Forest& Bluff’s 10 Best Covers
Forest & Bluff’s 10 Best Covers
November 2003 Ellie Davis, great grand-daughter of Catherine Eardly Davis of Lake Forest Photography by Brian Briggs. Ellie’s hair set the tone for this fall-themed photo. The pumpkins, hay, and Ellie’s little sweater were picture perfect.
October 2004 Katie and Jack Gilcrest of Lake Forest Photography by Brian Briggs The expressions of Katie and Jack—as well as those on the pumpkins—steal the show in this Halloween photo.
October 2006 Olivia Passalino of Lake Forest Photography by Brian Briggs You didn’t need to attend this photo shoot to feel the passion Olivia has for ballet. The artistry in the pointe of her shoe as she ties her laces can’t be missed.
April 2008 Beth Ann Fennelly of Lake Forest Photography by Jon Cancelino To celebrate poetry month, we were lucky enough to photograph the highly acclaimed poet Beth Ann Fennelly at Ragdale. There’s something about the combination of her red hair, the flowers in the greenhouse, and the snow in the background that make this photo a favorite.
July 2008 John Looby III of Lake Forest Photography by Jon Cancelino We couldn’t resist asking John to sport this bowler cap as he stood next to his 1929 Ford Model A Towne Car—one of only 30 known to still exist. When the issue came out, John was often stopped and told how much he looked like his grandfather’s photo on the cover for Forest & Bluff.
December 2008 Quinn and Dylan DiTomasso of Lake Forest Photography by Jon Cancelino Did you spot Santa Claus in this photo? If you follow the darling eyes of Quinn and Dylan, you can see Santa and his sleigh flying high above the DiTomasso’s home.
January 2009 Brittany “McKey” Sullivan of Lake Forest Photography by Jon Cancelino Fresh off her win from America’s Next Top Model, Lake Forest’s McKey rocked spring’s hottest looks in a fashion shoot for Forest & Bluff.
March 2010 Captain James Lovell of Lake Forest Photography by Helen Berkun Captain Lovell shared the riveting stories of his time with NASA to mark the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 13 mission.
August 2010 Sherry Lea Holson of Lake Forest Photography by Helen Berkun Sherry Lea was the picture of summer as she opened her manicured gardens to us last August. While she typically gardens in a shorts and T-shirts, it was a treat to photograph her in some of her most treasured cocktail dresses and gowns.
March 2011 Brenda Dick of Lake Forest Photography by Jim Prisching Gorton began 2011 by naming Brenda as its new executive director. We couldn’t imagine a better face for our March issue.
