It’s been a busy summer and I cannot believe how quickly it has gone! I’ve been photographing a number of events and performances since the beginning of June and I’ve done a horrible job of updating my site with new work.

These first five photographs are from Matter Dance Company during their production of Page Turner at Stage773. I took these photos in early June and I’m still in love with the performance—it was an absolute thrill to see and to photograph.

These are a few of my favorite moments during the July performance of Magic Chicago. If you’ve never been before, I recommend going! It was hard to hide my curiosity and wonder during each performance while I worked. It was captivating!

There were so many moments during WOZ: A Rock Cabaret that I enjoyed—it was a bit difficult to narrow down the image selection. The show was beautiful, fun, and silly. Everyone was fantastic and it was a wonderful experience. If you’ve never seen this show before, I hope you get the chance to watch it the next time it comes around.
