Pianissimo! had a very long, fun-filled day of our first ensemble photo shoot. Starting out early by 9am, we carpooled all together in my "Ms Piano"mobile..( A Ford Escape- yes, that's my license plate!) heading for a marvelously talented group of hair stylists and makeup artists at Steven Papageorge Academy in Lincoln Park. Our stylist/designer Benjamin Cottrell met us there, along with our photographer Carlos Rudolfo Chinchilla. Our first informal poses were shot right there at the studio, then we had make-up and hair re-dos to prep for our "formal" shot. Mother Nature was in full force, so it took some time to arrive at our "glamour photo shoot" destination! We could not have accomplished any of this without the incredible talent and vision of our dear friend and colleague, Ani Gogova, who arranged the entire photo shoot for us and was with us every step of the way. Irina, Svetlana, Elena and I are so grateful to have worked with this wonderful team who will help us launch our new Piansisimo! ensemble with great, fun, cutting-edge fashion photography. Hugs to our new friends! Can't wait to post our new photos!
