Shooting Kayla at Hagg Lake

A while back, I had the opportunity to photograph three beautiful women in a collaboration project with a hair stylist and a makeup artist. We didn't move as quickly as planned, and Kayla ended up with only a few minutes of camera time. Since then, we've tried to get together to do another shoot, but weather and schedules always seemed to get in the way. This weekend, we finally had a chance to shoot.

We both really wanted to get in-water shots, so we headed out to Hagg Lake. The lake was low and muddy, so we didn't quite get what we planned for, but we improvised. She has natural beauty and talent, and that gorgeous red hair, so my job was easy. There was a bit of hiking involved, as well as some sloshing through mud and muck, but in the end it was worth it.
