Vacation

Top

Vacation! The face Elena has on while she was swinging perfectly represents how I felt the whole time. I relaxed, visited friends, and ate fantastic food. My in-law’s food is so good. I can never recreate the same tastes at home, even when I get the recipes. Elena and Elias love to cook with Michael’s mom. Elena’s job is to cut a few vegetables and peel garlic. This week Elias insisted on eating at the table with everyone else. I guess highchairs are out now. Elena enjoyed running around in the yard and playing with the neighbor girls next door.

I enjoyed dreaming and relaxing while sipping tea. Doesn’t this look like such a peaceful place?

Plus, check out that barn! I think it could make a great event space someday. Just needs a little fixing up. *wink-wink*

Champaign and Sail: Nautical Inspired Chicago Shoot

Top

Last month I had the privilege to be a part of a styled shoot at Montrose Harbor. The weather turned out to be great despite rain predictions. I had such a great time. I met wonderful vendors and got to shoot alongside other photographers. It is so nice to work and chat with other photographers. It is something I wish I could do more. I loved being able to enjoy doing what I love and relaxing with peers whom I can now call friends.

Thank you to Wojoimage Photography and HeartilyWed for putting this shoot together.

We had a great collection of details to photograph. The stationary print design was created by Ari from Chykalophia Design. So cute. The other little details were rented from ShadowBox Dreams. Their details were great for this theme.

And now the wonderful models. Evelyn and Will are naturals and seemed to read everyone’s mind at the same time. It really was amazing. Makeup was done by Joanna B. Artistry. I couldn’t stop admiring Evelyn’s hair. I wish I could make braids like that. Anca Moldoveanu did a great job on hair design.

It was so great being able to photograph these two.
