Sun & Shadow

Happy Monday, hope you all had a great weekend! I always try to see Mondays in a positive way, as a fresh start to get as much accomplished as possible during the week. Every Monday morning I write down a list of big and small goals & tasks to work on each day. I've done this for years now and I find having it all written down somewhere really helps structure my week and focus my mind. I was at the Dublin Tech Summit last week and as you can imagine, there was so much information to take in that it was a little intense at times, but an incredibly interesting and educational couple of days! I got to see Gary Vaynerchuk give a really motivating (and bluntly honest as always) keynote talk which was a highlight for me as I've been following his career for awhile now and watch his vlogs every day. I definitely took a lot of tips and different ways of thinking away from the summit that I'll be applying to my own work.

Today I'm sharing one of my favourite outfit posts so far, shot on such a beautiful day in NYC last month! Looking back on all my photos from New York fills me with such happiness, I still can't believe I got to work with such amazing creative people and do what I love in my all time favourite city. It felt a little surreal at the time, standing in the middle of the road at a red light in front of numerous yellow taxis, taking photos with an insane view of NYC streets as the backdrop. These photographs are sort of becoming a reminder to me that anything is possible if you work hard and take a chance by reaching out to other people! It's definitely so daunting at the time sending an email or contacting someone you don't know but this year I've stopped dwelling on that point as much and just decided to go for it, you never know what could happen if you don't at least try after all! I've pretty much decided that a trip back over in the summer needs to happen.... 

 Have a great week!

Polka Dots & Pink

 Happy Saturday!
 I'm sharing another outfit post from NYC today, shot on an incredibly sunny day in the city! Now that I've been home for a couple weeks I'm already back in New York daydream mode, trying to plan when I can get back over again this year (ASAP, basically). I've been in a pretty bad creative slump this week which is so frustrating, but I find that sometimes trying to push it when you already feel like this is even worse! My weekend plans are to chill out and try recharge myself for a hopefully busy & creative week ahead. I'm going to start working on a short NY travel video so that I stay sort of productive this weekend, should hopefully have that up soon! I'm heading to the Dublin Tech Summit next week which I'm super excited about, that should help on the inspiration side of things at least. 
Wishing you all a great weekend!

Madison Ave

I'm only back from New York a couple of days and already I'm missing the city so much! I don't know exactly what it is about New York, but it's my favourite place to be and somewhere that feels like pretty much anything is possible. The atmosphere in the city is so electric and fast-paced that I'm constantly inspired there! I was so lucky to get to work with a lot of talented photographers while in the city and I can't wait to share the photographs. I'm sharing one of my first outfit shoots of the trip today, shot on 72nd St & Madison Avenue in the Upper East Side. Hope you like it!

We got so lucky with the weather on this day. The previous day was an absolute wash out so to see sun that morning was amazing, felt like such a perfect spring day! One of my goals this year was to shoot for the blog in New York and achieving that was just as surreal and exciting as I had imagined.
