I'm so glad you found me! I'm a San Francisco photographer, and this blog charts my journey in the ever-evolving world of photography. One of the things I love about photography is that it's a journey, not a destination. I'm constantly learning and meeting wonderful people. Please peruse the blog to your heart's content, then check out my website and feel free to contact me! (I love hearing from you.)

Inspired by Sandra Juto's lovely blog, I have decided to have a swap.

The way it works is pretty simple. I am pretty much addicted to hot beverages, can't go a day without them - most of my friends will agree that they hardly ever see me in the morning without a mug in my hand - and so, I propose a trade.

You send me the makings of a delicious hot beverage, be it tea, coffee, hot chocolate, something more exotic, whatever! and I will send you an 8x10 print of any photo of your choice from my blog.

At the moment I think I can only manage five swaps, but maybe in the future I'll do something a little more ambitious. You can sign up in the comments, and I will swap with the first five to comment. Please mention in the comments which photo you would like a print of.

I'm so excited to try this out!


  1. Let me get this straight...I send you the ingredients in a hot drink and you send me a pic?? Sounds fun...I love your Alamo Square image (I have never been to San Fransisco and this is such a wonderful classic city scene which to me is the essence of the city).

    Fun idea!

  2. This is a great idea Jessica, I'll send you a good Irish tea bag - I think I'd pick the Late Afternoon picture just put up there second last, it's really distinctive.

  3. Hi!
    This is an awesome idea! But where do we send the hot drink package to? I think I would like to have the More Blossoms shot. That is so beautiful! Reminds me of spring which I wish would hurry and get here, I'm so tired of snow, ice and more of the same. Have a great day!


  4. Hi Jessica

    This is just a great idea. I like your Alamo Square image, that one says S.F. all over it. Count me in please.

  5. Awesome, I will email all of you shortly with the details. So glad to finally be doing this, it's one of the ideas that's been on the back burner for a while . . .

    Still space for one more!

  6. Sending you a virual hot-cuppa: the good won't pass customs, but I bet you can find the ingredients in your local Chinatown... it's a link to a post on my food photog blog for a non alcoholic mulled wine called: SANGUINA...


I love comments! I read and cherish every single one. Go ahead, make my day.
