Two Sundays ago, it was pouring buckets. With so many fires breaking out on Long Island in the last few weeks, the rain was welcomed with open arms. I had two shoots lined up for that day, so we had to alter our plans a bit. The first shoot, which will be featured on another blog at some point in the Spring/Summer, was shot outside. It was so cold out! We had to run around in the rain to get to a covered area. We decided to head to a local library to shoot the second portion. It was a lot of fun, and some of the library staff asked what we were doing. They didn't mind; we were respectful and I'm pretty sure they found it amusing.

Perusing the history books.

I'm only 4'11", so I needed a boost to see the top shelf.
Brett found a Star Wars book for me. He knows what I like!

It was really nice, just relaxing in the library. We sat on the floor and talked about school, work and how much we wanted summer to be here already (although once the August heat is unbearable, we will be crying for autumn to arrive). I found a copy of Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist and started leafing through the book. I had seen the movie and liked it, so I'm sure the book would be pleasurable. There are lots of music references, which I'm a fan of, so maybe I'll check it out. I need to get a library card, though. I have one for the college, but not for the town libraries. Its foolish, because the libraries out here are AWESOME. 

One of the corners we occupied while frequenting the library.

Another amazing ring, handcrafted by Mary-Jo Peritore. She's a genius!
Getting really into an excerpt of the book.

I'm super stoked for you to see the other photos from the earlier shoot that day, but it'll have to wait until it surfaces on the other blog. Until then, we will all just have to wait and see. :)


  1. Cute photos. Books rock. I had no idea you were under 5 feet. So was my mom.

    1. Thanks! I used to barrel through multiple books per week when I was younger. I have hundreds of books at my dad's house, and another hundred or so at my mom's. Yeah, I'm pretty short. I like being small, though - my mom always told me that good things come in small packages. :)

  2. These photos are great!!! I SO want to do an outfit post in a library now! What a great idea!

    1. Thank you, Amanda! It was a lot of fun. You should definitely look into it. Thanks for checking out my blog, too!
