What I love about covering Profile Shoots for TomboyKC is that I always get to meet interesting people that normally wouldn't cross my path.
Lynsey and Katie introduce me to wonderful amazingly talented women around NYC and beyond.
Eve Kessner is one of these people.
A mother to the cutest two little girls. A Soul Cycle instructor. A health guru. A brooklynite. & A writer.
We went into Eve's bedroom, where she had laid out some outfits for the shoot. Two dresses and her Soul Cycle outfit. I expressed that the shoot is about "her" and she should wear what makes her feel comfortable and most herself. She nodded and said, "Great, I am not a dress kind of girl anyways." She settled on her Brooklyn tee and cutoff jean shorts. She clipped back her pink mermaid hair and folded herself up on the couch.
Her two little girls barged through the front door of their Brooklyn apt, pinkberry in hand and eager to join in on the shoot. I captured them around the apt and outside their home before heading off to Eve's SoulCycle class at 7:30.
Eve was thrilled to have me tag along to her Soul Cycle class. We hopped into her Smart Car and drove to her Brooklyn Height's class talking about everything from NY to SoulCycle to friends to motherhood.
Everyone smiled in excitement as she walked in the door of the studio. It was clear her presence had an effect on everyone from staff to cyclers. One regular cycler sat in the front room. Eve greeted her with a hug, surprised to see her at the class. The woman said she wasn't feeling too great but was going to take the class anyways. Eve brought her over a water and asked the staff to charge her personal account. This is just a small example of her generosity and kind-hearted soul.
It was by far one of my favorite shoots for TomboyKC.
Although Eve and I spent a little over an hour together, she made an impact on me. She has a look on life that was contagious. You can tell in her voice her passion for what she does and how she lives her day to day life, which has an impact on everyone around her. There is no doubt in my mind that I won't be taking her class next time I am back in the city.
