I met Marianne years ago when she bartended at one of my open houses. Miss nude Canada – Justice was doing a pole routine for the guests (clothed lol) and apparently inspired Marianne into pole work. She has had an amazing progression from that day forward winning pole events and now doing fitness competitions. I was lucky enough to catch her at a peak physical time right after a competition when we did this shoot. A couple years ago I bought this rather expensive spanish web (climbing rope) that you would see in Cirque De Soleil routines. Most of my clientele being more cute than athletic did not work well, it’s extremely exhausting doing two hours of poses pushing every muscle group… but then I saw Marianne’s updated FB pics and knew she would be perfect.
My mother teaches ‘A course in Miracles’ and is always telling me about how our egos are in conflict with inner peace and happiness… that concept seemed to suit this image, and I wanted to project something insightful. I played with a few middle ‘catch phrases’ but ultimately decided to keep it simple (The ‘kiss’ principal repeatedly taught to us in college… u decide what the last ‘s’ represents)
Thank you Marianne for being my muse and enduring so many demanding poses. 🙂
