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.)

Lara and I go way back. When we were just little poodles (as she would say) we played soccer together. The only difference was that she was pretty good, and I wasn't quite so much. (Team sports and I have never been the best of friends.)

We ended up in the same AP French class in high school, and started hanging out a little more. Still not a lot. And then kind of flukily we both chose McGill for college and Linguistics to major in (out of all the unprofitable choices! just kidding, I loved it. Every last drop.) And then we ended up living together our final year. After which she hared off to Israel for a while, and then I hared off to Thailand, among other places.

But we both ended up back here, and so we got together recently for a little mini photoshoot. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate, so we ended up doing it inside my tiny, very unstudio-like apartment. But we still got some fun shots nevertheless.

Great socks!

Lara, you are super gorgeous, and I would be happy to have you in front of my camera any day!

So, when can we have a reshoot?


  1. Isn't it funny how life has a way of throwing people together? Wonderful shots of your beautiful friend!

  2. Lovely shots. I especially like the soft lighting on her beautiful face in the first image and the miniblinds make a very interesting backdrop!

  3. Great job. These should be a treasure for Lara, forever.

  4. Now we know who yesterdays eye belongs to, and the third shot really shows her SOX appeal. One question, I did Indonesian full time for a year and had no fellow students that pretty, How Come LOL

  5. I will definitely treasure these photos, taken the day before my 27th birthday. Thanks so much Jessica!!!
    Unfortunately, I can't claim the eye from yesterday's post, for mine have some green in there...is it Evan's?
    I'd love to have a re-shoot in January. I hope the weather stays as pretty as it has been today!

  6. The eye yesterday was Evan's, how astute of you, Lara!

    And I will hold you to that shoot in January, with the hope that we hang out some time without a camera as well.


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