Chicago Bliss {Commercial Photographer}

What an amazing shoot. Absolutely loved this experience from start to finish. Oxygen was a dream client and the women of the Chicago Bliss were so much fun to work with, had so much energy and were so engaged with the young girls we had on set.

The idea behind this shoot was (1) promote Oxygen’s new show Pretty. Strong. about these badass, football playing women and (2) showcase these women as the athletes and role models that they are.  I am really proud of the work we did.  The shoot was great collaboration between the Bliss, the young girls that came to set (including my two daughters and niece), and the camera crew who was there to film it all.  I have to say, wearing a live mic the entire shoot was a new experience for me.  🙂

We shot in downtown Chicago at one of the local parks, had some typical September Chicago weather, some rain, some sun and some wind.  I absolutely love the rain shots.  They work so well with these ready for anything women and girls.

Here is the video from our shoot.

Also an interview with me about duck face, other badass women and general stuff.  🙂

Samantha - I found your blog via the A Mighty Girl facebook page. I love your photos! The perspective, composition, and subject matter are all marvelous.

I’m a huge fan of american football, too, and adore these photos you took of strong women players.

Do you have a photobook available? I’d love to share these with my students (I teach at a women’s university in Tokyo) in print form, if possible.
