Janelle Stevenson contacted me because it was time for a great new portrait for her social media use. I suggested shooting in a park so that we could capture our Chicago colors now that the good weather is finally here again!
You just can't beat natural light. I recently moved to another space in my building and largely it was to give me a whole bunch of natural light shooting options. Lifestyle portraits are really the only portraits today and this new space gives me options rain or shine. Chicago Artist Paige Lunde needed some portraits and we had a lot of fun using the natural light of the studio and also the great strobe light of the Elinchrom Octa (bottom photo). Still trying to find a boom that will hold that beast!
