Luize Salmgrieze is from Latvia. Caroline knew her from another shoot so we had a fun, laid back environment. She's incredibly smart and funny, and I love her energy and expressions. One of my most fun shoots!
I've always wanted to shoot a girl who could play capoeira...and I found her! Drielle was so animated, loved making funny faces, and knew how to box and play capoeira. I had her kicking and punching all over the place...and even my face!
