A weekend in New York

Horses. Dogs. Puppies. Children. Good friends. Late nights. New York. What’s not to love? That’s how I spent my weekend and to be honest, I’m still recovering! 

When my friend and fellow photographer invited me to join her to help photograph an event that’s near and dear to her heart, coupled with other dog sessions for us to shoot, I couldn’t turn down her offer. After all, I’ve been watching her get to know the horses and kids who participate at this event over the last several years, vowing to find something like it here in Central PA. It was a whirlwind 3 days, and while I was exhausted, I truly had so much fun, I just didn’t care. There’s nothing like spending time with like minded friends, talking shop, shooting, cuddling dogs and eating late night meals at the diner! 

I have hundreds of photos to sort through which will keep me plenty busy for a while now! But I just wanted to share this image, the last one I captured after we had wrapped up a day of shooting in Dumbo, an area of Brooklyn I had never visited, but intend to come back to in the near future! There’s nothing like New York. And for this Pennsylvania chick, while I get overwhelmed with the busyness of the city, there’s just something so energizing about it. I literally could spend a day (probably even weeks) just walking around photographing all the dogs I meet. Like this sweet girl we saw as we headed back to our cars. Pretty, isn’t she?
