We aren’t sure if you know this: cheerleading is not a joke. Especially when it comes to TRB Elite Model, Mandi Clausen. This Heritage High School senior is a top competitor in the cheer world, but you won’t be seeing her on the football field during half-time. Mandi has taken it to a whole new level with Spirit of Texas, an extremely competitive competitive cheer group that does everything from peppy chants to death-defying stunts that leave the audience wowed and, well, cheered.

Already having the pleasure of working with Mandi once before during our Country Chic session earlier this summer, we were excited to see her and her fun personality again. What we weren’t expecting? Her amazing relationship with her mom. We see a lot of seniors with their parents, and although there is always a lot of love, these two were best friends and showed it throughout our hike through Arbor Hills Nature Preserve. At one point, Mandi jumped on top of a manhole cover and her mom proceeded to call her the ‘poo princess’ for the remainder of the shoot. Needless to say, we loved it and so did Mandi.
