Katie was back in town for a wedding and I was so lucky we both had a free day to hangout and shoot (cause--you know--she's amazing).
Every year for my birthday, I buy myself a dress (this year I went a bit overboard and bought three). This year the theme was "Self-Portrait" dresses and Katie was amazing enough to shoot me in them!

Bright colors and cool jeans are the best way to live! If you know me, you know I am a jeans whore. I'm always looking for cool new jeans and cool ways to use them. When I was told about Dearborn Denim I knew I had to try these jeans and see their store.
All I have to say is SO COMFORTABLE!!! Thanks to Kaleb for letting us use the clothes from the Dearborn Denim store and for helping make this shoot possible!
Imagine this: A beautiful Sunday morning exploring Northwestern University, complete with funky socks and sleek glasses, with a photographer who you've wanted to work with for a long time.
As we were walking around Northwestern, we found a hidden staircase behind the library, where we originally wanted to shoot, but there was too much scaffolding. We ended up finding a gorgeous garden hidden away from the touring students and parents. We managed to make it our own.

I shot with Baldwin Cunningham and it was AWESOME!!!
Check out his work here!
The reason for the release of these images TODAY is because tomorrow is my boyfriend's birthday!!!
Recently, my boyfriend and I did a shoot based on The Goodrich Wife's most popular post (here). Ben was kind enough to do this shoot with me that leaves us with pictures that last a lifetime.
So without further adieu, here is the tribute to my incredible boyfriend and one of my best friends:
When we first met, I told your sister you were the most incredible person I've ever met. When we reconnected, I told her again you were the most incredible person I've ever met. And now that we've been together for awhile, that sentiment continues to rings true.
Through your kindness, hard work, understanding and calm presence you make everyone's lives better.
Traveling to legit the other side of the world with you was one of the best memories I've ever had, and I couldn't have done that trip with anyone but you.
I'm so happy I can spend your birthday with you and celebrate our relationship every day. You're so incredible and I'm very thankful to have you in my life.
Happy 28th Birthday Ben!

I was so excited with Michael was back in town and needed models to shoot, the one weekend in between touring he was off!!!
Thanks so much to Michael for shooting with me and getting such amazing images out of our shoot! I can't wait until you move back to Chicago!!!
Photographer: MAQ Vision
Photography/Incredible Person Cred: Jennee Johnson
So, I'm SOOOO excited to release these images since they're actually my favorite I've EVER shot!
I've been a fan of Jennee's work for a LONGGGG time and I was so excited when she needed a model for a last minute shoot. We ended up shooting these dope sets, and I couldn't be happier with the result. Not only did I get to work with a bomb photographer, but I also got to meet dope and incredible person.
Shooting a music video is fun, but doing it with my best friend and shooting for someone who's music I truly believe in is the best.
I had met Emily previously through my boyfriend, who's a music manager. We'd really hit it off and, not only is she incredibly sweet, but also a talented musician. Having gone to her album release party, buying a CD and getting super into her music since I've heard it, when she said she needed models I jumped at the opportunity!
If you guys have been following my blog for awhile, someone who is consistently in my life is Audrey. She is my best friend and rock. That's why when Emily Blue needed another model for her music video, I KNEW I had to get my gorgeous best friend in on it.
The whole team was absolutely incredible and talented and worked so hard through the night to accomplish this music video, and I couldn't be happier with the result!
Hope you guys love the video (and obviously the song) too!

One photographer who I've wanted to work with for a long time now has been Vic! I was so lucky timing worked out and Vic was down to shoot together.
I love the grungy and sexy look this shoot provides, it's something I've wanted to redo for a while.

Oh Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I have scheduled various posts on all forms of social media including my blog, but I will be in China and Thailand during the month of July so posting will be erratic.
In order to get some much needed time away from Chicago, my boyfriend and I are jet setting off to Shanghai and Thailand.
I will be posting travel photos to my Instagram if you would like to keep updated on my latest adventures.
Feel free to send me emails/messages/ect. and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
As a model for over five years, I find myself learning new things everyday. This blog is a way to share my stories, images that may not be on my main board, and interesting things abut modeling and my life.
