Chanel Vanzant, RYT 200hr

Connecting with Chanel for this session was as effortless as meeting a childhood friend for coffee. She shared her journey throughout this shoot, laughing at funny anecdotes and showing a sense of vulnerability rare in every sense of the word.

I was able to see 15+ people in the amount of time one session might take for a full portrait suite.
