Welcome to my photo journal. I'm a full-time photographer based in Chicago + part-time dreamer. Full on audiophile in love with music, love for fashion and art.



...



And I am lost, and not found



Styling even when I'm going to class!

Nothing to gaze upon or contemplate







 My last outfit worn at NYFW SS15..



Some of my favorite outfits seen at the Lincoln Center!


My first runway was starting and my hands were shaking!



oh boy..



The madness continues in plaid & bows



Like a rolling stone...


Sometimes I can't believe it...


 tides come and go like a picture...



...I've seen our stars but there's nothing aligning



Vous connaissez mon jeu par coeur




I was your home and you locked yourself outside
and ran with your ghosts back to a place you'd already known..



You can swing, you can flail
You can blow what's left of my right mind
(I don't mind)..


 “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” 
– Mark Twain


 This is what I wore the first day at the Pitchfork Music Festival!


But me, I'm just the covers on top of your bed..





I made it to the Illinois Lottery Anything's Possible Music Series to see Fall Out Boy!

I am so excited to have Urban Decay be part of my first giveaway on the blog with the glamorous announcement of Sugar For Spike's release of its debut collection editorial lookbook! The giveaway are Five $100 URBAN DECAY vouchers up for grabs for my reader readers.



Oh thunder in my heart...



and I was in a cornerbooth thinking
(pretending to read)... 

I created my first Treasury on Etsy featuring a bunch of cute modern items, handmade & vintage! My favorite is Jesi's painting of a whale. I have followed this girl's art for years & I'm a huge fan. You can visit her shop here: jesiiii 





You gotta jump, jump over the island like a gazelle.
You gotta jump over the island
like a new long legged gazelle...

I'm also selling through Vinted & Depop

Yeah they went wild...



Out in the endless green
Your eyes are so misleading


 
 What a dream to just be walking on the ground
What a time to live among the ashen remnants of our love
It came before and I'm still looking for that now

 Since I'm going to be shooting the majority of the summer by myself I decided to get a camera bag backpack so that way I can comfortably carry my gear without recklessly throwing it into my purse. This cute little Swedish Kånken No.2 from FjällRäven is going to be the new home for my cameras when I'm outside with them. The photo insert can be purchased separately if you just want a plain backpack!

Another reason I liked this idea so much is the fact that the bag doesn't look like a camera bag at all. So, people will not know that I am carrying valuable equipment with me by just looking at the bag when closed.




My new camera bag!


I cant wait to receive this babe in the mail!

They seem wild but they are so tame.
They're moving towards you with their colors all the same



Lets go swimsuit shopping!...internet window shopping :p


Last night was my highly anticipated date to see Metronomy live for the first time. I could not bear the excitement knowing them since 2008 as my last high school year was nearing its end and I would blast their album Nights Out at 6am in the morning while getting ready for school.



Read more, oh yes....there's more! 



Thursday night I attended my 2nd Lookbook.nu Party
& this time guess who I finally had the great pleasure to meet!



So my weekend pretty much began when Nylon picked me to go see Baths live this Friday.
I got home and styled an outfit for the show and was bouncing off the walls.


Your bones
Your voice
And your ghost


There's still some goodies & gems in the blog's shop! I'm so happy I sold some things already to help me get through the last bit of this college semester. Thank you guys <3 I have a lot of items from Topshop and a few vintage ones. Send me your best offer if you'd like :)

I might be adding a style of sunglasses to sell more than 1 pair so more than one person can get a hold of these adorable, vintage inspired round sunglasses! Let me know what you think!
