This year we were invited to a Halloween party in which there was a contest. When I was younger I used to be super competitive, I would say I’m not as competitive these days. I pick my battles. For some reason this contest struck me as something I needed to compete. Especially when I found out what my friend Heather was planning on being – the competition was fierce.
Here is a quick shot of our costumes that I made. I will hopefully have a few more to share soon.
While in Boston my husband and I were wandering around Boston’s North End. It’s cute little historical area. While hanging out at the Bell in Hand, which is apparently the oldest running tavern in the US, I noticed a clam bar across the street. Apparently, this clam bar is “America’s Oldest Restaurant”.
I’ve never had oysters before and decided that if I was going to do it, I might as well do it in a cool place like that.
Dressing my oysters with some hot sauce – secretly hoping I could drown it to mask the flavor.
Then I made my husband try them too. So he had two of them.
Verdict: Didn’t really like them. It was fun to try them but I didn’t really like the texture. You also get little pieces of shell that doesn’t taste very good.
A friend of mine just started a local bake shop. She’s not just the average bake shop, she specializes in healthy options in her baking. She substitutes fake and unhealthy materials for organic and real food. I forgot to ask her everything that was in the cupcakes but I know she used whole wheat flour. Plus they’re in such small portions you can really limit the calories you consume.
Yum Bake Shop also does yummy cookies too (and will ship them to you if you don’t live in Boise). Also, you can get a free samples.
I was super excited when one of my bride’s sisters contacted me about doing photos. I had mentioned we would be vacationing over in the Boston/NYC/NH area when she was here for the wedding. A few months later she emailed me asking if I’d be interested in shooting when I was there.
Of course. I always love the opportunity to shoot in new areas. I’m still organizing this session, but here is a quick peek.
After a 10 day east coast adventure, 3 hotels and 6 airports later – I am happy to be home. I have lots of vacation photos and photo sessions to share but in the meantime I’ll leave you with a photo of NYC at dusk.
For those of you waiting for updates on your photos, I am working fast to get them finished. I should hopefully be caught up this week.
