A Winter Day in Chicago

We finally got some snow!!! I’ve been waiting to get some wintery photos of the city for months. I made a quick stop in Lincoln Park…I know, I’m always shooting from there, but it’s hard to pass up given the great view of the city. Then I headed over to the Lincoln Park Conservatory for […]

Happy 2013!

The first day of 2013…a chilly day with bright, crisp skies and months since I’d been out shooting with my little photographer. She’s been begging to go out for some photography with just mom for quite awhile! So off we went to Fullerton and the lakefront to make some images from the rocky shore, then […]

A View From Above & (a couple) Abstractions

My plan for today was to be a slacker with my photography and get caught up on errands and shhh, maybe see a movie;) But after a motivating conversation with an artist friend last night and then a last minute text from another photographer (thanks guys:)), it seemed the universe was pushing me to get […]

Lincoln Park is such a beautiful park and jammed packed with things to do! We only covered the south end and the Lincoln Park Zoo, spending the afternoon trying to get some pictures of my little guy (he’s already 18 months old!) and checking out the zoo animals. We even happened upon a fun juggling […]

Historical Neighborhoods…pick 4 of our 52 Adventures in Chicago!

The Historical Neighborhoods card was drawn this week. This card specifies the Sheffield Historic District, which falls between Fullerton, Halsted, Armitage & Racine. Though I’ve been in this neighborhood many times, mostly on the main streets mentioned above, I’ve never really walked along the side streets within this area. Wow! Simply stunning homes and architecture! […]
