Maria’s Packaged Goods – Time Out Chicago

12 May

A big thanks to the super awesome photographer, Dave Rentauskas for asking me to style this entrepreneurial family who own the bar/liquor store, Maria’s Packaged Goods and Community Bar.  Ed Marszewski, the creative engine behind the bar, a couple of art zines, and one of the coolest art spaces in town, Co-Prosperity Sphere, was chosen as Time Out’s Chip Off the Old Block.  The kicker behind this shoot was that we couldn’t tell the family why we were photographing them AND I was directed to dress them in matching outfits.  The challenge was to not make them feel like the Partridge family and finding wardrobe that still made them look like the hip people they are, while keeping the art director’s wishes.  They were great sports, easy to photograph, and in the end look like a band I’d want to be  part of.  If you haven’t visited Marias Packaged Goods in Beverly, I highly suggest you do so.  Killer Manhattans.
