spring fitness photo shoot

(Get your tickets to the 11 am, 11:45 am, or 12:30 pm fitness photo shoot here!)

In October, we hosted a fall photo shoot which turned out to be one of our favorite days of the year with you! The energy at Brooklyn Boulders and around the West Loop neighborhood of Chicago was so amazing, we couldn’t wait to create another opportunity as soon as we could.

Now that we’re (hopefully!) almost to spring, another photo shoot is coming your way! This time, we’re partnering with Trunk Club to give you time with a stylist to discuss what looks make you feel your best and help you achieve your goals. Whether your style is all about fitness, business, or athleisure, Trunk Club is going to hook you up with know-how to rock your looks and make them work for you.

When it comes time for you to strut your stuff for a 45-minute photo session, not only will you have the backdrop to make this a spring fitness photo shoot, you’ll have the use of Trunk Club’s incredible decor to capture lifestyle imagery, too. Helloooo, content for all your social media needs! We’ll see you May 19 for the spring fitness (and lifestyle!) photo shoot of your dreams!

Here’s what to expect at the spring fitness photo shoot May 19: 

Once you sign up for your time slot to take photos (sign up here), the Trunk Club team will send you a survey with styling/sizing questions to help the stylist choose the perfect outfits for your photoshoot which will be ready for you to try on when you arrive at your call time on May 19. You’ll have a stylist there to answer more questions as you try on the gear and get a feel for what the Trunk Club experience is like!

Gents, you’ll also have the opportunity to sample skin care from Bottlecode and ladies, you’ll have Maelle products on-site for finishing touches prior to your shoot.

Then, your photographer will meet you and two others for your 45-minute photo shoot. You’ll head out to take photos inside Trunk Club, on the roof and in the neighborhood around the space in River North.

What else can you expect on the day of the photo shoot?

At Trunk Club, we’ll have snacks from Left Coast and hydration for you, and you’ll automatically be paired with a stylist for a 15-minute consultation!
