Strolling in DUMBO

By Posted on 2 min read 347 views
Hello girls (and boys), I finally have a picture for my about page! I have been thinking about this and envisioning what I would like for quite a while now. And my visions came to life last Saturday when I met with the wonderfully talented photographer Catherine May Taylor and my “Ken” Jean Claude (shhh, looks left, looks right…he really likes boys). We headed to the Brooklyn neighborhood of DUMBO and had a productive and fun shoot. It was a beautiful day: sunny, not humid and the light was just perfect. I have to say I was not particularly looking forward to it as I do not like being in front of the camera, and I do not like posing. But I will let you in on a little secret, I did not hate it as much as I thought I would, and towards the end I even started to like it a bit. DUMBO is great neighborhood to shoot in because it is not super crowed like Manhattan, and the streets are bigger and more open then other Brooklyn neighborhoods. Although this shoot was for my about page I decided to share the rest of the photos from the shoot. They were just too beautiful not to share. And if you live in the NY tri-state area and need a photographer, Β definitely consider Catherine. I think these pictures are more then enough to see how brilliantly talented she is, but you can see more of her work on her site And I am super excited to work with her again.Β

    Oh so this is the shoot you had mentioned to me awhile ago. You look fabulous Alicia! I love the bunny ears and the dark tights with the light dress – fantastic contrast!

    Yes if we can both get our ducks in a row, we should try to hit up some shows/events together next NYFW.

    Just wanted to let everyone know what I am wearing. The bunny ears I got a MACY’S two years ago for a Halloween costume. But it got snowed two years in a row! So I put them to good use here. The jacket was one of the best purchases I have ever made. I got it at H&M it was from one of their more expensive lines, it was $70.00 and a &70.00 very well spent. It is well made and looks like I could l have got it from Banana Republic . I always get compliments on it! The dress is from a company called Mustard Seed they do not seem to have a website and only sell wholesale. I picked this up at Buffalo Excahnge. And the little booties I got at Payless of all places. They too look fairly expensive but of course are not.
