Our trip to CHICAGO!!

 I know I am waaaaaay behind on my family blog but...better late than never! 
Back in October Jonathon and I got to go on a fun little vacation to CHICAGO! When I discovered the photographer, Audrey Woulard, five years ago I have wanted to attend one of her workshops. So I wrote it on my goal list last year and viola'...I got to go!

We stayed in the awesome James Hotel right off the Magnificent Mile. We didn't even have to rent a car. We took the "L" from the airport straight to our hotel. And everywhere else we just walked.

Obviously we don't drink but the cabinet looked so cool!

The soaps smelled sooooo good! It was fun that they were all in huge bottles in the shower but I was sad I couldn't take any home. :)

cool pillow in our room.

The photography workshop was 2 days. One the first day we got to take a few pictures of some of Audrey's models. It was really fun. To be honest, I didn't learn a ton just because I'm already pretty far down the photography road. Had I gone 5 years ago it would have be SO enlightning. But I'm still really glad I went. I was able to network with a lot of other photographers and get to know some great girls.

That's Audrey on the left.

Jonathon and I walked all around downtown.

Lake Michigan. 
The weather wasn't super cold but cold for me. And while we were here on the beach some guy stripped down to his swimsuit and jumped right in the cold water. brrrrr. I was cold just watching him.

Out only shot together. :)

The Navy Pier!

More walking around downtown. Poor Mary's Cafe. I wonder what happened...

While we were there we decided to take advantage of the coolness of it all and take some pictures for Jonathon's up coming album...

Handsome, isn't he?
