"MY LAWYER - JOHANNA HESS - WBFF PRO DIVA" - By MikeCon Photography

In December of 2016, I had put on my travel schedule to make my way back to Kansas City, MO to do photo shoots. The WBFF wasn’t doing shows there any longer, however I reached out to Johanna via social media if she’d like to shoot together on my visit there. Sure enough on 29 July 2017, we made magic!!! I coordinated with my Muse Tessi Conquest to do Johanna’s makeup for this shoot. This time, I knew that I had progressed a little more in my style, and I wanted Johanna to be showcased as amazing as she is.

As I’m shooting with Johanna, I noticed something. Something very unique about her than I had only seen once before with another client. I noticed during a quick 5 minute break that you can get better shots of Johanna if you just let her be herself and not pose her. Like, just let her be natural and you just have to quickly capture the moments as she moves around.

“Everybody wants to be famous, but nobody wants to do the work. I live by that. You grind hard so you can play hard. At the end of the day, you put all the work in, and eventually it'll pay off. It could be in a year, it could be in 30 years. Eventually, your hard work will pay off.” - Kevin Hart

"FIT FEATURE: KATIE KATES" - By Denver Fitness Photographer MikeCon Photography

Who inspires you?  Why?  People who are unapologetically themselves.  People who don’t care what others think of them, who say what they feel, stand up for what they believe and kick ass along the way. Those are my kind of people!  


Who is your fitness and body role model? Why?  I have so many!  I follow a lot of very inspiring and bad ass women on Instagram.  They make me want to try harder and be better. I’ve also am a huge fan of our local Norma Jean Watkins.  She’s a mini bad ass and I love her. Hey girl, heeeey!!!!
