Engelika Padilla was fighting a serious cold and, according to world renown supermodel photographer Mike Cohen, “she felt absolutely awful. It was one of those nasty colds that attack the respiratory system, the eyes ears nose and throat all at once. If she felt better the next day, she would be upgraded to just plain feeling horrible!”
The Heyman Hustle was set to shoot an EXCLUSIVE sundown photo set with Engelika at the VIP-only Breathe Lounge at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Las Vegas.
“When you have a true beauty like Engelika, you dream of moments where you can capture her with natural light,” Mike noted. “The only issue that can arise is that you only have a window of a few minutes to get the perfect light for the photo shoot. You either hit it perfectly, or you’re out of luck for the next twenty four hours!”
Mike continued, “no one knew if Engelika could even get out of bed for the photo shoot, which obviously had me panicked. Everything was in place for this to be a rare opportunity with the lighting, based on not only the weather, but also the time of year. This was our chance!”
As if entrance music should play, security notified Mike that #HustleBootyTempTats supermodel Engelika Padilla was coming up the VIP elevator, right on time. “She walked out of that elevator like an angel,” Mike recalled. “She’s not only a magnificently beautiful woman, she’s a total pro!”
