I had so much fun my first trip back to the city in 3434198 years. Surprisingly warmer than expected (I think I was the only one with a scarf on at some point) I got to see people hat I hadn't seen in years, including this happy lady. Jessica and her never-ending smile are from Atlanta but moved up to Jersey while her musician-husband Oliver moonlights as a grad student at Rutgers. Doctor of Musical Arts has the most amazing ring to it, don't you agree? As soon as I said I was coming to NYC she booked her session almost faster than I booked my flights. Those are the best clients :) Since I was staying in Harlem, they came up to meet me amongst the pretty brownstones and we had a fab early morning session and managed not to run into more than 5 people. Strange. I think we walked 3 blocks but it looks like we visited 30 different places. That's why #ilovenewyork and can't wait to come back. More lovely photos from my time in New York coming soon to the blog, but for now, have fun with Jessica and Oliver.
