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.)

Valentine's Day

(Yes, I know I'm a day late. Please ignore that fact for me.)

A little over three years ago, Evan and I went on our first date. And because we were both slightly dorky, and didn't have any brilliant ideas of what to do, we decided to go to the zoo.

The rest, as they say, was history. That zoo trip was the beginning of something that took us both to Thailand together, and then through many, many different countries, finally plopping us both back down here in San Francisco three years later.

So this year to celebrate and reminisce we decided to go to the zoo again. On Valentine's Day, which is close enough to our anniversary that we figured we could celebrate both at the same time. I was excited, I brought my camera with my long zoom and my 50mm prime.

But, such is life, we got to the zoo and the line was around the block, so we decided to reconsider. Evan, being the amazing boyfriend that he is, suggested that we drive down the coast and stop along the way so that I could take some pictures. What could be more perfect than that?

We had an amazing day.


Went to the beach today as part of our Valentines Day (more on that tomorrow), and I happened to just love this view of the wall that separates the beach from the street level. And this little girl (or boy - not sure) in the bottom corner of the shot just made it for me. Plus the silhouettes of all the people in the distance - love them!

For all of you suffering through snowy winters, I just want to make you feel a little better: yes, I have a beach, but I have to wear a sweater when I go. It's not a beach for swimming or tanning, exactly.
