Here is the story and a photo from the first time we worked together:

Ontario University Athletics created an advertising campaign the emphasized excellence in Academics and Athletics. It was titled, “Champions For Life” and modeled after the NCAA tagline of, “Most of us will go pro in something other than sports.” I have been lucky enough to work with the OUA in photographing the athletes and alumni that were recognized as Champions For Life.

Alyssa Lagonia, was a soccer star on the 2011 Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks soccer squad and a member of Canada’s FISU Games soccer team. She represented the OUA as a ‘Champion For Life.’ We worked together to create portraits in August of 2011. The plan was shoot both the Lagonia just prior to the Football promo photos. Here is the group:
