  • MJ | University of Illinois graduate headshot

  • MJ is a graduate student in the theater department at Illinois. She needed a headshot to send in with an application, so I met up with her at her normal stomping grounds - the Krannert Center - for a few quick images. I love that she had her makeup done for this session -- it really sets the images[...]
  • Headshots for two, please

  • Great Christmas idea!
