New Year’s Eve at Studio 54 (and why it matters)

August 13, 2016 , , Carina Thornton

Anyone that knows me will tell you without hesitation that I am a homebody. I love being at home with a book, and a cat, and a cozy blanket. Add some tea to the equation and I really become a hermit. (And don’t even ask me about my LUSH bubble bath collection…) Peace and serenity are so very important to me. The world is a loud place and I admit that on most days I find it difficult to be out there in the middle of it.

But every now and then, a little spark goes off and I *must* get out. And when I venture out on an adventure, I *really* venture out. I tend to go all-out, over-the-top when I finally decide that something must be done. It kind of goes back to my inner geek that just gets crazy excited over really cool sh*t. If I’m going to do something, I’m going to really do something.

My typical New Years Eve is probably considered pretty pitiful to most: an early dinner at whatever place still has an open reservation for my last-minute choice (tip: it’s usually sushi for some reason), home by 10pm, on the couch in my PJs flipping between Doctor Who and Twilight Zone marathons by 10:10pm with a quick break from 11:50pm to 12:10am to crack open the champagne (Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Fleur because, well… once a year) and then up for an early morning run on the 1st, hangover free.

One year I had the idea that it would be fun to be in NYC for New Years. (I was born and raised in NY and that usually explains why I’ve never been to NY for New Years, or the 4th of July…) And if NYC on NYE is your plan, you may as well GO BIG. Designer clothes (I still have those seriously cool Gucci heels), half a day in the salon for hair and makeup (oh-so-glittery with extra eyelashes!), limo, and tickets to Studio 54. We’re talking red velvet ropes, baby.

The glitter in my logo? Yeah, that represents New-Year’s-Eve-Studio-54-level all-out!

Why does this matter?

Because I’m not a fan – at all – of cutting corners or compromising on quality.

Cherry Blossom photos? Gotta be the Tidal Basin!

Goodies with your session? Not just prints – mount those prints and wrap ’em in silk!

You get the idea – if you’re going to invest, you should get an experience and it should be full of delightful surprises and luxurious details! Whether it’s a mini session or the full Winery Experience, I want you to feel pampered and special. Because you are.
