Vlog: 5 Days in New York

My 5 days in New York vlog is finally here! Better late than never, right? I asked the video master of the family to fine tune it, so Kirill added in a bunch of cool effects 🙂 I won’t make excuses about being late with this. It was summer; I wanted to be outside rather than sit on the computer when I could. But to me …

How To Spend A Day In Portland

Portland! The city of roses, trees, and hipsters. Kirill and I went last month for our anniversary (after a quick stop at Cannon Beach). It’s got an interesting vibe and it’s cute.

New York is a really photogenic city and this was a memorable trip. I also took a break from shooting when I came home. My sister and niece were in town for …

On Ludlow St: The Strokes Tee & Striped Shorts

This post may contain some cheesiness. You probably can’t tell why. You’re probably just seeing a girl walking around New York, but there’s more to to it. There’s a song I like called Ludlow St by Julian Casablancas (the lead singer of the Strokes). I wanted to visit it, like a Beatles fan would want to visit the Abbey Road crosswalk. I was very pleasantly …

Red Suede Dress in Central Park

What’s the first thing you do when you go to a new city? In New York, I put my little red suede dress on and headed to Central Park. I wanted to spend the first day getting all the super touristy things out of the way because: a. They’re conveniently located close to each other b. We’d be able to spend more time exploring the …
