In the Shadows

Jacket | Sweater | Skirt | Bag | Bracelet | Boots Here’s a sneak peak of some (gratuitous) shots of me from one of the first fall days here in NYC. I’ve been wearing these rag and bone harrow boots to death lately – they’re surprisingly comfortable despite a 3.5 inch heel. I’m a new […]

Love how film gave the photos such a moody green tint. Analog Photography is always such a surprise. Nice shots!

Thanks Carrie!

Film cameras are so thrilling. You only get a certain amount of shots, so it’s more challenging for both model & photographer (in a good way). Love love love the bag strap. :] // itsCarmen.com ☼ ☯

not to mention you have to wait to see how all the images come out! i don’t know if i love or hate the suspense yet Carmen ha!

The Wayfarer

We sat down to a delicious seafood meal at the Wayfarer one friday night. The restaurant is in midtown just south of central park, and has a magnificent bar and quite a lot of seating. I imagine the place is filled with business lunches during the day, but on a friday evening was quite quiet […]

Conrad Koh Samui Hotel Review

Conrad Koh Samui Staying at the Conrad Koh Samui was like an incredible dream. A beautiful suite at the end of a hilly cul de sac, our own private infinity pool, and a view of the ocean – what more is there to paradise? Although it occasionally thunderstormed during our stay, nothing could dampen our […]

I’ve been wanting to go to Thailand so badly! This place looks beautiful!

JoyceOctober 17, 2014 - 1:36 pm

Love seeing the detailed photographs. How is this place real?! The daily fresh juice, infinity pools, and views–I don’t know how you got yourself to leave

JoannaOctober 17, 2014 - 2:50 pm

This resort looks so luxurious and relaxing, I don’t think I’d mind the isolation! One of my best friends is from Thailand and is always telling me how beautiful it is there.

Blue Hour

I took these photos in the early morning before sunrise on Koh Samui, hoping for some pretty sunrise shots. I’m usually not much of a morning person, but we woke up early to watch the US soccer game (it was world cup season at the time) and I was in the mood to stay up […]

Oh wow, I miss Koh Samui so much. It’s so under the radar, not a lot of people go there. Your photos are lovely!

EricaOctober 16, 2014 - 9:55 am

These are beautiful Sher! The light (or lack thereof) is gorgeous. Love this time of day.

Koh Samui Part I – Chaweng Beach

Chaweng, Koh Samui From northern Chiang Mai, we flew directly to Koh Samui island. The flight was short and pleasant – even though it was only about 2 hours, they still served us lunch! I thought that was a nice touch. We decided to split up our Koh Samui trip in two and spent a couple […]

Oh noo!! Nothing worse than the smell of durian – I really hate that fruit!

Ahh the Thai resort takes me back to my summer trip there…How is it Oct already!? And lol at your durian story. How did you get the smell out of the room?!

SherOctober 18, 2014 - 6:08 pm

Saskia – total lesson learned, never buy durian!!! haha

L’Artusi

I’m always down for some comforting Italian so I went with my family to L’artusi a couple weeks ago. The menu had so many things that looked good, that we ordered a number of small plates to share. My favorites were the mushrooms, octopus and beet raviolis! The dessert was delicious too – a mix of […]

The Met

“Meet you at the Temple of Dendur”. You’d think I was in a foreign country, but no, just the Met. As a child on school field trips, the Egyptian wing of the museum and the wide, open area called the Temple of Dendur was a huge favorite. It’s been years since those days but I […]

SiennaOctober 10, 2014 - 9:43 pm

The Egyptian wing is one of my favorite parts of The Met!

SherOctober 11, 2014 - 3:09 pm

Mine too!

JoyceOctober 14, 2014 - 10:19 am

I can’t imagine how it would’ve been like to go to the Met as a field trip when you were younger, and seeing how your perspective changes when you return years later. I like your attention to the angles & shadows of the place. Especially the third to last picture–the light seems to glow out of those domed windows :)

SherOctober 18, 2014 - 6:08 pm

yeah, I didn’t even know it WAS the met I went to as a kid until I rediscovered the Egyptian wing ha!

The Philip Johnson Glass House

I had a great time exploring New Canaan on a sunny weekend in July. All the greenery! It was such a nice change from the city that I went a little picture crazy. If you’re at all interested in architecture, head up to Connecticut for a tour of Philip Johnson’s summer home. I had no […]

I was planning on going last week too, but didn’t make it! Great minds think alike, I guess haha. I like that your photos show me parts that I didn’t see in other photos before.

KelvenSeptember 15, 2014 - 12:49 am

Pretty cool layout I suppose. No such thing as worrying about the lack of light in this house I bet hehe. Such lush surroundings too.

SherSeptember 17, 2014 - 6:19 pm

haha yes definitely lots of light with the trade off of little privacy. I liked it for an afternoon but probably not a permanent living situation for most.. :)

SergeSeptember 22, 2014 - 7:50 pm

Quite lovely actually. But… also a little lonely maybe?

Elsa KawaiOctober 7, 2014 - 8:38 pm

oooo boy… So beautifully captured.
