It’s pretty intimidating to blog about a blogger, especially one as talented and prolific as Samantha Irby!!! I was super excited to photograph the very lovely Ms Irby for Chicago Magazine; and let me tell you, this woman is AWESOME!!! As soon as I saw the title of her blog, Bitches Gotta Eat, I wanted to be her best friend forever!:) The first post I stumbled upon, hey, nice tits., was so profound I had to read it out loud so my retoucher, Sami, sitting at the computer adjacent mine, could also enjoy some laughing out loud. Samantha Irby, has great wisdom to share, and she’s REALLY funny too!!!!!:) Even scheduling to shoot was a pleasure; the first text I received from her said, “HEY BABY HEY”. :)!!!!!!!! Lucky for all of us, she wrote a book called, Meaty, which you can buy right at this very minute!!!! You can also go see her, live in person, as part of Guts and Glory: Live Lit for the Lionhearted at Powell’s Bookstore!! Oh, and in case you were wondering what we did for our wrap party, we all ate super fancy ice cream sundaes complete with cashews and fresh sour cherries (yes, of course we have pictures!); Samantha Irby is on the money: Bitches Gotta Eat.
Powell’s Bookstore-Special thanks!!!!!:)
