Mia Tucker Williams is a talented stylist who I've been working with for years, so when one Friday evening she called me in a mild panic because they somehow lost their photographer for a portrait shoot with Chantelle Fraser the next morning, it didn't take much convincing to get me on board. Chantelle's publicist had reached out to Mia about an ongoing collaboration in the Spring and when they were contacted by Panache Magazine in Jamaica about running a feature on Chantelle, she called Mia, who then called me (the production phone tree at work). Chantelle Fraser is the CEO of Flawless NYC, a vegan beauty and lifestyle blogger, and one of the stars of Bravo's hit reality show, Blood, Sweat, and Heels. I didn't really have anything else going on so it seemed like a nice way to spend a Saturday morning in June.
We met at Chantelle's house the next day and shot the story in her backyard. Working with Chantelle was a very lovely experience. The London native and CEO was a gracious host and willing model (as was Milkshake, her west highland terrier). Here are some of my favorite images from the shoot, and don't forget to check out the article in Panache Magazine.
