Anniversary Ribbon Cutting Event at the Chicago Boudoir Photography Studio

Hello! I had the wonderful opportunity to celebrate my business anniversary with a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Winnetka Chamber of Commerce!

We started the celebration with a tour of the studio. The chamber president and other village dignitaries were in attendance. As it turns out, the ceremony ended up being an all-female event! I love some good women-in-business representation!

Next we went outside for a ribbon cutting ceremony. As promised, there were actual giant scissors on hand for the ribbon cutting! (And they were much sharper than I had anticipated!). We cut the ribbon to celebrate the first anniversary of my studio space here in the Hubbard Woods Design District. (I have been a professional photographer since 2011, but have worked in this particular studio space since June 1, 2018).

Here are some photos from the ribbon cutting ceremony at the Chicago Boudoir Photography studio:

After my studio ribbon cutting, we also held a similar ribbon cutting ceremony for Donna Vitaliano, who owns a hair salon next door to my photo studio!

It was a great day to celebrate the anniversary of Chicago Boudoir Photography operating in this beautiful studio location!

Here’s some info about the Winnetka Chamber of Commerce from their website:

The Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce was formed in 2011 after the merger of two active and vibrant chambers: the Winnetka Chamber of Commerce and the Northfield Chamber of Commerce.

“The mission of the Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce is to promote economic growth, development, and involvement in the local business and civic communities.”

The newly formed Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce is over 300 members strong and growing. The combined membership affords its members more services, a larger presence in the community and a stronger voice in the community.

Within each district – Hubbard Woods, West Elm, East Elm, Indian Hill and Northfield– there is pride and commitment to providing quality, value, expertise and personalized customer service. As Winnetka and Northfield’s leading business advocate, the Winnetka-Northfield Chamber of Commerce welcomes you.”
