I feel very lucky to have met (and photograph) this sweet, quirky, and incredibly talented girl last summer, before she continued her travels around the world.  

an afternoon in greenwich village

When I was younger, I documented absolutely everything. My camera came along with me even if I was just going to the grocery store and I now have hundreds of thousands of photos stored away. I don't know why I eventually stopped, but I want 2015 to be the year I start, once again, documenting the things in my life that I don't want to forget.

Christiana and I had originally planned on spending the day walking around Manhattan with our cameras, but ended up sitting down for coffee + tea outside of a little café in Greenwich Village for a few hours.

 Maya flew in from London for a few weeks and I was absolutely thrilled to be able to steal her away for a quick afternoon shoot by the water!

I spent the last couple weeks of 2014 lusting after the place I now call my home. I go out to explore quite often, but I still find it hard to contain my excitement (as if it were something tangible that could burst out of me). In just a month I've spent so much of my time visiting art galleries, eating in little diners after Dominick gets off of work, shooting with new + old friends, and making vegetable pho in the tiniest kitchen I may ever have. I'm beyond excited to see where 2015 takes me and my work.

Ariane and I spent an entire afternoon wandering across 42nd Street, continuing to shoot even after the sun went down and my fingers were too numb to press the shutter.
