Happy Place | Editorial with Lauren Rebecca Roth

After taking a painfully long (and actually painful) hiatus from creating anything while my back healed, I was SO excited to get some creativity going with the beautiful Lauren Rebecca Roth at Happy Place while it was in Chicago! This was the first time I was able to hold my camera without a monopod since my injury and it was so scary + exciting to walk around for a few hours with Lauren and take super fun photos and get to know each other! Y'all, this place was happy - M&M's when you walk in, big colorful displays that changed drastically from room to room, and a giant rubber ducky. Honestly amazing. 

Thanks so much to you Lauren for asking me to photograph you and for hanging out with me for the day! :)
