I was walking home on a brisk night a few days ago when I had the sudden urge to simply smile. It was not the “I just remembered something funny” smile, but rather the “I just had a really great date” smile. It may be the relationship I have with living in the city and the abundance of energy that it exerts, but it also reminded me of a summer evening near Lincoln Center where a group of young ballet students danced and twirled as they passed me on the streets; and this energy is not different from the people that I photograph.

I was fortunate enough to come across Meghan again as she was taking a coffee break outside. I almost didn’t recognize her, but she approached me and eventually invited me into Billy Reid, where she works, for a glass of bourbon. I made my way around, gently sipping my glass as I admired the southern luxury pieces and the decorative antiques and furniture that take on an extremely warm and hospitable environment. It’s how I would’ve imagined if I traveled a few hundred miles and walked into a home in Louisiana. As I made my way out, I was kindly offered to visit anytime, whether for a drink or a place to warm up during the winter. I happily accepted the offer, took a breath of fresh air as I stepped out, and had that sudden urge to smile again.
