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.)

Summer came to San Francisco today after weeks of rain and drab gray skies. It felt like what it was: a reprieve. A chance to wear short sleeves, to go hang out in the park, to wander the city streets after dark, just because.

I met up with a friend for a long-awaited reunion, some chardonnay and a piece of peach pie. After a lot of good conversation, we walked home and we could see the stars. It was still warm enough to be wearing one layer.

Sometimes, freedom is as simple as not having to worry about being cold when you step outside.


  1. This is a really fun portrait...I love the unique look you achieved!

  2. Wow, Jessica, I love this portrait. Of course I am biased on the subject matter, but it's so painterly - the light, the rendering, the composition. It really evokes the feeling I have of Florida too.

  3. oh my geee! remember how excited we were to ride that tandem?? i look so cool though.


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