180 Miles to Cecilia


"I signed up for a photography class WHERE???"

It was 10pm and I had just realized the studio we were scheduled to shoot at the following morning was located in Davenport, Iowa, a three hour drive from my native Chicago.

Apparently, I'm not the best at geography and I foolishly thought Chicago was one of the "quad cities," along with Milwaukee, Indianapolis, and... who knows what I was thinking. I discovered I was incorrect. So at 4am I set out on the 180 mile journey to the real quad cities and had one of the best photo shoots of my life.

Thank you Dasha Denger for organizing this shoot!
