Hola! I’m Suzy. I am a mommy of twin boys, photographer & craft artist based in Chicago. I started photography and crafting at a young age and most of my skills are self-taught.  I love creating and capturing pretty things. I enjoy eating good food, exploring new places, spending time with great friends and indulging in the occasional craft beer.

Fun fact: I met my boyfriend at a Brewery back in 2013. We now have this thing where we visit as many Breweries as possible each yr. Current count is 12.
