Last Friday, I was taking my daily afternoon nap when I received a phone call from my neighbor Jamie Dragisic screaming: "GG, SHE CAME!!!! GG, SHE CAME!!!" I couldn’t figure out what was going on, who came? what? "GG, SHE CAME, TURN ON YOUR FACETIME CAMERA." And there she was— Chicago’s Mayor Lightfoot stuck to her front door window.
I had no idea that she ordered a life-size cardboard cutout. I jumped out of bed, told Jamie to take her off the window and to get dressed because we were going to do a photoshoot. I never planned to do it, never thought about it, until I saw her. And the idea was born right there, right then, in my bed. There was no way I was going back to sleep.
We did a few pictures that Friday and then took her on a car ride on Saturday. And now we have a photo series that is going viral all over Facebook and I hope you will have a good laugh, too.
