My morning started as each wonderful morning with a young toddler does- my little boy wakes in the early; we lift the shades in his room and say, "Good Morning Chicago!!! It's Mama and Ojas!!" And, what a Good Morning it was! Hair and make-up were done by the AMAZING Tina, of Studio 110 at 7:00am --Tina had her wisdom teeth pulled yesterday AND today was her "day off" but here she was early in the morning to make this Mama and Owner of Pyar&Co ready for her first photoshoot! My nerves were crazy!
The shoot was held at the amazing showroom- and I mean Ah-Mazing space of Buckingham Interios + Design , between the over-sized silver crown; the fascinating yellow Caesar statue or the stunning fuchsia chairs- something needs to leave the showroom by my side!

Directions were called from behind the camera, "Smile!" "Laugh!" "Flirty look!" "No smile." Just looking around at the setting I found myself reflecting in what I have been doing this past year- where we have come from - the simple dream.. When Pyar&Co started, my son was four months old; our Good Morning Chicago waves- started with just Mama waving for the two of us...
The directions were given,
"Look Down....." (visions of daily grind dance through my head)
"Now--Up at the Camera!" (Is this real?)
" Awesome shot!" (Awesome yes; Unreal absolutely!)
I still find it unreal to grasp that the designs of these pieces, simply started thru imagination/inspiration/dreams and beyond.
Looking forward to sharing more with you in January!!
