Recapping my favorite shoot to date! I had the opportunity to shoot with Sharlene, from Sharlene Photography a couple of weeks ago while I was visiting Las Vegas. We headed out to Calico Basin which is a nice little taste of the Redrocks that is the cutest little spot for hiking, picnicking and of course photo shoots! After this shoot I am itching to go back and explore more of the west coast – I absolutely loved it there and cannot wait to be back! Shout-out to Sharlene for being so accommodating and making this so much fun for me (I couldn’t stop telling her how lucky she was to see palm trees everyday & live near the desert, ha ha ).
Before our weekend get-away to the Mount Airy Casino Resort in the Poconos, my boyfriend and I wanted to find the perfect place that had plenty of entertaining activities to do inside (the temp. was in the low 20’s all weekend and there was no snow for outdoor activities!), as well as a place to do some relaxing and recharge our batteries before the chaos that is NYFW!
If you’re looking for a good NYC weekend-get-a-away, this is the perfect spot! The drive was a little over 2 hours (with some traffic). I spent plenty of time researching the perfect place that would offer everything we were looking for when I stumbled upon this resort. My first attraction to it was the fact that it had so many rave reviews (average is a 4.4/5 on any travel site!). They are also one of two properties in Pennsylvania awarded as a AAA 4 Diamond Casino Resort! I’m super picky about reviews and overall cleanliness of the room and facilities. Most resorts in the Poconos are very outdated and haven’t been updated in years. Although it’s part of the charm, it’s really nice when you find a place that’s so modern and well taken care of.
