Out of Practice…

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was wandering around Maggie Daley and Millennium Parks over the weekend for some much needed photography time. However, I was having a hard time seeing anything in a very interesting way and was just not feeling inspired, which was very frustrating. Especially since I haven’t had much […]

The White City

If you read the recent post about my image, Make No Little Plans, then you know I’m working on this new series The White City. Inspired by novel The Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. Sunday I had the chance to shoot a little bit, first at the University of Chicago’s Mansueto Library, […]

What a perfect Sunday! I got to sleep in, woke up to a beautiful snowfall and had a day date with my husband that included a little photography, movie and dinner. It’s been way too long for all three and luckily Brady was up for letting me use his alumni status at the University of […]

Make No Little Plans | STARK-Magazine Issue.33

What a happy ending to 2014! Stark Magazine published my image, Make No Little Plans, on the back cover in their latest issue, Issue.33. I’m particularly excited because this is the first image for a new series I’ll be focusing on in 2015 titled The White City. Coming up with a title for this publication […]

A Year In Review, 2014

I was going to title this post “The Best of 2014″, but I think it’s more appropriate to review those favorites, those “bests”, and figure out why I like those above all others. This time of year has a way of forcing us all to take stock. As we’re wrapping up 2014 and looking toward […]

Streeterville

Yesterday I had the opportunity to shoot from a friends condo in the Streeterville neighborhood. If you’re not familiar with this area, its boundaries are the river on the south, Michigan Ave on the west and Lake Michigan on the east and north ends. If you’ve ever visited the city and walked from Michigan Ave […]

Clark Park Boathouse

Well, it’s been forever since I’ve spent anytime shooting much of anything around Chicago. Today I had about a 30 minute window to squeeze in some shots before picking my kids up from school, so I headed over to the Clark Park Boathouse designed by my favorite Chicago architectural firm, Studio Gang Architects. You might […]

MAM Road Trip

Friday I took a little road trip up to the Milwaukee Art Museum to see the Postcards from America: Milwaukee exhibition before it closes in a couple weeks. Never hurts to get a little inspiration from some of the world’s top photographers of our time. Though there’s plenty of inspiration just walking into this Calatrava […]

Guggenheim Museum

After far too many years without a visit to New York City I had a chance to take a quick trip there this last weekend. I had the perfect excuse with one of my ‘L’ images being part of a group exhibition through the New York Center for Photographic Art at gallery Site 109 Friday […]

From One Rooftop to Another

Earlier this week I had the good fortune to go out and shoot with a couple photographer friends who happen to have some pretty great rooftop access. First, they both work at the Chicago Tribune so I was lucky enough to get a chance to grab a couple photos from one of their rooftop terraces. […]
