Grafton, Illinois |Travel Photographer |St. Louis Photographer

A few weeks ago we took the ferry over to Grafton, IL.  WHO KNEW!??  Such a fun day trip.  Think Sturgis meets Destin, Florida meets the Mississippi River.  The town and people were amazing!  Flee markets, Jimmy Buffet playing on the speakers, live music, good food.  See below some of the places we discovered and people along the way.

Michael's Challenge |St. Louis Photographer| Model | Inspiration

One of my goals for the year is to push myself out of my comfort zone.  Try new things.  Be creative more often.  Surround myself with creative, inspiring people.  So this weekend I grabbed Emily (who is 15 and is my good friend Rebecca's daughter) . and headed to our local Michaels Arts and Crafts store.  There is a challenge going around social media called #michaelschallenge--encouraging photographers to shoot good photos in poor locations.  So we did it.  And on the way home we stopped under a bridge, at a car wash and a Kentucky Fried Chicken.  I shot these for myself, for fun, for practice, for a challenge.  ENJOY!
