First Birthday (Fogo Style)

Living in Chicago for nearly a decade I’ve somehow never made it to one of our most popular Brazilian steak houses (yes we have more than one): Fogo de Chao. As irony would have it, I finally made an appearance for this recent event as a full blown vegetarian. At any rate, I spent most of […]

The guests at this 1st birthday party would agree there are few things to rival such pure fun. I had such a great time photographing this family and their little son who has made it through […]
