The Fashion Appeal - First Look Book Collection

"A Sweet Kiss of Vintage and Purple"

Jessica Capron is a friend and fellow fashion photographer here in Chicago! You also may know her from her work on Calumet Photographic's social media and blog Parallax. Is there anything this girl can't do? Now she is revealing the big launch of her new fashion blog and lookbook called The Fashion Appeal! Her intentions with this new platform is to get to work firsthand with local fashion designers by interviewing them and photographing their work. Along with that, she has created a space where she can share her own personal wardrobe and fashion trend obsessions. I absolutely love it! It's a place where designers, fashion lovers, photographers and lookbookers unite in sweet harmony. 

Jessica asked me to photograph her for her first few lookbook collections for the blog, and of course I couldn't pass the opportunity up! We photographer her first four or five looks, the first of which was included in the launching of her blog...the rest to follow.

The jewelry featured in this collection is from my sister Nicole's store, One Strange Bird! (I just love collaborations. Win-win for everyone!) The locket necklace is from Nicoles personal jewelry line. The gold bracelet and necklace are both from the brand Fair Trade. All of the jewelery in these photos can be purchased in-store at One Strange Bird at 2124 W Division, Chicago IL.

On this little project, my great friend Conor Susi (who is also an amazing actor), did hair and makeup for us! He was so incredible to work with. He had amazing ideas and a true concept of his own for hair & makeup. Another win-win from this project is that he got some beauty shots for his own portfolio, as did I. Here they are! (Look at that perfect, smoldering eye...)
