I got to enjoy the early morning view from the lakeshore recently with this happy family.  Loved it!

It was not so very long ago that we had Jim in the studio.

Last week found us outside on a beautiful Sunday afternoon taking some post-birthday portraits of these guys.

The last week (plus change) has seen several visits to the studio, and since the weather in Chicago is just starting to feel vaguely hospitable again, we even started going outside for a few shots.  We kept the tone a little bit blue, though because – let’s be honest – Chicago has a long way to go still before I forgive it for this winter.

I’ve had the great pleasure in recent months of capturing portraits and headshots for students at the Music Institute of Chicago, based out of Evanston, Illinois.  These kids are bona fide rock stars, and it’s been amazing to have them in the studio, to get them in front of the camera, and to hear them play.  Here’s a handful.

I love Chicago, but I’ll tell ya.  Sometimes.  Hoo boy.  It is…. just so cold out there.

In that spirit, I thought I’d post some portraits from back when it was sort of pleasant out.  Let’s gather ’round the campfire and remember, shall we?

August, you guys, and I haven’t posted here since… April, it looks like?  Part of that, yes, was plain old garden variety negligence.  The other part, though, was a busy darned summer.  Busy enough that to write posts for everything was… hard.  So, you get everything in digest form, and maybe then I can call myself Up to Speed.
