Kourtnee Monroe shares her idea behind the concept Old New York

Kourtnee and her photographer Cochise are great friends. He was her personal photographer when she lived in Manhattan. They worked together so many times on various projects. The pair decided to explore the glamorous facet of her persona through a street-style photoshoot in New York, with the concept Old New York

Kourtnee Monroe explains her thoughts behind the concept, “I’ve always been inspired by old Hollywood glam and old New York which was such an elegant and regal time. I wanted to shoot somewhere upscale and iconic to New York City, so we booked a suite at The Lotte New York Palace. It is such an elegant and iconic hotel once owned by the Helmsley family.”

It is very easy to be inspired in such a beautiful place, so they took multiple great pictures with several outfits. Cochise is great to work with because he always gives great direction. “I know when I’m on camera, I’m shooting pictures for the world to see! I hope to do more fashion work soon!” Kourtnee Monroe exclaimed.
