With the warm, sunshiny goodness that Chicago has been enjoying lately, surely you can forgive me for neglecting my blogging duties? Earlier this week, Amanda and I spent a little time at Diversey Harbor enjoying the views and the boats and the general loveliness of the day. I admit that shooting portraits in full sun makes me a little hesitant, but this time I decided to just embrace the dappled lighting and general… well, brightness. I think it went quite well. What do you think?

See more images from this session on the city|view photography Facebook page. And become a fan while you’re there!


I’ll be traveling to Georgia this summer, so if you are interested in a session send me an email to: anna (at) cityviewphoto (dot) com. I will be there beginning July 17th and staying at least a week, both on the coast and in NE Georgia.

Looking forward to seeing y’all!

Long time, no post! Now that the weather is [unpredictable, but] nice, things are starting to pick up at city|view photography. But I need to make updating the blog more of a priority… what better way to start that, than with some images of someone you might recognize?!

This week was the first official Big Swap Bonanza, brought to us lucky Chicagoans by the same folks who bring us the Chicago Antique Market. I had a fabulous time photographing the event, where I got to meet and photograph Design on a Dime’s Frank Fontana!!

Tell me that wasn’t worth getting up at 5am for (: And somehow I managed to stop myself from begging him to come decorate the newly-built loft/office that has consumed much of my life the last two months.

More images from this event to come, including the cutest salt & pepper shakers evah, a pogo-sticking U of Chicago student, and some rockin’ rockabillies (Pearls Mahone and the One-Eyed Jacks)!

Until then,

You can now sign up for the new and improved city|view photography newsletter, which is delivered straight to your email inbox! It is a great way to find out about specials, promotions, news, events, and everything else you want and need to know about city|view photography (:
