Last Saturday we ventured out into the blistering heat to have a summer themed photoshoot. Our model balanced in heels on a step stool, laid in a flowerbed that was home to quite a few spiders, sat atop a car, and wore a skirt as the wind whipped by, but none of that was as stressful as the mishap we had before the camera was even out!! Read the entire story (and a tip that’ll turn a gasp into a smile) below these behind the scene shots!
Picture this: The photographer’s parents allowed us to set up in their home. We quickly followed the no shoe rule, leaving our boots and wedges by the front door, and ventured into the living room. While the make up artist was busily working to beautify our model, a bottle of liquid foundation crashed to the white carpeted floor. Yes, you read that right…I said WHITE carpet. I think we all had heart attacks when we saw the dark brown stain that was marring the floor. We tried make up remover, dish soap, Resolve, and nail polish remover, but the stain just wouldn’t lift! With a burst of intuition, the photographer, Sarah, took one last trip to the store and grabbed a bottle of Folex. Her parents will never even know that their beautiful white carpet was once hideously ruined with a bottle of make up…that is, unless they see this blog. Oops!!
I’ll swear by Folex – it’s magic in a bottle!! I’m surprised it doesn’t come complete with a mini superhero cape.
