If you were to see my calendar, you would either be really impressed or you would be horrified of how packed and color coded it is. I wasn’t always like this, I used to be so “go with the flow”. Now I make lists (I’m always running out of paper, and yes I keep them digitally as well) On the calendar was a free presentation in one of Apple’s stores in Soho. I told a friend to meet there, and since he was still far away, I decided to walk and catch some Pokemon (that’s another story for another day).
While making my way toward Soho to go see Mario. You know who it is, “Oh, baby you, you got what I need, but you say I’m just friend“. Yeah, you know the song, I bet you sang that, didn’t you. I’m not a crazy Mario fan, he hasn’t really come out with any new music in a little bit, not that I’m aware of at least. But the singles he did have, I was always singing. And I have a huge love for concerts (even though this wasn’t concert) it was free, and anyone who knows me, knows that “free” is my favorite number.
I guess the universe had a different plan for me, because when I passed Madison Avenue, smack down the middle of the street was an interactive pop up hosted by Calvin Klein and Amazon Fashion. Of course I stopped and asked a event staff guy what was going on. I noticed the small stage, and I already knew someone was going to come out, they just had to, I felt it in my bones. I asked him who it would be and he didn’t know. He checked his email and told me ASAP. In my mind, I’m like okaaaaay, but ASAP who, ASAP FERG, ASAP ROCKY, the mob has a few people.. he just looked at me like I spoke Chinese. I grabbed his phone and read the name for myself. I knew it, ROCKY. I made my way inside.. duh! Like I’m going to go see Mario now (if you ever see this Mario, no offense, I still like you).
I’m not gonna lie, I was getting a bit antsy, especially because it was starting to get to packed, and you know people when something is free, pushing and shoving. But I was already pretty hype because you have to soak it in, that you don’t always know everything. You can’t plan every single detail of your life. I got to experience a wonderful moment, and if my friend wasn’t running late, I wouldn’t have walked, I wouldn’t have bumped into a better (who an compare?) event and be up close to such a handsome man…. oh yes ROCKY… you are fine… any way (cough cough) Check out these shots I grabbed. Love!
Oh, and you can see some more photographs of concerts that I captured on millistephaniaphotography.com

Just because you’re sitting far, it doesn’t mean you can’t get decent shots. The Soulfrito Music Festival at Barclay’s Center was jam packed with amazing artists like French Montana, Fetty Wap, Farruko, Young M.A., Bad Bunny, Cardi B, G- Unit, Ivy Queen and many many more. I was trying to hard to find a balance between photographing, and dancing the whole night. What a blast!

A concert on a Tuesday. I never make plans on weekdays, but when the Mega Mezcla is happening, I knew I had to be there. I invited my sister-in-law, Taimane, as an early birthday present, we had a blast.
Alex Sensation is my favorite DJ, and alongside his mixing skills there were top reggeaton artists like J Alvarez, Cosculluela, Maluma, Farruko, Yandel, Donor Omar, Romeo Santos and Ozuna.
Oh man, when Don Omar was singing “Ella y yo” Romeo Santos came out as a surprise guest, and I’m telling you… I lost my voice. I was screaming so loud! My raspy voice was worth it at work the next day.
