Dominican University: The Grace House Project

Dominican University: The Grace House Project

Last week I was invited by Dominican University to do a commercial photography shoot involving head shots and full body portraits for their fashion design students who have been creating custom fit and tailored garments for the women at Grace House, a transitional living residence in Chicago.   The women of Grace House who are on the upswing, putting their lives back together and preparing to rejoin the workforce, worked closely with their designer for weeks to create the outfit that best matched their style and personality.

This was such an awesome assignment as there was nothing less than excitement and really a feeling of empowerment as these women, who are unaccustomed to being professionally photographed, came on to the set and just owned it! They were confidant, stunning and incredibly comfortable in front of the camera.

The Chicago Tribune came by as well for their feature story which you can check out here and make sure to look for yours truly in the video!

Thanks to Dominican University and the ladies over at Grace House for such a fantastic and memorable day!
