I moved to NYC one year ago on Saturday. It was a big move-- big change, big uncertainties. Overall the move has been successful-- I've been able to live in a great city with amazing opportunities, and to take advantage of many of those opportunities. I celebrated the one year anniversary of my big move to NYC in Times Square because the Disney Billboard is now displaying two of my photos!!!!!! Sigma has created a video spot (you can see the link on Vimeo at the bottom) which featured not only two of my favorite photos, but also included my name! It was awesome to see my work with my name on a 1300sq ft + video billboard in Times Square! The video is only up for a week (and cycles through with other videos), but nonetheless was a good way to mark 1 year!
So basically, this is a bragging post. 😛 Ok, not bragging but sharing my intense excitement! As I've said before, ideally you can tell in posts like these my enjoyment of life, pride in my work, and passion for what I do every day! I know I am lucky, and will work hard so my luck doesn't run out.
The two photos were one of my boyfriend Joel (a portrait) and the other was one of my signature fashion photos (of red glasses, red lips, white skin), and you can see them in the shots below. My family is sooo loving and sooo supportive that my parents drove 3.5 hours from home just to see the photos in Times Square. I know they are awesome parents, and I'm luck to have their support.
