It's really rare that I do any traveling without my family at all these days but I had to make it out to Mexico in celebration of my very good friend's bachelor party. It definitely took some adjusting to as the trip was completely outside of my normal every day schedule but none the less I a great time of fun and craziness. I got sick only a few days after I arrived back home (another indication on how tired I was after the trip lol) and i'm still doing my best to fully recover from the trip. We are going to be traveling as a family in CA in May to attend Stephanie & Jesse's wedding in beautiful Malibu and I can't wait to share more pictures from our adventures in CA but for now here are a few from my latest trip. 


This was our first real family vacation and it was truly an amazing time we had and i'm sure we will remember it for years to come. It was Chloe's first time flying and although it was definitely tough at times she did rather well. Olivia is technically traveling with us but just in the perfect safety of Sarah's belly so she was a perfect angel the entire trip =). I wish we had more time to travel like this but with Olivia coming in only a few months i'm sure we will have our hands full for at least until this time next year. 

Andaz 5th Ave | New York, NY

I’m so blessed to have some of the best clients in the business. I love traveling for shoots and it helps me get to know that client better since we get to spend a few days together rather then just the few hours we get together during the shoot. I’m here preping for Amy + Scott’s session tomorrow but they really went beyond my expectations to make sure I was taken care of during my stay in NYC.

The Andaz 5th Ave is my home for the next 2 nights and to this date haven’t stayed at a hotel as modern and sophisticated with the service and hospitality to match. I felt comfortable and taken care of from the very second I set foot in the hotel. Their seamless and casual check-in was refreshing and I was surprise to come back from scouting Brooklyn and other areas of NYC and see an elegantly plated snack tray and a bottle of wine for the evening. I don’t drink but the gesture was very much appreciated. Don’t worry I had plenty to drink since everything that was in the fridge that was not an alcoholic beverage was complimentary, seriously how awesome is that.

Thank you Amy + Scott for all the thought and preparation you put in on my behalf! I can’t wait for our session tomorrow!
