Gobble Gobble

Let's see, Thanksgiving. A day to be thankful for all that you have followed by a day to curse for all that you've spent. I tell you one thing that I'm thankful for, I'm thankful I no longer have food poisoning. Yeah, that wasn't fun. (and yes I know it looks like I've lost weight, not eating solid food for 3 days tends to do that to you). I will be spending this Thanksgiving, (as I do every Thanksgiving) evaluating where I've been, where I am, and where I see myself next year at this time. . . . . . . . oh, and re-touching. I will not be spending it with my family because 1. I just saw them last week. B. because I will see them again in 2 weeks. and 3. because they could probably use the break. Truthfully though, I am very thankful for all that I have, great family and friends and a job that I love, and I will do my best not to take them or it for granted. Now back to business. Above are some images of Jessica we took during my last trip to Chicago! . . . . . . By the way, she could be the nicest person I've ever met. Period. Plus she drives a black Jeep Wrangler, (which was my first and only car), so she gets bonus points. . . . . . man I loved that car.

Oui, It's Been Awhile

Since my last post we've had 5, no make that 6 shoots. It ran the gamut from high end de-lux apartments in the sky, to an amazing motel, (that I've wanted to shoot at for over a year), where we had to pay by the hour. Both equally incredible in their own right. The high end shoot took place on Chicago's Gold Coast. We shot in the penthouse apartment complete with it's own library and a "Great" room, which, you guessed it, was very good. The subsequent shoot took place at this motel on the south side whose rooms might not have had a library, but you could rent one where the bed looks like a sandwich, and no I'm not kidding, a sandwich. The weather for both shoots was amazing for November, (70 and sunny), the kind of weather I waited all summer long for but never got. I'm in the process of re-touching all the images this week, but here are 2 samples, one from each shoot. Can you tell which ones from which location??? Also check out the fall story we shot at the beach last week here, it's entitled "L Automne A La Mer", which I thought translated into "The Car from March", but I guess translates into "Autumn by the Sea", which makes much more sense.
