Just about covers it.

I'm just gonna just come out and shout it from the rooftops!
A couple of weeks ago I had the honor of my image being on the cover of Time Out Chicago
This sent me over the moon, I was honored and just plain excited.
But this wasn't all. No! Not by a long shot. I had the wonderful pleasure of 
photographing two families that live in amazing spaces, who opened their doors to me and let me
photograph them and what they love about their home

Mark and Patrick were lovely, their home was fun and creative and welcoming.







The next family was the Picklman Family
Their space was bright and creative and if I could 
figure out how to live in a space that was surrounded by art I'd be a happy happy girl


This is the portrait I loved.

FUNctional art.... The only way to go.

Perfect Strangers

New project. All film.

Believe it or not. I am a shy person. I can fake it well.
This project is about connecting to other people.

 I ASK them if I can photograph them. I shoot one frame of film then
I have to give them some of my time. Connect with them.

I also feel like I shoot a lot. Why can't I try to take my time and get the shot in one?
I've got 12 images on a roll of 120. I give myself one shot at each person.

Let me know what you think.

ART woMAN, ART!

Once again Time Out asked me to shoot some awesome ladies.
I of course said.... "YES!" I had the great pleasure of meeting and chatting with
Her space was spare and the light was amazing.... Much like her work.





Next I photographed Maria Gaspar, again I felt so lucky to meet her
Her space and little bits of ideas everywhere. 
She also had the BEST red shoes... (not shown)






Thank you both for opening your studios and spending a little time with my camera and I
