Jersey photographer: a gymnast photoshoot at Plemont beach
‘Everything you need to be great is already inside you’
The first time I saw the reflective tidal pools and dark sea caves at Plemont, I knew this would be the perfect dramatic location for a gymastics photoshoot. The soft sand of the beaches in Jersey also provides a wonderful natural environment for gymnasts to perform without fear of injury.
As a photographer in Jersey, I was so excited about Amalie’s gymnastics photoshoot. At only 7 years old, her ability and talent were unbelievable. Her love of gymnastics started at the tender age of 4 years old, and she now practises four times a week at De Mond Gymnastics.
For her gymnastics photoshoot she brought plenty of outfit changes in case of tumbles into the sea (we only had one tumble!), and she had a whole repertoire of poses, moves and leaps for us to photograph.
Amalie grinned from ear to ear throughout the photoshoot - it was clear that having the opportunity to showcase and capture the hours and hours she has dedicated to her sport was a really great experience for her. It was so inspiring to photograph. She also seemed to have boundless energy - whilst her mum and I walked between the different photoshoot locations on the beach, she cartwheeled!
I hope you love these images that celebrate the incredible achievements and passion of this lovely girl. With many thanks to Amalie and her family for letting me share her images.
If you are interested in a gymnastics photoshoot that captures your passion for the sport set against a beautiful natural landscape, I would love to hear from you.
