Saturday Afternoon At Old Westbury Gardens

Although I love fashion very much; I must admit that I am not confidence to pose in front of camera any more. But there is a small part of me telling I should just enjoy it while I can and just go for it. So here I am.

Old Westbury Gardens situated in Long Island. I regretted that I did not come here during this spring and summer time to take pictures of the surrounding beauty of the once home and estate of heir to US Steel fortune John S. Phipps and his family. {More; here.}

It is now a museum and open to public. The sprawling landscape and gardens are just beautiful. This time I did not see many flowers because it is the end of summer and coming into fall and winter. Next year I promise myself that I would come here often start in spring where flowers starts to bloom.

I am now into photography. And I start to enjoy taking pictures of people especially young kids. Here I wanted to experiment taking pictures of people {or 'me' I should say} outdoor and using natural light. I always want to learn new things on how to use the camera so I can take beautiful photography. I found it is quite challenging right now but I believe and with so many sources to learn out there like youtube, pinterest and yes you can enroll to a class too; one day I can take better and beautiful photos.

Here, I asked my husband Steven to take these pictures. He is one of those people with camera in their hands and just point and shoot type of photographer. So I directed him a lot in this photo shoot session at Old Westbury Gardens.  And as you can imagine it was hard, because I ran a round with my high heels back and forth. {I did have another pair of comfortable shoes with me.} These are not the best photos but they are good enough for now.

What I am  wearing;
- Top; random from Marshall, here
- Pants; thrifted from Goodwill
- Hat; from Lord and Taylor, here
- Shoes; Christian Louboutin Pigalle, here
- Bag; Marc Jacobs satchel, here
