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.)

Press Pause

Today is September 11 and I wasn't planning to post about it. In general I let the holidays and important days go by without comment on the blog. I'm not a pundit, and photography isn't politics or marketing.

But after a bit of reflection I thought I would say a few words.

Yes, this is a day of extreme sadness. Nine years ago the world changed in a few moments, and not for the better. But in my opinion it doesn't help anyone to use that day as an excuse for hatred or violence. We can do so much better than that.


I love backlight on grasses. It makes my heart sing.

And I love having the chance to go for a walk in the late afternoon, with no other purpose than to look for the beautiful light. And once I find it, just wallowing in it. Evan is very patient on our walks. He is getting used to me stooping down for no particular reason and taking ten photos of a blade of grass. I honestly couldn't have a better or more understanding boyfriend.
