Say hello to Hannah, our Leasing Director at #Aqua ! 👋
Her love for adventure has taken her to 24 countries! She has gone snowboarding in the Andes, swam with sharks in the Galapagos, & went sky-diving! 😁🌎✈️ Hannah joined the Magellan family & Aqua team for 4 years again & we’re so glad she did! 🤗 #TeamSpotlight
It's been forever and a day since I've posted for my Inspiration Portrait Series, but I have a few more to share with all of you. 🤓 Starting it back up with one of my absolute favorite photographers, @Sandy.Noto.
Sandy is a food and travel photographer based in Chicago. (You have probably seen her beautiful work with @Infatuation_Chi ). She got her first camera about 5 or 6 years ago while she was working as a front-end developer. She started doing a lot of commercial work and later worked with One Off hospitality. After a year at One Off, she went freelance and has been doing so for about a year and a half to two years.
I wanted to highlight Sandy not only because she is crazy successful and produces amazing work, but because she is a truly generous person. She's a pool of knowledge when it comes to all things photography and is incredibly business savvy. She has been a sort of mentor to me and a true inspiration.
Some random things that most people don't know about Sandy - Her first language is Polish; she's known her husband for 15 years and been together for 12 years; she once tackled a guy that tried to rob her; she went to nationals in h.s. as a lightweight rower (then ate all the cake and ice cream for the next three months). Sandy is extremely proud of the people and projects that she currently works with. On a more personal side, she's extraordinarily proud of her relationship with her husband Eli. "I hate when people say that 'marriage is work' because that sounds like a slog. It's mostly wonderful but there are occasional compromises that have to happen. The relationship is so much more than the little things you let go along the way". I couldn't agree more. 🙂 (Sorry for taking forever to post this, Sandy! It's probably time for new/updated pics haha).
You didn’t tell me we were smiling with teeth? Well, I guess it doesn’t matter how you smile when you’ve been coming up on good watermelons like this. Who else is having watermelon today? I just sliced open this beauty and have also been tearing through ice box watermelons as well. I can honestly say the taste is finally up to par after a couple down years here in the Midwest in my opinion. Why the watermelon craze? It’s the most alkalizing fruit filled with vitamins and minerals that helps flush and clean the kidneys, move bowels, reduce high blood pressure, produce energy, strengthen bones and keep you hydrated while being made up of 90% water. Who’s interested in doing watermelon fast/feast? #watermelonwednesday 🍉
Still suffering from #royalwedding envy? The cure just might be this strawberry Baba au Rhum at @nicoosteria, made with elderflower cake and lemon-mascarpone mousse, marcona almonds and strawberry-ricotta gelatto. Fit for a queen (or a Duchess of Sussex).
I had the pleasure to try some of most refreshing dishes at @tantachicago at a business lunch. 😍😍 Saw my beautiful friend @clare_makes_things
Face on the billboard! #Chicagofoodies what are some of your bucket lists for chicago restaurants? 😘😘
