Lisa Gasparian of Amorino

I have this awesome opportunity to work with Lisa Gasparian! She is a fantastic woman with a very powerful presence. She is also opening a gelato concept from Paris called Amorino. {If you google it, you will die} Not only is Lisa a fantastic mom, but she is the owner and area developer for Amorino in the Chicago land area, and this one will be located on 838 N State Street in Chicago, IL. Can you say POSH? I can’t wait to be one of the first people to order a macaron caffé filled with caffé gelato in February. Read more about this on Amorino’s Facebook, and you can like and follow the journey to opening day here.

The Every Girl.

I’m so excited about my photography being featured on The Every Girl! I think we can all agree, (men included) that there is something magical about The Every Girl, and the seriously talented ladies behind the scenes! I photographed two {After Work Transformation} looks modeled by Nicole Regan of blog Cedar and Rush, and writer of Cheeky Chicago… looks styled by Maritza Buelvas, the brains behind Beauty for Bloggers, and also The Coquette Baguette!

Behind the scenes with Huge Galdones. (Galdones Photography)

Recently, I have had a couple of opportunities to follow around|work with the fantastic Huge Galdones, who is as brilliant at photography as he is making people smile. You may all know that I love food photography, and just food in general {It’s kind of my thing}, but Huge is one of the top Chicago food photographers, and also takes assignments in other countries. Picking his brain is fun, and shooting alongside him is an honor.

This is a post to show you what it’s like to be behind the scenes at a shoot without giving away serious Galdones Photography trade secrets. This is from a recent shoot at River Roast in Chicago! All photos of me by Huge, and all other photos by me. Enjoy!

Oysters and Champagne.

I photographed Nicole Regan of {Cedar and Rush} and Megan Jedlinski of {Stylish and Scatterbrained}  at GT Fish and Oyster. I had so much fun capturing their east coast themed hang out. They were sent clothes from Vineyard Vines, which both ladies wore so well! The oysters were fresh, and the beverages were bubbly, so overall, it was perfect! I even got to meet the award-winning lead Chef and Partner, Giuseppe Tentori, who has the most charming personality, and incredible wit. It was an honor working with all three of these professional charmers, and I hope you enjoy the photos!

Nicole Regan of blog Cedar and Rush!

I photographed an outfit showcase in the middle of the street on the Magnificent Mile for Nicole Regan of blog Cedar and Rush! Nicole is a stunning woman who is fabulous at her career in social media and public relations. I can vouch for her myself, seeing as I have only known her for a short period of time, and I have already learned a lot from her! Can’t wait to do more projects with Nicole in the future. Cheers!

These are just a small sample of my favorite photos from the Augenbergs wedding. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed being in the company of these two on their big day. Marijana and Eriks are such charming people, and I am so grateful to have made new friends in them! (p.s. I cried a couple of times!) Special shout out to my assistant Jessica Carr, who did a fantastic job! gingerfox.vsco.com

Dinner for the Greater Chicago Food Depository at Found Kitchen

I photographed this wonderful private party for Found Kitchen and Social House. The object of the party, to celebrate the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Go check them out! http://www.chicagosfoodbank.org/site/PageServer

The Food Depository, founded in 1979, makes a daily impact across Cook County with a network of 650 pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, mobile programs, children’s programs, older adult programs and innovative responses that address the root causes of hunger. Last year, the Food Depository distributed 66 million pounds of shelf-stable food, fresh produce, dairy products and meat, the equivalent of 150,000 meals every day.
