What an incredibly fun day!! This morning I shot a styled fashion shoot for Leslie McAllister, stylist extraordinaire and owner of the retro vintage shop “JuJu.”
Recently Leslie expanded her shop to Etsy and wanted to do a shoot to showcase some of her favorite pieces on her Etsy store and also on her JuJu website. And wow. Her selection is vast and awesome!! You definitely need to go check it out! We started off with each of the models changing into about 10 different outfits and shooting details of the clothes etc. THEN we moved into the fun stuff with a set which Leslie designed (the girl can really do it all!) I shot over 2000 images including all of the detail shots for the Etsy store, but my favorites are definitely the styled shoot.
This is the second time I’ve had the opportunity to work with Leslie, as last year she put together and styled an entire fashion show for the Kanzius Research Foundation which I photographed. It was totally like a reunion shoot, because not only were Leslie and I working together again, but the models were the same girls who walked the catwalk at the benefit show as well!
Aren’t these girls gorgeous!? The styling was totally eclectic and retro, but these girls ROCKED it! Thanks again to the models for 1. turning it on for the camera and 2. making the day SO MUCH FUN! (L-R) Kelly Chaney, Lena Logvina, Marni McAllister, Sue Martin and Emily White. You girls are all awesome!
And it wouldn’t be a proper tea party without baked goods, where I OF COURSE turned to the drool-worthy-orgasm-in-the-mouth sweet treats of 814 Cupcakes!! the owner of 814 turned out some colorful and fun cupcakes especially for this shoot!
