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.)

Right Now I'm Loving . . . January

Honeycrisp Apples. I've always been an apple lover, but man! Honeycrisps are even better than my old go-to favorite, Braeburn. And I'm a picky apple eater. But these are perfect: crisp, juicy, sweet but not too sweet. Love at first bite. Incredible that they've only existed for about 19 years. Science is amazing, isn't it?

JetPens Ohhh I wish I had never discovered this site. it all started when I picked up a pen someone had left behind, fell in love with it and then discovered it wasn't available in any stores. Then I found out it was from Japan (as all good stationery supplies are) and googled it, just for fun. Well, if you've ever wanted to buy some Japanese pens but didn't know where to look, your wait is over! Just be careful, it's addictive. The pen I fell in love with, Pentel's Hi-Tec-C, is right here.

Behance Action Journal A related tale of stationery addiction began at SFMoMA where I was innocently browsing the museum store and chanced upon the Behance Action Cahier. I thought it would be a cute, portable way to carry around my endless to-do lists. And it was, it's awesome. Plus the paper is 100% post-consumer recycled. And I do actually feel a lot more productive. (Is that the placebo effect?) These are hard to find it stores, but you can order them online. And in person, they're gorgeous. Especially the Action Journal which I recently graduated to. Now I just need some Action Stickers to round it all out.

And last but certainly not least, my Fresh Sugarplum Lip Treatment. Makes chapped lips good as new almost immediately, plus it smells and feels amazing, and it has an awesome color (probably only for the ladies, though, sorry gents!).

*Full disclosure: the only relationship I have with these companies is that I waste my hard-earned money on their nefariously attractive products.*
