I started 2011 by moving to Melbourne, Australia for 3 months. Although my expectations were already very high, nothing I could’ve ever imagined compared to the first few months of this passing year. Never before have I witnessed so much genuine beauty, open mindedness and free love. Melbourne truly has me and in the years to come I plan on moving back indefinitely.
My dear friend Julian (the middle in the above photo) gave me my 3rd tattoo - an ode to my sister.
After Melbourne I went to Toronto for a couple of months to spend time with my family, this and the below photos were taken in a shop in Kensington market that I ended up spending a lot of time in…
…A beautiful place with beautiful people.
From Toronto back to New York in time for summer :)
Lizz by the lake of our “Hurricane Irene” weekend getaway cabin in Luray, Virginia…
…Between school and work my girls and I made time for FUN :)
Spent almost all my summer on my balcony with babes, the one thing I miss most about my last apartment.
This is a photo I’ve been meaning to take for years now, a simple one but hadn’t gotten to it until this year.
I gave Mo a copy of the photo :)
Yumna in a corn field in Virginia
Thomas in upstate NY, we had so many beautiful roadtrips this year :)
I spent a lot of time being creative with this guy, it was a great summer.
Thomas, climbing things :)
Got back to school and this beautiful man was like a mentor to me during summer semester. We played with a lot of expensive equipment, including the Hasselblad that this photo was taken on.
…This as well was taken with Andres mentoring me, on the digital Hasselblad with Eaddy and Jean as my models.
The beautiful Lizz had her jewelry displayed in a fashion show during NYC Fashion week, so proud of her!
I spy with my little eye :)
I got and lost the coolest lighter ever, a bullet. At least I got to capture snooty pants with it first :)
Traveled with a great friend, Savannah, to Port Antonio, Jamaica for a couple of weeks.
This is Savannah’s beautiful little brother, Che.
My two niniheads celebrating Sapier’s special birthday!
I was in a music video for my friends Das Racist Michael Jackson, MILLION DOLLAR$
I welcomed beautiful new friends into my life this year, thankfully so
I saw my favorite artist Kurt Vile live in concert at Webster Hall, it was magical.
I moved out of my moms house and into a beautiful loft in Bushwick with my best friend
We momentarily had a cat that was pretty cute, for the first week
Went to Miami for a few days with Thomas and Yumna for Art Basel weekend.
Goodbye 2011, you were “really really ridiculously good looking” to me :)
