Tomorrow marks my 2 year anniversary of life in Boston. I can safely say that this place feels like home now. The vibe of the city is a perfect compliment to where James and I are personally at in life. The positives far outweigh the negatives, but it is even within those faults that i sense my love for this new home. I still love the changing seasons, even after 2 brutal winters. I welcome/prefer the walking and public transit, though I’m proud of how well I can maneuver the city by car (which involves a healthy balance of fist shaking, eye-rolling, and actual driving), and don’t mind my time on the 95 (which is just 95 here, can’t shake my Cali verbiage). The most difficult hurdle is the 3,000 miles between me and so many people I love. Donations of flier miles or private jets are always appreciated.
Yes, I can officially say that Boston has joined my group of favorite cities in the country, thus forming the holy trinity of locals that have stolen my heart. I’ve left my heart in San Francisco, strayed right through the very heart of NYC, and am so thankful I’ve shipped up to Boston (whoa). Yes, I just tossed Dropkick Murphys in with Bennett & Sinatra. We apparently lack the crooner love ov-ah he-yah.
All of that said, I’m excited to share that this fall I will have the opportunity to spend time in all 3 wonderful cities, as well as a few more stops throughout my beautiful home state of California! I am thrilled to get a bit of time to wander the cities alone and engage in my favorite pastime: capturing the dramatic collision of people and architecture … preferably ninja-style. However, I would love to connect with those who have requested portraits the next time I came to town! My (rough) itinerary is listed below.
Empire State of Mind
Also, in celebration that ALL couples can now marry in NY, I am running an “It’s About Damn Time” promotion. Any NY couples to book an engagement/family session, or a wedding package, will receive 20% off of the final fee. Booking needs to occur by the end of 2011, session/wedding needs to take place between Fall 2011 and December 31, 2012. Connect with me below for more information!
November 19-21: San Francisco
Nov 22: Oakhurst
Nov 23-24: Bakersfield
Nov 25-Dec 1: Orange County
Hopefully someday soon I can run the same promotion in CA. Come on sunshine state, get on the ball.
If you would like to meet up in any of these locations for a session, a cup of tea, and a chance to catch up, you can connect with me by scrolling to the bottom of this post and clicking on those hand dandy buttons. I look forward to it! For now, I’m off to daydream about the things I love about these cities besides the art & the people: Brunch & Tea at Alice’s Tea Cup, Gilroy Garlic Fries (if I can’t make it to Giants Stadium, I WILL track them down), and chai latte’s from Alta. Oh sweet calories, be mine.
