November 8 - November 10

From Friday night to Saturday mid day, I edited pics, yes while watching The Office. If you can guess the episode you get a free shoot.


This was Saturday - I did Alexis’ nails using tips and dip powder I bought off of Amazon after obsessively watching tutorials on YouTube.

Then it was time to celebrate Bri’s birthday in Brooklyn - we started out in LES and made our way to a few different spots in Williamsburg. Pepperoni pizza was the highlight of my night.

Sunday, I had my first studio shoot with kids! It was one of the most exciting photoshoots I’ve done to date and I plan to start taking pictures of kids more often! It was in Christine’s small ass studio apartment but the pictures turned out perf!

Here’s some more random pictures that I don’t feel like explaining:

keep Scrolling for last weekend…

Thursday marked the weekend for me, even though I worked on Friday haha. I caught the Empire State Building hiding its tip at exactly 5:16pm and it looked the exact same as it does everyday.

My halloween costume: referee w/o a whistle. We pregamed with tequila and good music, then headed to Lot 45 where a long line was standing in the wind and occasional gust. So, we got tacos and caught Ubers home. No regrets.

Friday I ‘worked from home’ at Bri’s job in Brooklyn. Where she works was worth the commute even though they stopped serving lunch after I got there. Throughout the entire day, I was obsessed with how well I did on my nails. It was my first time doing my own nails, using tips, dip powder and gel! When Bri got off of work, we had a deep conversation on the steps of the Brooklyn Academy of Music. When we finally got up, we traveled to the West Village and waited in line for 20 to eat some of the best pizza in NYC, Scarr’s.

On Saturday, I got brunch and took a stroll through Harlem with a friend.

Sunday was pretty chill. I mostly worked in my new CRM and snapped this picture of the sunset.
