Read on for more from the photographer, Christine Donee:
“For this California Mission shoot, we were deeply inspired by the moments that evoke more than just a feeling, but take grasp of your soul and leave a mark that never disappears: the smell of old books, a lover’s glance, a melody that echoes through that streets. It’s these simple fragments of life that are the most magical, and that is what we sought to capture.”
