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.
