Last night I was so honored to attend the grand opening party,  hosted by chief creative officer Christopher Bailey, for the brand new Michigan Avenue flagship at 633 North Michigan Avenue and to celebrate the Art of the Trench street-style photos of Chicagoans wearing iconic trenchcoats. It was surreal to see my photographs blown up on interactive video screens displayed on all five levels of the store. Burberry truly brought Chicago to life last night.

See me photographing Jena on State Street at the :25 mark!

Many of the people I photographed came up to me to share how touched they were by my photos of them, which is the most a photographer can ask for. When I’m told  “your photo of me captured me as a person… my spirit. It’s like the essence of me was distilled into a photograph,” that is such a moving thing to hear as a photographer (thanks Graham!). With my street-style photos, the entire point is to capture and reveal people for who they are. When other people can see that, it means the world to me.

All the compliments, love and support from everyone who reads my blog and follows my work moved me to tears last night. I cannot thank you enough, Chicago, for being the city where my dreams have come true.


  1. What a great event. I wish I could’ve been there (Even though I might have blacked out like a crazy fan girl in the presence of Christopher Bailey…)
    You truly are an amazing photographer. I’m so excited for you that you had this opportunity.

    Wonderful and Marvelous
