Scott endured the freezing cold in order to show off his tattoos. Once the weather gets better, I will be calling him back for another shoot. He has far more work done on him than is seen here– and it’s constantly evolving.

This is from my first official portrait shoot. Olivia is on the left, and Natalie is on the right. Both women are really good friends and got lost in conversation while we hung out at New Wave Coffee in Logan Square. For me this was great because a) I was allowed to become invisible, b) the lighting was great, and c) both are very natural in this shot.

This is my friend, Geraldo. He is a freelance graphic designer. I hung out with him at his home for a couple hours and shot away while he worked. He’s very much a multi-tasker, but on occasion he can get lost in his work.
