Katie | Chicago Fashion Photographer

Katie and I always seem to come up with bigger and better ideas every time we collaborate. This would be our third time working together and it was by far my favorite of them all! From the beginning, I knew this would be focused on Fall Fashion but I really wanted it to be something different and out of the ordinary for me. I decided to come up with this theme of it being vintage inspired. Very much from the 40’s era. Initially, we were going to take our adventure into the city, but when we started to find all of our props around her house, I quickly decided that this needed to be somewhere serene and private. So came the main idea of us to do a “blanket/picnic” type set up.

Everything you see here was all thanks to Katie’s amazing fashion sense and her mother’s wonderful collection of all things vintage! We hit the jackpot to say the least! I really hope to continue stepping out of the box like this. It was a breath of fresh air for me. I also messed around with freelensing…a lot. It’s something new I learned about recently and cannot get enough of it! You can see it showcased in many of these images! I love these to pieces and I truly hope you feel like you’ve stepped back in time for a small moment!
