how i take my photos when i'm on vacation

being a photographer, my standards for my own personal photos are slightly higher than the average blogger’s...some may call it pickier but let’s just say thankfully when i’m home in nyc, i shoot with lydia hudgens for all of my content…and thankfully she knows how to deal with all of my crap by now (throwback to my first shoot with her back in 2015)! and while i would love to pack lydia in my suitcase for all of my travels or clone myself to take my photos, i can’t (yet). therefore i’ve had to come up with tips and tricks so i can have my friends and family (and the occasional kind stranger) help me out.

dress: rhode resort (with the belt from this color)
bag: roksanda (also love the white)
shoes: j.crew (old)
hat: club monaco (old)
bracelets: cartier
sunglasses: dolce & gabbana

come sail away

if you have been following along on my instastories, it has been quite the adventurous few weeks for me. i began my roughly two week long trip with a family wedding in puerto vallarta, mexico. but while i may have absolutely loved the outfit that i was going to wear to the ceremony, i knew i wanted to be sure to exclude any blogging or photography (aside from iphone photos of course) during those days with my family. mostly because my parents may be used to my blogging ridiculousness, but my extended family definitely isn't...and i didn't think this was the opportunity to expose them to that side of me haha! but about a month ago, i saw this beyond incredible dress on karen of where did u get that and needed it immediately knowing it would be perfect for this beachside wedding. knowing i wasn't going to be shooting this in mexico, i decided to get a jump start and use this dress as an excuse to do my favorite springtime activity: rowing boats in central park! and i'm especially thankful to lydia because just days earlier she witnessed someone fall in the lake trying to take a photo...needless to say she was scarred and i offered that we used my equipment this day!

dress: self portrait (also love this version here)
shoes: valentino
earrings: tory burch
bracelets: cartier
sunglasses: dolce and gabbana

flippin' good vacation

with spring not wanting to make up its mind on whether to stay or to go, i escaped the cold by heading down to naples, florida with my family over the easter holiday! while i tried to keep this holiday weekend a real vacation (aka no blogging), the flowers had bloomed just in time for my arrival and they coincidentally matched my new dress so obviously i had to take my camera out juuuust once!

mykonos // going places

our time in greece was quickly coming to an end and we couldn't believe we were on our last full day! not only did we not spend enough time in mykonos, i felt like i wanted to explore even more of the islands...i was just getting started!! but we came to terms with our the end of the trip and checked off the last few things on our to-do list! one of those things was riding an atv. i'm cool are they! i definitely didn't feel cool enough driving one but andrea and i rocked our newest accessory with ease: and by ease, i mean practicing for roughly 5 hours before really being comfortable. this seemed to be the mode of transportation everyone resorted to and we obviously needed to do so to blend in.
