So this week in New Orleans was one I will never ever forget! I had the greatest time exploring the city with most of my friends and family. For those who weren’t there, you were missed very much! Of course the best part was Alabama defeating LSU and winning the BCS National Championship. I never thought my little brother, Brad, would win two National Championships…I am blown away and so so proud of him and his team!

Most of my family celebrating after the win!
Here are a few of the pictures from the week. We basically did everything that was posted in my Nola blog post and like I said, it is a no fail fun guide. And New Orleans without a doubt has some of the best food in the world so I was in heaven!
In other news, Miller and I have been so craaazy busy with shooting that this past month has been a whirlwind. Miller had to miss the game for a photo shoot in New York and then flew straight to New Orleans to meet me for a shoot there this past Thursday. Then we headed to Mobile for another shoot and then one more in Alabama on Monday. I have not been in NYC for the past 30 days and I miss it SOOOO much. We go back on Wednesday, and I can not wait…get chills thinking about it!
Here are a few recent photos Miller has taken…this one was for Italy’s Economy magazine, and there are some other really great ones from this shoot that I can’t post because they are on our computer in New York. We were sent to photograph the three guys running the show at New York’s Eataly, and the main reason it was such an amazing shoot because we now have three new friends- these guys are AWESOME. One is missing from this photo, but I will post more later. If you haven’t been to Eataly, you must go check it out. It is a food lover’s heaven and you will get the best customer service- and that’s something I saw even before I knew these guys. Anyways, go check this place out!
This is a shot of a magician, Marco Tempest, for Wired UK. Behind the scenes for this shoot was crazy- wish I had pictures! I was throwing bread and fries to the birds for an hour, and people were walking down the Coney Island boardwalk looking at us like we were crazy.
This is a shot of a friend of our’s from Tuscaloosa, Bony Barrineau. I LOVE this portrait!
There’s so much other exciting work from Miller coming out soon that I can’t wait to show you. The other most exciting thing going on in our lives is that my best friend, Olivia, is moving to New York City in two weeks!!! I can not even begin to explain my happiness!!! Olivia, can’t wait to throw you a welcome to NYC party…Sam, we need to get on that!

So back to New York on Wednesday and we only have 5 days to soak it up! After that we leave for a 2 week shoot in Nashville, Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando, and Naples. Even though things are crazy right now, we feel so blessed to be getting this much work.
That was way to much info to cram into one post…Holla!!!
