I completely skipped over this fun yet extremely cold event. After shooting at the Magic Lounge I decided that I wanted to put together a spring photoshoot event in Chinatown and Bridgeport, both very artsy and beautiful neighborhoods of Chicago. I had such a great time networking at the Magic Lounge that I knew I wanted to work with the same photographers and Make up Artist & Hair(MUAH).
It was April 29th I believe and it rained the night before and the high for the day was estimated to be 42F and the event began at 9:00am. However, rain or shine, the show must go on. Main reason being…we as creatives need to know how to adjust to get the perfect image in the conditions we are dealt with. Its our job and what sets us apart from other production teams. Plus we all have vehicles with heat and I had tons of heavy vintage blankets and hats to wrap around us in between shoots and outfit changes.
However, cold is never fun and wet and cold is even worse. Not to mention, we had two models that didn’t show up that day. Luckily, we had a wonderful MUAH, named Kendal Stanek, who jumped in and modeled for us. You would have thought that Kendal has been modeling for years with the content she produced. Noor Khalid and Ashley Fein, also provided MUAH for this event, along with Alex Callejo, Joe Underbakke and James Boyland as the photographers. I sure do love this group! xoxox
