I'll be in New York next week for my cousin's wedding on Long Island.

I have one day to spend in the city.

What should I do?

Where should I eat?

What must I see?

The ladies from The Willows Home and Garden always seem to have a smashing time when they visit the city and Joanna Goddard has an excellent guide, but there are so many options through their posts! What would you do if you only have one day?

Isn't it funny how things move along in life?  I purchased my first DSLR camera when I became a doula. I thought it would be a really fun addition to my doula services; to be able to take some decent photographs of the birth experience and of the happy family post-birth. Although my interests (no longer taking doula clients) and location (moved from AZ back home to CA) changed, the love of taking pictures has stayed with me. A few workshops and camera upgrades later, I am still snapping away on the weekends. Although I don't think it's something I'll ever do full time, I love being able to document people's important moments.

And speaking of progression..... I think that this bump is progressing quite nicely. What fun to be able to take photos of one of my dearest friends and her husband as they celebrate the upcoming arrival of their son. Weston will be joining us this spring. I cannot wait to meet him (and to photograph him, of course!).

Photos were taken at Crescent Bay in Laguna Beach, areas around Laguna Beach and at N&G's home in Long Beach.
