{photographer: jamie beck, new york}






I would love to live
Like a rivers flows.
Carried by the surprise
Of its own unfolding.

~ John O’Donohue

. . . late in may, what seems like an eternity ago, received the most charming letter from new york-based blogger/photographer jamie beck, who had the most beautiful idea to collaborate on a fashion photo shoot; unfortunately, was not to be in new york for another three months . . . and so jamie had the wonderful thought for a shoot exclusively for {this is glamorous}, and what resulted was the utterly captivating romance of upswept hair and fluttery gowns, bare shoulders and opera gloves, and the always enchanting central park in the fleeting moments before nightfall, capturing the quiet spells of what could be a moment of repose before the night’s festivities, {perhaps an elegant dinner party and dancing until the early morning light}, at the very instant when daydreams & fairytales have been known to float along in the dusky and magical evening air . . .



{p.s.} these images were shot on black & white film with an hasselblad, then hand processed and edited, the entire project taking four months to complete; this shoot also features the lovely styling work of anne of the city sage; more of jamie‘s wonderful work can be viewed on her blog, from me to you
