My First NY Session: Manhattan Family Photographer

I did my first New York session this morning.  I have to say I was a bit nervous.  I’m not even sure why!  This mom and her 2 children are in the playgroup that I started here.  I clicked with them immediately after meeting them.  I love when that happens!  I feel like I’ve known them for so much longer!  I had a great time with them this morning.  I did learn that doing sessions here in the city is much more different than in Austin.  There are lots of people everywhere and you’re always in their way.  lol  Oh well, I guess that is something that I will have to get used to.  Maybe I should start wearing a bright orange vest when doing sessions so that people don’t plow right over me.  😉  Thank you guys for hanging out with me this morning! I hope that the little guy gets to feeling better!

This was after we were all packed up and were getting ready to leave.  I love this one of dad and his little buddy just hangin out.  🙂

Central Park

This morning we took Mya to Central Park just to walk around.  We love it there.  It’s just so peaceful and beautiful!  Mya had so much fun, a little too much fun!  She was ready for her nap about an hour early while we were still there having a picnic.  Glad she was able to make it back to the apartment without too much of a meltdown! Please excuse her sweaty hair!  The girl is a sweat machine!   Tomorrow I have a session with a family that I’m very excited about!  So there will be a break from all of the Mya pictures!  😉

Got My Fix

So not having anyone booked for sessions in June is killing me!  I am in love with photography and when I’m not working, I just feel like a drug addict without my drug!  😉  I also love looking at other photographer’s sites.  Yesterday during Mya’s nap, that’s what I did, caught up on my favorite photographer’s sites.  Of course looking at their work just made me even more miserable to not be working so when Mya got up I took her down the street and took some pictures of her.  Ahhh, much better.  😉

Sometimes a Hat is All You Need!

Today we went to the BBQ Festival.  It was just like being in Austin but greener!  We went because one of our favorite singer/songwriters from Austin was going to be there, Carolyn Wonderland.  Turns out, they had a stage called “Meat Austin Music” where there were lots of Austinite bands.  We were thrilled!  We had so much fun!!  I’m so glad that we went.  It did take a little bit of work to get there on time.  We had to get Mya up earlier than usual this morning, take her to a park to run, run, run to wear her out all so that we could lay her down early for her nap so that we could get her up earlier than usual.  It worked!  We got to the festival just as Carolyn was starting.  After checking out the music for a while we went to find the BBQ.  I was on a mission to find the N.C. stand.  We finally found it.  It was the last one and it was closed!  No!  I wanted my N.C. style of BBQ.  TX BBQ is good, so good, but just different.  We finally found a stand that had something that looked similar to what I was used to and it was divine!!  After we ate, my hat became the center of entertainment for about 1/2 an hour.  😉  Love it when Mya can be that easily entertained!  We can’t wait to go back to the festival again next year.  Could this city get any better, really?
