♥ Having another successful The Insta Edit Workshop! I have so much to share about social media and how to use Instagram for your brand so I'm glad so many people are interested in listening to Patsy and I talk about it! ♥ Making my way through at least half of New York Fashion Week. February in New York can be brutal and of course the days I was there consisted of a snow storm and freezing rain. ♥ Doing more branding photo shoots for female entrepreneurs. ♥ Listening to records and slowing down. ♥ Finishing books and starting new ones right away. Finally listening to the audiobook of Modern Romance by Aziz Ansari. ♥ Naturally waking up early. ♥ Finally being able to open my giant window and get some fresh air in my apartment without freezing my ass off. ♥

Hakan Akkaya // NYFW FW2017

A lot of the time, I don't know what I will see when I sit down for a show. When the Hakan Akkaya show started, I tried to not hyperventilate/ cry hysterically. It was everything I love. Reformed goth, athleisure, and all black everything. It was a perfect show. So glad I got to witness it from the first row!

NYFW Fall/Winter 2017

Last week started my ninth season of NYFW. I had the pleasure of attending a few shows before I got bronchitis (story of my life). Enjoy some of my favorite photos from most of the shows I went to. Some I didn’t feel like photographing and I just enjoyed the experience. Also be on the lookout next week for a post dedicated to my favorite show I went to!

+/- January 2017
 Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

For those who are new, +/- is my monthly series where I recap the previous month in Positives and Negatives.

+ I told myself that I would spend more time in New York this year and I am already on my second trip. I'm currently sitting in I Hate Blonde's office in her Soho apartment as I type this. My first trip was to photograph a fashion trade show at the Javits Center. It was long days but I met some cool people while I was here.

+ I did a few shoots with Rachel and a few of my photos got reposted by Nylon Magazine and Nakid Magazine! It's nice when publications recognize my work.

+ I had two talks at Johnson and Wales University about branding and social media marketing. It was great to have such a great reception from all the students. They really seemed interested in what advice I had to offer.

- The state of this country...

+ But on the other hand, it was great to see so many people at protests and taking action. It truly gives me hope.

+ I've been reading every day this month. It's such a good feeling finishing books. I really should sign up for an Audible account. 

+ Making plans for new content, both photography and written. I really want to have new work driven by me and not just hired work. ABS! Always be shooting!

+/- I've been feeling really down lately about everything happening around me so I am trying to do a regular gratitude practice over at the What I Love Wednesday tag.

Tell me how your January was in the comments!

Photo Story // New Hair, Who Dis?

Rose haired girl frolics around her Soho home. I love the photos that I Hate Blonde and I created on a wintry night in the early days of January 2017.
