Meet the Models: Rani

Imaginative, daring and creative, I had the pleasure of photographing Rani in my Pierogi Picnic creations at a recent photo shoot. Muse, co-founder and lead vocalist in the band Girl Detective, Rani is a whirlwind of creative energy! Started in 2011, her group combines the ambiance of eighties new wave with a romantic, almost Siouxsie Sioux melodic quality, that is both spell-binding and breath-taking. Girl Detective has become a perfect outlet for Rani’s interests in performance, writing, fashion, video, installation and, of course, singing!
Beyond her music, Rani also recently began painting in oils again, taking it up for the first time in many years. She loves to stand in front of her easel and push paint around to see something materialize. When I asked her to share two things most people may not know about her, Rani replied,”I am clairvoyant. I can leap tall buildings in a single bound.” A Halloween baby, Rani recently celebrated her birthday, and to no one’s surprise, counts pumpkins as one of her favorite produce items.
Visit Rani’s band’s website to hear and see all her gifts in action!

The time has arrived! The annual “Everyday Beauty” contest is here!!!

Each February we celebrate the average, mundane, simple pleasures of daily life by hosting a friendly photo face-off between Pierogi Picnic fans on Facebook.

This year’s theme asks you to take the subject of “Everyday Beauty” and combine it with “Love.”
