My first time in Chicago was a solo business trip and I fell in love with the city. I surprised my wife with a quick 4 day weekend in Chicago for her 30th birthday. Let me tell you how amazing my wife truly is, when she found out I booked she immediately said “you should book some shoots while we are there”. I kept it light and just booked enough shoots to cover the air fare. It was an amazing trip where I was able to reconnect with a couple of my favorite Chicagoans and met some new ones in the process. The shoots included shoots with Casey Short and Danny Colaprico of the NWSL Chicago Red Stars soccer team, Barry’s Bootcamp and FlyWheel instructor Allie White, and sessions with new friends and Chicago yoga instructors Kathryn Gongaware and April Falcon. I can’t wait for another trip to Chicago!
