In March, Dustyn, my mom, and I made a trip to New York City. My mom had never been and we wanted to explore with her. We saw a Broadway show or two, walked until our feet throbbed, and saw the sights of New York in between eating delicious food. One of the things I was most looking forward to was meeting up with my friend Estelle. I met her at Carly and David’s wedding last year, and we’ve kept in touch ever since. In fact, we started a side project because we both love to read so much and connected over books. (Check out our book review blog, Rather Be Reading.)
When I booked our tickets to New York, Estelle asked me if I would be up for photographing an anniversary session for she and James. Of course I said yes! We had all booked tickets to see Once (the musical) together, so we met up beforehand to take pictures. We met near Bryant Park, but navigated through the streets to find pretty buildings or great light.
Estelle is a dear friend of mine. Getting to know her over the last year has been incredible. She’s my constant companion while I’m working through each day, always keeping me company on google chat. It was so awesome to meet her other half, James, and to laugh along with whatever silly thing popped out of one of our mouths. I wish I had more time with them. Maybe one day they’ll move to Austin. A girl can hope.
We wanted a new bio picture for Rather Be Reading, so we had Dustyn to take a picture of us together. While I was adjusting my settings for him, I snuck in a few sneaky pictures of Estelle. :)
