Marriage Mondays- Instagram… why not?

Marriage Mondays- Instagram… why not?

Come on in, the water’s fine. Sometimes you think you hate something, you build up a wall against it, and then that wall slowly comes down and you realize the thing you disliked is actually pretty cool. I had been anti-phone photography for quite some time, seeing all the low-res photos uploaded to Facebook every day by the dozens, with special filters and coloring that resemble the classic Holga and Diana made me cringe. I was also troubled because I […]

 

Marriage Mondays- May Day giveaway!

Marriage Mondays- May Day giveaway!

Spring is here and love is in the air!

May 1st is just around the corner, and my little photo company will be celebrating it’s 4th year! In honor of May Day and it’s Maypole tradition (hence the company name), I am giving away a FREE styled engagement session (complete with goodies like hair and makeup). Love goes hand in hand with flowers and ribbons, so as we welcome in Spring and dance around the Maypole, I want to celebrate a […]

 

Marriage Monday’s- Dig Deeper!

Marriage Monday’s- Dig Deeper!

One Life. One Love. One Body.

As many of our New Year’s resolutions melt away with the last of Winter’s snow, we hope a few good habits remain. Although I don’t think a life without wine, cheese, butter, or coffee (etc.) would be worth living, I still want to do right by this body… after all- it’s the only one I have and I should take good care of it. I will never be red-carpet material, my curves are here to […]

 

Marriage Mondays- You are what you eat

Marriage Mondays- You are what you eat

I still remember the lyrics to a song I was taught back in the 4th grade: “you are what you eat, from your head to your feet, so be sure to eat food that’s good for you…” Of course we all know we should eat our vegetables, try to buy organic and non-GMO, avoid the fast food (we all watched “super size me”, right?), etc. etc. Luckily we have many chefs and restaurants making the extra effort to not only […]

 

Marriage Mondays- Life’s Too Short

Marriage Mondays- Life’s Too Short

“There is more to life than increasing its speed.” -Mahatma Gandhi

Happy 2012! With a new year comes new things, and although we all do our best to welcome change sometime’s it’s sad to see something go. With the end of 2011 I say goodbye to one of my favorite quirky Chicago locations, Life’s Too Short. This old bar-front had been closed for years, acquiring a nostalgia with all its peeling paint as well as additions from many of Chicago’s graffiti artists. […]

 

Marriage Mondays- Baby It’s Cold Outside

Marriage Mondays- Baby It’s Cold Outside

It is so exciting to watch your friend’s business succeed. As the photographer in the mix, I most often get to be the one to document it all, or even help create the photos for their catalog of products. My friend Laura moved to Beaver Island Michigan to be with her boyfriend Mark, and they have a great little business in furs. I realize many of you may not be prone to wearing a coyote or fox fur hat during […]
