Happy Trixie Easter!!!

March 25, 2016 in Photography

I think it’s pretty clear I want to spend ALL of my holidays with my favorite muse, Trixie Mattel!!!:) ūüôā ūüôā ¬†I’m not sure if you have heard, but Trixie has moved to Hollywood to become an even bigger star!!! ¬†In honor of the¬†move, our latest shoot was inspired by vintage¬†movie star promotional photographs combined with a little bit of creepy bunny to help celebrate the holiday! ¬†Also, just for the record, rabbits are known to be herbivores and no baby chicks were harmed in the making of these photographs! ¬†Hope you all have a Happy Trixie Easter!!! ¬†XOXO!!!!

IL Meetings + Events, Spring 2016: Debbie Sharpe

March 23, 2016 in Photography

I was super excited when IL M+E asked me to photograph a woman who loves Chicago, food, and music as much as I do!:)  Debbie Sharpe has quite the resumé as a self taught rock-n-roll caterer; luckily, she also shares her amazing food with the masses through her multiple Goddess and Grocer locations as well as Feast Restaurant (I think about their wasabi mashed potatoes probably a little too much!!).  It was truly a pleasure to spend a morning with her at the G&G Bucktown location chatting, drinking (GREAT) coffee, and of course taking pictures-Debbie Sharpe is AWESOME!!!  Keep an eye out for the newest Goddess and Grocer in Andersonville, scheduled to open on March 1!!!:)
