Ask and ye shall receive

I had an assignment to shoot the Restore the Core exercise class at the Lockeford Springs Golf Club’s pro shop. The class is for new moms who want to tone up a flabby stomach left after child birth.

When I got there, instructor Leigh Hobson was just starting the class of about five women, and I shot them doing their gentle ab workouts. After several minutes I thought to myself that what would best illustrate the story was if one of the participants brought along her baby. But, alas, none had. Just as the thought exited my mind, a woman walked through the door with a baby car seat/carrier in her hand.

Anita Vodden sat on the floor, unrolled her exercise mat and unbuckled her 6-month-old daughter Eva. She then held her daughter on her abdomen for a part of her workout then allowed her to play with some of the exercise balls.

Several more minutes passed and a couple more women joined the group, but they didn’t bring their children, either. Call it serendipty or providence, but just by thinking about it, I got what I needed.
