Today’s featured session is from Chantal Erickson of Chantal Erickson Photography!

Absolutely loved the location and the subject in this session!

Here is what Chantal had to say about the session:

I absolutely love sessions where my client gives me full control and lets my artistic juices flow! Sometimes this is not easy especially when you arrive and see an old torn apart couch and washing machine that had been dumped at the location site! The best part is Amaya knew my goal was to provide her images that reflected her unique style and trusted I would do just that. Sometimes the most amazing shoots are not conformed to a particular style or idea rather just letting creativity lead the way. Many people would have seen this location as a dumping ground but I saw magic in the making!!!
My only request was bold makeup and an edgy look. My hair and makeup artist nailed it with the dramatic eye and faux hawk. Amaya wore a custom gown and jacket from The Porcelain Tea Cup and the rest just fell into place!

The gear used:

Canon 5D Markiii
85mm 1.8
50mm 1.4

The inspiration behind the session:

I was originally inspired by my clients custom gown and her unique look. There was something about this run down abandoned rice mill that drew me in and I immediately knew it was perfect for Amaya’s session!

Hair and Makeup:

Hair/Makeup: Polished by Jessica

Model Name: Amaya
