Light is so cool. Last night I tested a rad new toy:) It drew neighbors to balconies like moths to a flame.

This weekend I shot stylish QT’s at Pitchfork for Nylon magazine. While shooting, The Fashion Magazine stopped me and took MY picture. Pretty cool weekend running into friends, making a few new ones, and seeing some good bands.

Check out my latest shoot with Nana Creme! We turned the studio upside down for a day. I love shooting kids, vegan ice cream, sprinkles and confetti. Everything about that day was amazing!

Read an interview with Chicago’s Nana Creme glacier, Gina Klafteta! Hear what she has to say about running her own company, and being a boss at 24.

My mom, recently divorced moved to Florida. I went to visit her a few days after she got there. I took a lot of photos in the few days we had together, and started processing my parents divorce.
