Chicago architectural lifestyle photographer
I worked with Bob to write website copy that repositioned him as a shooter with modern architectural lifestyle sensibilities. Within 4 months of website launch, Bob had been contacted by dream clients Herman Miller, The Land of Nod and Target’s creative group in Minneapolis.
SUSAN BRADLEY DESIGNS
Susan Bradley learned that she’d become the first Minnesota designer to be recognized with an International Fashion Institute Award. The awards ceremony was held at the Walker Museum. The Fashion Institute’s theme for the evening was “A Gathering of Stars”. I crafted an acceptance speech tailored to Susan’s objectives: to honor the clients, colleagues and friends who had supported her work, and to reflect the evening’s theme.
SUSAN BRADLEY ACCEPTANCE SPEECH
As I look around the room this evening,
I see inspirational and esteemed colleagues, generous and loyal supporters, and very dear friends and family.
That all of you, whom I hold in such high regard,
have recognized my work
is an extraordinary honor for me.
To each of you in the Fashion Group,
it is my deep privilege to be a member of this organization.
Your talent, professional generosity, and vision
have been my support and my inspiration.
You are my colleagues, and my friends,
and your presence in my life is a gift for which I’m endlessly grateful.
To my supporters and clients,
Fashion, no matter how beautiful, is not truly meaningful unless it is worn.
To each of the stunning women who bring my work to life
with elegance and vibrancy and grace,
there is no greatest compliment you could pay me.
Finally, to my husband,
who has believed in me from the very first stitch,
and supported me with tireless encouragement, endearing humor,
and an unshakable faith which still leaves me breathless,
your love gives wings to my dreams.
From where I stand, it is all of you who are the stars this evening.
You are my stars.
