I really, really like these | How About Orange

I really, really like these

Our friend Janet Moran offered us a free photography session in exchange for a couple of paintings. We just got the pictures she took of us—and she's a genius! She led us around her neighborhood in Rogers Park and managed to find all kinds of interesting places to snap photos. (Don't you love that sticker?) So if you're in the Chicago area, hurry and book Oijoy Photo for a shoot before all of Janet's time slots fill up.

You 2 are beautiful and your photographer has a wonderful and fresh approach. Her style is lovely. How do you manage to find so much good stuff to share... such a delight for us. Thank you.

Gorgeous photographs. For all the time I've been stalking your blog I think this is the first pic I've seen.

The sticker is great.

Allow me to say that Alex certainly photographs well; better than some gentlemen I could mention. I am certain it's the company he's keeping.

all over the map said...

I like the one of you two of under the arches. I like the top you are wearing too!

Jess said...

Oh, why thank you. Actually Janet remarked at one point, "I should have told you not to wear white!" Oops. Probably because white gets too bright and loses detail? Or reflects too much? Anyhow, don't wear white to a photo shoot is what I learned.

Jess said...

Very funny, JCaroline.

And Good N Crazy, it was just a couple of viney ones. I don't know if I have pictures anywhere. Sorry!
