It was 95° at 10am in Highland Park, Il and only one of us was in a bathing suit. Mandy Rose is a former WBFF Bikini World Champion and in WWE is known as The Golden Goddess. So, we went with black, gold and white themes in a modern location for this National Bikini Day shoot. I worked with Kate Levinson to find a great location that hit all of our marks and yet wasn’t too far from the arena. Sofia Karvela nailed 4 great looks and Mark DalPra dressed our location with palms, throws and pillows to make it more personal. And how could we resist some golden inflatable wings! Kareem Black and his team moved quickly to get as many shots as possible in an hour and half at the location. I loved being able to play with the various levels of the house to get unique shots.
On this shoot, I also captured a 360 video for YouTube.
