I have a Tuesday treat for our readers, courtesy of some wonderful and talented Chicago friends!
Despite being an Instagram and Pinterest fanatic, I’m always a bit uncomfortable in front of the camera. But when Chicago photographer Britta Marie approached me about doing a series of pictures on behalf of the blog, I decided to jump out of my comfort zone and go for it. A Lakeview resident like myself, Britta focuses on wedding photography, but is working more and more with Chicago media. And after all the fun we had with our L&C shoot, you can keep your eyes peeled for her photos in our upcoming feature with fellow Chicago bloggers Kel&Kate as well. Britta got right to business but made the whole “photo shoot” idea almost as fun as it seems when the stars do it.
And thanks to the handy work of the Goldplaited staff, I was able to have someone not only explain how to use lip liner, but also give me curls that actually lasted overnight and were perfect for work the next day. Another Lakeview/Lincoln Park brand, Goldplaited is my favorite blow dry bar in the city so far. It’s always a treat to go there, but it was definitely needed pre-photo shoot. They know how to make a girl feel shiny and, well…golden!
