I'm the first to admit that I have Olympic fever every 4 years! I can't stop watching it; so many sports, so many amazing athletes and so little time to squeeze it all in. With Olympic fever in full swing this summer I was honored when my sister-in-law called me to see if I was interested in photographing an Olympic athlete for 2013 Women of Curling calendar.
Mmmm, of course! I was totally onboard!
So in August we ventured out to the Mill City District of Minneapolis to photograph Cassie Potter, a Winter Olympic athlete. She was an absolute sweetheart! Cassie is an American curler best known for her apperance in the 2006 Winter Olympics and the 2005 Women's World Curling Championships. Not only she is an amazing athlete but also a beautiful girl and I was honored to photograph her.
