Los Angeles-New York

Teenage girl leaning on her arm

I often wonder about the differences of growing up NY vs LA… no need to watch too much Gossip Girl or 90210 to know, that they do grow up different; wether it’s the weather, the size of the homes, the pace of life, or the fact that kids can actually get around town on their own….but I am somewhat obsessed with knowing what it’s like! I asked my first cousin once removed, Danielle, who was visiting our west coast colleges for next year….¬†about her life as a teen attending a Performing Arts School; but she looked at me as if I was crazy and “Why on earth do you want anything to do with high school…” that I dropped it…I guesss I’ll just have to wait till a TV remake of FAME comes around so that I can find out the truth! Since she was staying the night here, I offered to photograph her – but between the kids showing off their magic tricks, their dance moves and their noise making, and her studying for a subject specific SAT (did I get that right, I just know she’s super smart and studies hard and will be just fine !) we had about 15 minutes to get some photos before they left for the airport to catch the flight back home, and even though she giggled, and exclaimed that NO ONE has ever gotten a good photo of her, I insisted on trying out a few shots – I mean how often do I get a born and raised New Yorker in my paws??!!? So….Danielle – I wish I could take all the credit, but like I said, you are gorgeous, and please, do not cut off too much!!!!!

We looked it up online just to make sure – Zoe and Danielle are Second cousins…..just incase you were wondering about the connection….

Your aunt Lynn - WOW you have gorgeous cousins and gorgeous 2nd cousins/cousins once removed and are they lucky to have someone to catch them for eternity, who has a knack of capturing their essence

Way to go my lovely niece wish you were nearby so all my family and my friends and their friends could come and do their books and all their important event and not event photographs
