This fun shoot took place in Central Park during our NY trip earlier this month. What makes it so fun is that well one, we were in New York which is one of my favorite cities of all time and two, my husband took all of the pictures. Even though taking my blog pics isn’t at the top of his “most fun things to do” list I always love shooting with him because he cracks me up with jokes and his over exaggerated “I’m a photographer” moves. LOL. I love going through the pictures after we shoot because the majority of them are me just mouth wide open laughing hysterically! Thankfully we captured some blog worthy ones 🙂 Also, just a personal thought, isn’t it funny how much a picture tells you and at the same time how much it doesn’t? Looking through these specific ones I can totally see and remember what a great weekend it was. I think these photos show what a great time we were having and the happiness is totally captured. However, what it doesn’t show is that literally minutes before we started this shoot Brandon and I got into a little “argument”. Do you want to know what the argument was? It was because we had a bunch of things we wanted to do that day and he had written a list out and my photoshoot was like 5th on the list. I didn’t understand why he would want me to ruin my hair and have to retouch my makeup. I mean DUH, right? Well after explaining to him he totally understood. In his defense, he was like “I’m a guy. I don’t think of things like that. You look like that all the time”. Flawless? Okay, I forgive you LOL. Needless to say, we continued on with our amazing trip! 🙂

My husband is a NY Jets fan so that was the main reason we booked the trip. Again, taking advantage of the Southwest deals this past June! We both have been to New York several times, but never together so we made sure we did all the tourist things this time around; Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower, Times Square, Rockerfeller Center, Museums, Central Park etc. We also purchased the Big Bus pass for the entire 4 days and I’m so glad we did! We did the ride through Brooklyn, Harlem and the night ride through the city. The night ride also took us over the Manhattan Bridge which gave us the most amazing views. I would highly recommend the Big Bus experience! It may take you through parts you didn’t plan on going and gives you the opportunity to take amazing pics!

Thank you so much for stopping by!! Happy Monday and Happy Thanksgiving week!!
