attention southern california

photos by anni cee photograhie, wedding and lifestyle photography extraordinaire

My lovely pal Anni is going on a West Coast adventure and bringing her trusty camera along but I’ll let her tell you about it:

Hey everyone! My name is Anni, and you may have seen my work around here during one of the many collaborations Dennise and I partnered up to create. (See here)

I’m thrilled to be a regular part of such a well-curated blog, and since I know you all are a stylish bunch, I asked Dennise if I could give a shout-out on here about my upcoming trip to California. 

I’ll be offering a limited number of photo sessions in SoCal (although if we can round up a few people in another part of the state who want shoots, or if you’re interested in wedding photos, my travel dates are flexible) and I’ll be staying in Los Angeles and Palm Springs from December 26th through January 5th. 

I love photographing just about any kind of creative session, whether it’s an engagement, a wedding, a lifestyle session, or editorial work. If you’re interested, or have any questions, drop me a note at Thanks so much and I hope to see some of you in sunny California – it’s currently 30 degrees and windy here in Chicago, so I’m counting down the days!

Oh dresses, I can never get enough of them. Even as winter approaches, I am still on the hunt for some pretties I can layer with tights and cardigans and these lovelies by The Velvet Bird fit the bill perfectly. Plus, how cute is the designer behind these dresses? I feel a girl crush coming on..

Remember Caitlin Kerr, the floral genius behind my all about floral shoot? Well, she is once again a floral genius, this time behind this photo series that I can’t wait to see more of! I’m dying to work with her again, I just love her work!

I took a few days off from blogging this week to finish a big freelance project I’ve been working on. I can’t tell you how good it feels to finish a project that has consumed me the last couple of months. I also told myself that once I finished this project, I’d get serious about working on my online portfolio, so stay tuned for that.

Happy Friday! xo

I’ve been thinking that I need to frequent more art shows and exhibits, I really want to support the Chicago art scene and artists and well, going out to see this art would be a great first step. As I browsed through the exhibits currently at the Andrew Rafacz Gallery, I stumbled upon the rad work of Zachary Buchner and fell in love with his work. Happy Monday!

I seem to be finding the most amazing geometric work lately and it makes me so happy, this project by Sergio Guijarro titled Atlas is so freakin’ rad, I can’t even stand it!

year of astronomy by pepper & cinnamon

It’s no secret that this gal is a huge fan of geometric design and so this project by pepper & cinnamon is right up my alley. I realize 2009 has come and gone but let’s all agree that a calendar like this one will still always be awesome, even in 2050.

I mentioned the Indo Projects the other day because Linsey Burritt’s awesome apartment was the setting for our last shoot, but I couldn’t resist posting about their amazing work. Did I mention that they use discarded items in their work, pretty incredible stuff, huh?
