Chicago- Tall Ship Windy Portraits

In the summer, before I started blogging, I did what was probably my favorite photo shoot to date. A friend of mine reached out to me because they were visiting Chicago and wanted to do a cosplay shoot with me on the Tall Ship Windy. I agreed to it because it seemed like such an exciting experience, completely forgetting for a few minutes that I'm terrified of being on boats. Oops. I wasn't too nervous getting on the ship because my friend introduced me to the person who lived and worked aboard the ship (how cool is it to LIVE on a ship?!) and they put me completely at ease. It was truly such an exhilarating experience that I will never forget. I absolutely love "unconventional" shooting locations.
