivi is a former figure skater turned pole dancer. She recently competed in the amateur division at Pole Theatre USA (where she danced wearing her skates!), and she also teaches pole classes in Boulder. When I needed a test subject for my first outdoor pole session, Laina volunteered immediately. While we were expecting bright sunlight, Colorado decided to give us overcast skies and a sudden rain shower: not ideal for Laina’s grip, but it made her pictures all the more interesting.
North Boulder Park was the perfect setting for our photos; lush and green from all the rain we’ve had recently (which is not guaranteed in late June), with the Foothills in the background.
Thank you so much for working with me Laina! I’m already getting excited for our next shoot – keep an eye out on Nina Reed Photography on Facebook to see sneak peeks when it happens.
