Chicago Magazine November 2011: Donuts or Doughnuts?

October 20, 2011 in Photography


I do not like eating doughnuts.  There, I said it!  I think I am perhaps the one person not interested in standing in line 3 hours at that new place downtown.;) Certainly a lover of sweets, my weakness lies in desserts filled with that deadly combo of sugar plus a touch of salt or just about anything Vosges makes with dark chocolate!  Mmmmmmmm!  Photographically however, DOUGHNUTS ARE FANTASTIC!!:)  Seriously, the variety, the shape, the colors, and of course the more sprinkles the better!!  Makes me wonder, maybe I should go stand in that long line just to see what my camera is missing?!!:) I was very excited when Chicago Magazine asked me to photograph their story about doughnuts and the family that loves them!  Meet the Loevys and the Segals, a family so fun we are hoping to be invited to their next family get together!:)

The Lovely Misha at the Skyline Motel

October 5, 2011 in Photography

I spotted this lovely lady across a crowded room and instantly knew I had to photograph her!  I was very excited when our schedules finally coincided and she agreed to check out an hourly rate motel I’ve had my eye on-the turquoise paint literally calls my name every time I drive by!  Misha is not only gorgeous and sweet, but talented too-check out some of her art work here!
