Paula Manzanal

Paula is a total gem, she was Miss Peru and Miss Swimsuit International 2014 and is now a TV Host in Australia. She not only SLAYS, but she's a genuine sweet soul. She was just SO excited about my photography and our shoot, I was so happy to have met and worked with her!

Our shoot was totally perfect timing! We both just happened to be in Maui at the same time for the same week, and there was no way we could miss out on snapping some beach babe pics before she flew out the next day!

I styled Paula in all of my own wardrobe pieces. We went with a black, white, and angelic mix with a hint of rugged. Paula had brought along her friend Caroline, and so I styled her in one of my favorite tees for a fun BFF look. The 3 of us set up the shoot spot on the white sands of the private beach behind the villa they were staying in. We quickly shot a few looks on the beach in the perfect glow of golden hour just in time for sunset, and for the 2 of them to catch their dinner reservations at the end of the night!

Awesome.

P.S. On a side note, it was super hilarious because my BFF happened to be obsessing over the fact that Brock O'Hurn was in Maui at the very same time as well, and it actually turned out that that's who they were staying with! LOL Small world, small island. Haha
