This shoot was full of surprises as the mud was thick and heavy! Miss National US, Heidi Schmidt, drove over for a memorable shoot with one of the most beautiful headpieces I had ever seen crafted by Erin at Spriggs in San Luis Obispo. The laughs, falls, wardrobe malfunctions and losing shoes were all worth it in post production.
We last minute decided to do this shoot at Santa Margarita Lake, which is near empty since the drought has effected California so much. Our model was a great sport to hike through the mud to get to the little water left and put her game face on! Thank you to the team that came out to help me! It puts a smile on my face just reminiscing!
