Danielle is a Meteorology major at the University of South Alabama! So I bet you’re thinking – then why are you in NYC? Well, do you remember Rob & Rachel’s Central Park engagement shoot from November? Danielle is Rachel’s little sister! The whole family was in town for Rachel’s wedding dress shopping! (She DID say yes to the dress!) So ANYWAYS – Danielle’s mom had contacted me about setting up a shoot while they were in town. Timing was perfect and the weather wasn’t bad at ALL! I have never seen Christmas in New York so mild. It definitely made it easier to walk around! I met up with Danielle and her mom in West Village. My sister used to live in that area and I knew it would be the perfect spot for what Danielle was looking for! I wanted to avoid the CRAZINESS of the touristy areas and knew we could still pull of the vibe of NYC. With a little help from the @westvillagelife Instagram account, I found some AWESOME spots that I knew I wanted to take Danielle to… then of course kept stopping along the way at those “OOOOHHH look at that!” places. I had such a blast taking these senior portraits in NYC! Can’t wait to go back!
