It's been a while, huh?

The other day, I had to update my billing information so that I could renew this site. And I thought, What's the point of paying for Squarespace if I don't actually take advantage of it? It's true I haven't been shooting enough, or much at all. But I want to get my money's worth, you know?

These photos of Kelly are from the last day in April. I got a haircut, then met her at a Starbucks and we headed over to Central Park. Blossoming spring photos may as well be a tradition at this point. (So is me posting them late, it seems.) It was a beautiful day, and I finally, finally figured out how to free lens, which I have been trying to figure out since the first time Kelly and I shot together!


Kelly and I went to Inwood Hill Park yesterday. She's shot there before, but I never had, and have wanted to check it out for ages thanks to her beautiful photos! We walked through the park, slightly lost, in awe of how quickly you can go from knowing you're in NYC to feeling like you might be someplace else entirely. It was hot and humid, but I'm glad we went for the sake of beautiful photos.

Normally it takes me longer than a day to edit photos, but as I looked through them later, I saw exactly how to take the photos I had made and make them into something still more cohesive: a short story about a forest goddess, imperial and welcoming at the same time.
