Time Out Chicago, Issue 319: Swinging Spring Fashion!

April 7, 2011 in Photography

Thanks to Time Out Chicago for asking us to work on this super fun Spring Fashion cover story featuring 70’s inspired trends as well as products made in Chicago back in the 70’s!  I was excited to break out the swing for them a second time-originally hung in the studio with the help of some rickety scaffolding and a very brave friend (thank you Flint Chaney!!!) for TOC Spring Fashion way back in 2007!  Happy Swinging!!:)

This crew is just too cute!!!:)  To see some more behind the scenes check out Time Out’s website!
