High Line and Brooklyn portraits of Janna and Joel

I had a lovely visit from my sister Janna and her boyfriend Joel last weekend. We started at the Brooklyn Brewery for their tour, and the light there was so pretty I knew I needed to shoot at least a few portraits.

We may have gotten a few strange looks as we played in the mess of hangers on the empty coat rack.
