a brooklyn photo shoot











photos by anna li

One of the highlights of my New York trip was being photographed with Emily by the sweet and talented Anna Li. We shot in Prospect Park during that magical golden hour and frolicked about like children on a sugar high. In fact, we caught the attention of pretty much every little girl under the age of 5 in the park, probably because we looked like fairies in our flower crowns and ruffled vintage dresses. One adorable girl watching us asked her dad if we were little girls too, and another joined us in spinning around and around until we were all dizzy and nearly falling over. The larger photos above were shot on film and the smaller ones are from Anna's Instagram. Now I just need these ladies to come visit me in San Francisco so we can shoot again...

I love that a girl asked if you were little too! So precious! These photos are really enchanting. They look like paintings that should be hanging in the Musee D'Orsay or something.
