susie + katie | new york city

what a treasure to photograph these two. and what a treasure to do so in nyc. I briefly met susie when we were both living in durham, nc a few years back. her and her partner, katie, moved out to new york city this past year and when I knew I'd be visiting in the fall, I reached out to susie to see if she'd be interested in connecting. I received a warm and unequivocal yes.

I loved exploring the city with these lovely women. each time I visit new york city, I fall more and more in love with the place. It's increasingly difficult to leave because I find the environment incredibly intoxicating and creatively energizing. there is so much life, difference, grit, and magic. susie + katie share new pockets of the city with me. we meandered around west village and made our way to main street park in brooklyn. spending time with them was easy and joy-filled. I could have easily photographed them all day. their love is quiet, gentle, and also so expressive, too. these photographs are so very dear to me and a set that I'm really quite proud of.

enjoy. xx.
