Was it Rodge?

Apparently Roger and I both went to Michigan State and have a lot of the same friends. I vaguely remembered meeting him years ago so I was excited when my friends told me that he was coming to town and was looking for someone to shoot some new photos. Well, having been stuck working on the interwebs for the past month straight I jumped at the chance for a photo shoot. We decided since we were both super busy it would just be something quick and dirty, a plan I think turned out really well. I had an absolute blast shooting Roger and I can’t wait for him to come back to town so we can do something more formal. Thanks Roger for a great day!

A little extra background, Roger is a wonderful actor based in New York. Check him out




And then the glasses came off…



These last three are my absolute favorites from the shoot. (Especially the last one!)

Inspiration for July

This has been a busy month for my interwebs job. Our newest site launches Saturday morning! I have been so busy with it that I haven’t had time to shoot/edit images for a while. I will pick up again next week but in the meantime I wanted to share some of the items I’m enjoying right now:

Great little Taylor Swift song…

Also booked a little vacay to Mexico. It’s not till November but I’ve been singing every possible song about Mexico I can find. James Taylor and Montgomery Gentry have a couple good ones!

I am hoping to be able to post my pictures from the Pride Parade and Brunch very soon. Look for updates!

A few weeks ago over drinks my friend Sushma and I started talking about how I wanted to do more portrait sessions. Because she is amazing and gorgeous, she agreed to be my model and to show off some of her Indian heritage in the process. We spent Saturday morning down in the flower gardens by Lincoln Park Zoo, laughing and having a blast. (I even have the sunburn to prove it!) Anyway, here are some of my favorites from our shoot. Every time I have looked at these pictures in the past week it has brought a huge smile to my face. I hope you enjoy these pictures of my dear friend as much as I do.
