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.)

I Have the Best Boyfriend Ever

Recently, I decided that I needed some new pictures of myself. Not being one for self portraits, I decided to enlist the help of the ever eager to help Evan (ok, actually I had to twist his arm a little, I'm not going to lie). We went for a walk. And so I thought, I'll frame the shot with him as a stand in for me, and then I'll hand him the camera and he can push the shutter button. Kind of like boyfriend-as-tripod.

Unfortunately, Evan has a will of his own, and this method didn't really suit his style. He insisted on taking control of the whole shoot. So the whole time I'm going, "Don't shoot up on me! How is the light? I think the light's too hot!" And then he'd ask me to step into the sun and I'd be like, "No direct sun! What's your aperture?"

So, a little backing and forthing, yes. But who cares when the end result is some photos like these? I love them! (And actually, that direct sun thing turned out ok!)


  1. Evan is lucky, you're beautiful.The picture are great. I think you get Evan more involved in photography.

  2. Missed it, think you "need to" get

  3. That Evanpod works well, - wonderf what his bribe was hmmm? Both very useable.

  4. I've said it once, and I will say it again, you better keep that boyfriend of yours! These really turned out fabulous...beautiful portraits of a beautiful girl!

  5. I have one problem with the photo...
    When a portrait is taken of someone with glasses, it is critical that the glasses don't cover the eyes.
    So, I find it very distracting that your left eye is partially covered, and your right eye is almost covered.....
    Push the glasses up on your nose so your looking through them.

    Other then that the shots are very nice.



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