Back home in Sacramento for a few weeks before I head to Paris for a semester abroad. Excited to finally have time to shoot for fun after such a busy, eventful semester.

My view of Hurricane Sandy in NYC yesterday evening.
So grateful that my friends and family are all safe, even if many of us may be without power/running water/transportation...
My college, NYU, is closed until at least this Saturday and my dorm is being evacuated tomorrow evening because of the blackout. I will be heading to Boston (for the first time) with a friend tomorrow!
Excited for a mini vacation but still very sad about all the after effects of the Hurricane!
Sending positive vibes to all those affected....

Back in late August I was commissioned by British luxury eyewear brand Cutler and Gross to shoot portraits of Kyle DeWoody, co-founder and creative director of Grey Area, an incredible art & design space in Soho. The portraits were featured in Cutler and Gross' bi-annual magazine in collaboration with CultureShock Media.
You can check out the magazine here, my photographs are featured on pages 28-33!

Fall is in full swing, the leaves are turning, my birthday has past. I haven't had much free time due to my classes, internship, and various jobs but here is a little taste of the sights I've seen over the last two months since I've been back in New York City.

I'm starting to get super nostalgic about NYC as I'm now at the midpoint of my semester. In January I head to Paris...a totally different adventure.

Last week, a few friends and I attended Rookie Mag's Prom at the Ace Hotel in honor of their one year anniversary and the release of their first yearbook. Some of the pics are featured on the blog for a wonderful and new quarterly zine The Fly By Night!
The decor was fittingly sparkly and frilly, excessive in the best way possible.
We danced for hours to a perfect mix of girly tunes including picks like "Cherry Bomb, "Dancing On My Own", "Hit Me Baby One More Time" and "Smells like Teen Spirit".
Among the incredible Rookie staff were guests such as Alexa Chung, Dev Hynes (of Blood Orange), and Florence Welch (!!!).
Avi met her idol/college essay inspiration, Ira Glass (of NPR's All Things Considered/ Showtime's This American Life)
Tavi (Rookie Queen Bee) addressing her royal subjects.
Hazel reading her piece on guilty pleasures
Tavi talking to Vanessa
Here is Avi, Vanessa, Maddie, and I throwing up some Spice Girls-inspired peace signs with Tavi at the end of the evening.

At the end of the summer I visited Nick in Portland, Oregon.
Since it was my first visit to PDX, we made sure to visit almost all of the 'touristy attractions'.
The breathtaking landscape of Crown Point at the Columbia Gorge
Voodoo Doughnuts 2
Dinner with Nick and his mom Molly at the restaurant Departure at The Nines Hotel
Driving back to Nick's house in the 'couv, Washington.
I felt really good vibes from Portland and I hope I can visit again as soon possible. I'm so happy, too, that Nick is now living here in NYC as well!

The first time I went to Coney Island was last year with my good friend Colin, it was beginning of my first year of college and we had just rewatched Requiem for a Dream together. The film portrays Coney Island as a sort of wasteland, a place that once was. And last year when we visited on an overcast day, the area was deserted and remnisicient of that ominous scene painted in the film.
Over the school year, I went back twice more: on one beautiful, sunny day in September and once during an eery thunderstorm in November.
When some friends decided to go to Coney Island a few weeks back, it was strange to see the area in full swing. The clouds hung low and warned of rain, but crowds of people (families, especially) were swarming the park and beach, dressed in colorful threads and full of energy.
Anna was in town for the weekend because she's off to London for the Fall semester. Since I'm going to be in Paris in the Spring, it will be nearly a year until we'll get to see each other next.
It was great to reconnect, too, with Jessie and Metin as well as with wonderful new friends who just moved to the city, Rockie and Lissy.
