New York Portraits

New York Photo Shoot

Denim

"In the right denim a girl can conquer the world"

We took off our masks just long enough to shoot our New York Portraits in denim and if you look closely you’ll see us holding them in a couple of the shots.

We hadn’t been to New York since March so we were excited but nervous for our first day back shooting in the city. Images of New York fighting a pandemic have been on everyone’s mind and we wanted to wait until it was both safe and appropriate to be there. The tourist sights were reopening, the restaurants were welcoming outdoor diners and New Yorkers were getting back to normal life where they could.

It was time.

Sam, Belle, Olivia and I drove into Chelsea and started our day there, wandering the streets and surprised by how quiet everything was. This is one of my favorite areas of the city but it was strange and a little surreal. The area downtown was even quieter, the 911 museum and memorial were closed and the Oculus Transportation Terminal was missing the commuters and tourists that usually gather there. We took advantage of the open views and the girls brought some smiles and laughter to the almost empty streets.

I have been back to New York since this shoot and the streets are already more vibrant and much busier again. New York will be back – just wait and see!

Junior Tribe Studio Photoshoot

Studio Photoshoot

Sweet as Sugar

The last Planet Photo Junior Tribe studio photoshoot had a sweet as sugar candy theme. Ring pops make you feel sticky before you even open the packet so you can imagine how we felt by the end of our shoot. I tried my hardest not to touch anything until the very end but now I have added sprinkles to the glitter that lives in my studio and turns up at odd times no matter how much I sweep!

I loved how the girls styled their outfits and got into the theme – I can’t even believe how much they have grown in front of the camera over the course of the summer. This was the perfect theme to end the season – all the girls in the Junior Tribe really have been so sweet. 

Thank you to Kate, Caitlyn and Jordana for making this particular studio photoshoot so much fun and good luck in school this year!

I’m just here for the candy! 

What do you get when you go to a movie? Popcorn or candy? Or both?

Milk Duds are my favorite!

How about donuts? Glazed, jelly or frosted?

I have to admit donuts aren’t my favorite but I’ll take a peach and ginger muffin from River and Rail Cafe with my latte please!
