So, this past Monday I traveled to NYC with my best friend, Rachel, to swap branding sessions with a fellow photographer. While I will have more on that soon, first I wanted to share with everyone this cute restaurant: Ella Kitchen & Bar @ 249 Columbus Ave, New York, NY 10023.
We were in the car for 4.5 hours. 2.5 in driving to get to the city, and 2 in looking for parking. Yes. 2 hours. To find parking. I was going out of my mind!! FINALLY we found something, and guess what...It was FREE! So we gathered our belongings and set out to find a restroom and lunch. We ended up with brunch. Rachel and I both ordered the Egg and Cheese Croissants. They were amazing, and even came with fries and a salad.
This establishment was soooo cozy! I sat on an elevated bench decorated with little pillows on the back wall. (I wish I took a photo of that too.) It has a Latin and Mediterranean atmosphere and menu, with vegan options to boot. The dining room wall was decorated with an array of mirrors in various shapes and sizes:
So, basically, if you are on the west side of Central Park and in need of some light, affordable fare, stop in! The waitstaff was courteous and prompt and the food was great. Don't pass this eatery up, and look for this entrance in the midst of your usual city storefronts:
How exciting! I have jumped into the blogging community! I hope I can be engaging and pass along some great information to everyone who happens upon my sweet corner of the inter-web!
So let's not dilly-dally. (But, you can give me a "Dilly, Dilly" if you so choose!!)
You may be asking, "What is Personal Branding Photography?" I would love to talk about it with you!
This is a service that may interest:
Personal Brand Photography works with the sole focus being YOU, and GROWING your reach. With custom, personalized images from the stories of your life, for use in conjunction with your everyday branding/marketing, you can shape the way your viewers recognize, see, and connect with you.
People love to do business with other human beings. So how do you convey that authentic appeal?
You become your own public image. Bare your soul, show the real you. Personal Branding Photography is more than a headshot. It is a window into who You are and what You are about. Not only that, but it is a session catered to you needs in business (we can talk about that in length more specifically later).
With images that can be used on social media and in marketing, and a library of your own curated photos, gone will be the unoriginal stock images and cookie cutter mindset. Instead, your audience will see who you are behind the scenes and what drives you. You WILL connect with more people.
Now I can't legally say you'll get xx,xxx many followers on your social media accounts or increase your revenue by $xx,xxx, but I can say this kind of service will speak for itself. You'll see. Keep following me to learn more, or if you are already hooked, send me a message on my contact form or get in touch with me somehow, someway. I am eager to work with those who are themselves eager about this market (Go back to my Home Page for the details!). And if you aren't yet eager, I am ready to pour my heart and soul out to you to convey my own enthusiasm!
All right ladies and gents, I am going to sign off. I will be back soon with more helpful information and get into more specifics for you. I want this to be as useful to your journeys as possible.
