Loft 329 was made for artists like ourselves to have a dedicated space for work and content creation. We want our space to be an inclusive environment, dedicated to pushing creative workers to grow as artists while feeling right at home.

Beyond the workspace, the versatility of a shooting studio and beauty station allows us to consistently be inspired as well. If you're interested in renting our space, drop us a line through our contact tab!




Carrie here!  I am a Chicago native.  I love to travel and have been to England, Italy, Mexico, Spain, Puerto Rico and France, along with visiting 33 of our United States so far.  I plan to see all 50! 


In 2003 I started my on-location beauty business, Appease Inc., while working as a business analyst full time in the corporate world.  In 2010 I finally left corporate culture to concentrate on my own business and to have more time for my family. 


I love doing hair and makeup for brides!  It’s so heart warming to be a part of that special day and helping make them feel confident and beautiful.

Hi! I’m Brenda. I am a maternity, newborn, child and family photographer living in the northern burbs of Chicago.


I am a mother to two, a yoga, coffee, beach, traveling and wine aficionado. I was born and raised in Lima, Peru and have spent the last two decades between Miami and Chicago. Talk about drastic changes, lol! I left the advertising world in 2016 to follow my passion for photography and never looked back. I can honestly say that I LOVE my job. I don't hate Mondays anymore, if you know what I mean...


Being able to take beautiful pictures of growing bellies and all the special moments in my Client's lives thereafter makes me incredibly happy.

I invite you to check out my work at and Instagram page @brendarobles

Hi! I'm Male! Dream chaser, music lover, mom of 2 beautiful children who enjoys helping women feel confident with makeup.

Since I was a child, I always wanted to be an artist!  In 1993 I began to explore opportunities in the performing arts and the beauty industry, leading me to become a professional Makeup Artist. 


I've trained with renowned artists, such as Mario Dedivanovic, Samer Khouzami, Jordan Liberty, and Beatriz Cisneros, among others.  I have  worked from Chicago to New York Fashion Week as well as internationally, exploring different styles of makeup and fulfilling my dreams of spreading my love for this craft to the world.
