Amanda by Mauricio Padilla

How did the shoot with Amanda come about?

Amanda and I were just chilling and the idea came whilst we were talking about things. The shoot was just for fun and the idea was so simple; film cameras, her clothes and make up, natural light and PATIO 77 – a hotel boutique in San Rafael neighborhood in México City, which was the location.
