Living That Lakeview Life | M2 Boutique

This is Lakeview ~ Let’s Shop!

I’m very excited to share the second installment in my new Living That Lakeview Life collaboration with Lifestyle Blogger, Lynzie Wellin!

This month’s featured Lakeview business is M2 Boutique – my favorite place to shop for gifts and fun accessories.

Lynzie and I spent some time in M2 finding our favorite things to share with you – it was hard to whittle it down, there’s so many fabulous things!

Owner Mel Nelson has been in the neighborhood for over 10 years, and I’m also lucky enough to work with her as a vendor…she carries pins from Big League Pins! It’s really great working with business owners on so many levels. It makes living in the city a truly small neighborhood experience.

Happy Shopping!

Living that Lakeview Life by Angela Garbot Photography

This is Lakeview!

I am so excited to announce the launch of Living that Lakeview Life – my collaboration with one of my favorite Hair/make-up artists and Lifestyle Blogger, Lynzie Wellin of Lyfe Style Win! We are both entrepreneurs and small business owners in the Lakeview community of Chicago, and we wanted a way to show off our favorite fellow business owners, so…here we are! Each month we’ll get together at a new place and share their awesomeness with you.

For me personally, I’ve been in and around the Lakeview area for over 20 years. I live in the neighborhood and am very active in the area, currently serving my second term on the Lakeview Chamber Board of Directors. So, it’s definitely near and dear to my heart!

Caitlin + Matt’s Charlotte Wedding Photos

“The Queen City Meets the Big Easy”

When I was in Charlotte for Caitlin + Matt’s engagement session, it was mid-July, sunny and VERY hot. Three months later, it was a whole different experience…unseasonably cold and rainy outside. But inside the Charlotte Country Club, it was warm and cozy as they prepared to become man and wife.

Every person I encountered had a huge grin plastered on their face, everyone was so happy and excited…it was contagious! And, the rain didn’t bother anyone, least of all the bride and groom.

It was also a unique day for me, as I had the honor of photographing Caitlin’s sister Whitney’s engagement and wedding a few years ago. Everyone treated me like I was family, and our shared experience made for an even more relaxed, fun day.

Here’s to #happilyeverhelgeson – congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Helgeson! (and, if you want to see even more of their wedding photos, check them out here)

GarbotGoes: Charlotte, North Carolina

“Best Thing I Ever Ate…”

Oh what fun I had traveling to Charlotte, NC for a pre-wedding/engagement session! Because, the journey is just as important as the destination.

More yumminess to come!
