India Princess Party and a Muffaletta Cake

This was a birthday party for an Indian princess turning 1 and a fundraiser for the March of Dimes. Everything about this event was over the top perfect. The custom made Indian decor meets Miami mansion is where this royal family resides. Italian chandeliers, the marble, art everywhere, the 3 story salt water fish tank, it was sensory overload for the elite and I can't wait for the baby's 2nd birthday!

PS - The last image is of a muffaletta groom's cake. The wedding was poorly planned but the cake was YUMMY!!!

My Nola Boyz

You would never guess its December in New Orleans, just yesterday I was wearing a tank top and skinny jeans!! Got to <3 the South for not catching on to the cold weather like the North. The first set of images are of my boy Miguel from Club 930. He's real fun to shoot. The last images are of my college buddy Paul. Even though he's sporting a Boston hat, I get over our sport differences because, well, its the American way. GOOOOO YANKEES!!! BOSTON SUCKS!!! I can't help but revert to an immature teenage boy when it comes to Boston teams - seriously they do suck.

Bubbles From The Old Ursuline Convent

Built in 1752 this New Orleans landmark is the oldest surviving examples of the French colonial period. On Thursday, the historic Ursuline Convent was the location to a champagne event called Bubbles, Bubbles, Bubbles (Yes, I know). This champagne tasting had my fingers on the point and shoot button because I fell in love.

Hand written notes from Thomas Jefferson! The statue of touchdown Hail Mary! Life size saint statues! The herb garden! The French Quarter backdrop! The art! The moustache door hinges! The Spanish architecture! As far as the event went - well, Nola you have the venue, your missing the eye candy. Too many boys in oversized pleated khaki pants, ladies in frump-a-lump paisley fo-silk shirts and not enough styled-out party goers I'm comfortable with. However, I didn't care about the people, I was all about the place!

Dementia Dish

This was giving to me by an elderly lady with dementia who lives in the building where I am temping. Her New Orleans old money wealth bears treats when she walks out of her downtown apartment. She's always draped in her golden jewels and accompanied by her gentle giant rottweiler. I like when she pops out of her apartment because I know something old folks bizarre will happen and that makes my day go by faster.

Everyday is Halloween

People down in New Orleans really don't need Halloween as an excuse to dress up in costume. While most of these images are from Halloween a few are from a random Saturday night out. Every night is Halloween in my mind and I appreciate taking pictures of a good costume. In case your wondering, (and I know you are) what I was for Halloween this year, I dressed up as sexy Frida Kahlo. Yes, unibrow power was in full bushy force that night!! <3>
