So let me tell you about this amazing woman named Stephanie Manriquez. I met Steph officially by email. I was interested in shooting for FMEL and she was like YES!... we have no one now who is officially shooting so we'd love to have you on our team in 2010. From then on she became one of the greatest friends I have had in Chicago by far. She let me stay with her when we worked late and when I use to live in the suburbs. She gives the best advice for work, life, love life (haha). But when she asked if I could photographed her Abuelitos (grandparents) last month I said of course and this is what came out. 

Love you Steph!
