Binghamton University Global Day of Service

The Binhamton University Rowing Association (BURA) and members of the vast Binghamton University Alumni Association cleaned up the East River Park. Volunteers cultivated planting beds along the East River by weeding, mulching, planting native plants and removing invasive plants. The Ecology Center provided all the needed tools and supplies, including gloves. Volunteers should carry snacks and water as there are no food concessions in the park. 

Later on in the day, I joined the Alumni of Color Network at the Nuyorican Poets Cafe located on New York City's Lower East Side. There volunteers worked on a series of projects and tasks, such as painting, cleaning, landscaping and organizing.

Priyanka Baby Shower - Garden City Hotel

Priyanka and Akshat are expecting their first child this June. To celebrate friends and family threw Priyanka a beautiful, and very pink, baby shower at the Garden City Hotel on Long Island. Photographing this duo, their welcoming families, and fun friends was easy. They had a beautiful venue, hand crafted details, colorful home made desserts, a luxurious backdrop, and family and friends to fill an already warm atmosphere. Not to mention, the selection of games was fun to witness and capture.
