I came to Adweek at the beginning of March, and three days into my new position as photo editor, I worked on my first cover shoot: Alex Morgan, co-captain of the U.S. soccer team, which, a day before publication, brought home the World Cup. To prepare, I scoured endless Google Images searches of her to see where she had been photographed, how and by whom. There was a common theme: soccer uniform, smiling, swimsuit, approachable, sexy, etc.
