I had a wonderful time photographing Plus Model Erica Lauren at my NYC studio! Erica Lauren is based in LA and often works in NYC. During one of her recent trips we were able to get together for a shoot. Erica Lauren just signed on with Dorothy Combs Models, an agency I frequently work with on photoshoots. I was excited to photograph Erica Lauren, we had emailed back and forth during the Summer about me shooting for her portfolio, so it was exciting to finally be able to work together!
Timing works out crazy in this industry! It was a Friday and I had just finished shooting an editorial when I got an email in from Erica Lauren about a possible shoot in the next week. It was a response from our emails back in June, she was only in town for a few extra days and I had Monday available! I was headed out to meet up with friends for dinner and we were booking and planning the shoot. By Saturday morning we were ready to go!
You may have seen Erica Lauren in-store and online in campaigns for Lane Bryant, Torrid, Fashion to Figure and RebDolls. Erica needed a fresh, clean commercial update for her book. I had Natalia Bizinha for Erica Lauren’s hair and makeup.
Our focus for the shoot was clean and beautiful beauty, commercial studio shots and a few lingerie looks. Here are the images we got from the shoot, I’m really happy with how everything turned out. Erica Lauren is such a natural beauty and moves so well in front of the camera.
