Sam from takes South Congress

Sam and I geared up for a second shoot after the fun we had on the first one. We even managed to enroll her lovely fiancé to help assist with the lighting. On South Congress we had many options for places to stop and hang out at or snap some shots. Of course, we made sure to have time for a slice at Homeslice.

Concept test shoot with Samantha Caplan

My friend Samantha Caplan is someone I have known for a very long time. She could possibly be the longest female friendship I have had as an adult. I gave her wild haircuts when she was still a high school student and even did her updo's for formal dances. As long as I have known her, I have known her to have an exceptional eye for color. She tends to be more bold with her style than most, and it is one of the many things I love about her. 

One day I suggested she let me shoot some street style sort of stuff for her Instagram (she is @samcapable) and just see where that goes. We had so much fun chatting over coffee at Cafe Medici that we almost ran out of light for the last look we wanted to shoot. 

It also turned out to be interesting timing, because Sam and one of her best friends had been talking about starting a fashion blog. I later made them an About Us video for their website.
