What we’ve called love isn’t love. It’s anxiety, insecurity, uncertainty, which is thrilling but exhausting and ultimately short lived.

New photo work from the marriage ceremony of Katie & Cyrus. I absolutely loved spending the day working with them and their awesome family. With every wedding I am blessed to shoot, I love the art of it more and more. Generally I’m in love with love. (Typical saying but true.) 
More photos coming really soon! They were such a joy to work with!

Peet’s Coffee has finally replaced my beloved Caribou Coffee. Giving it a first try today, not the same but not so bad. I guess this will have to do for the winter. I definitely miss the real chocolate candy pieces added in to the hot chocolates. #peetscoffee #cariboucoffee #chicago #coffeeshop #coffee

I’m out “supposedly” window shopping and saw these, and I want all the ones with nice quotes and designs. I don’t know why but I have this love for really nice notebooks. I probably have too many already from my writing years. Even now I carry a notebook almost everywhere (if I don’t I rely on my cellphone notepad) It must be a Creative thing…. #stationary #design #thecreativelife #inspiration #notebooks #blankpages #writing #possibilities

Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

Everytime I come here I see something in the work that I haven’t before. I love the way inner city minority kids have access to this exhibit where they possibly haven’t had an experience with visual art before and can see themselves or see that they can be artists too! Glad @hebrubrantley is one of Chicago’s own. #hebrubrantley #chicago #art #paradedayrain

National Moment of Silence in Chicago has taken the streets. Standing against police brutality. Everybodies so young and on fire to change things. We have to find the next steps to take though or else we’ll keep losing. #nmos14 #nmoschicago14

"Black lives matter" NMS14. What happens after the gathering though?
