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.)

When I got to Florida last month, I really wasn't sure exactly what to expect. I knew Phoebe was going to be awesome, but otherwise I was a little unsure. Call it jitters, I guess. I'd never shot any real video before; I'd never spent so much time with a client before, and I'd certainly never done it all in two weeks a few thousand miles from my home.

It was insanely lucky, then, that Wendy was so incredible. Not only is she an amazing musician, she's also a fabulous hostess, a super bike rider, excellent at swimming with a drink in her hand (not easy, folks!), and a superb cook. One day maybe I'll share her garlic salad dressing recipe with you all. It's to die for.

Anyway, Wendy Webb is awesome. You should go check out her website here, and a YouTube video of her song Only For Love, if you want to hear what she sounds like. She's got great pipes!

Here are a couple of shots from the trip.

Lensbaby at f/5.6, I think. Hard to remember. ISO 500, 1/50s. 

85mm, f/1.2, ISO 800, 1/100s (I was borrowing the lens. GREAT glass.)



  1. You're right . . . nice talent, and you got some great shots here.

  2. that is some good glass, how do you like the 85mm focal length?

  3. Love my 85 (the f/1.8). And the f/1.2 is like butter. So creamy and smooth. But waaaay out of my budget. 85mm is a nice focal length on a full frame sensor. Maybe a little long on a crop sensor.

  4. I love all the flattery in this post, but the truth was, WE were so lucky to have you Jessica! You are so wonderful in general, but especially wonderful on a prolonged shoot like this one. You always have your head on straight, your eyes open, a calming demeanor, and a steady energy!

    All your subjects and clients are beyond lucky to have you!


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