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.)

Jannine - San Francisco Portrait Photographer

Jannine's a good friend. So one day we got together and decided to make some portraits!

Frankly, she's any photographer's dream subject, but it's important to note that even someone as inherently photogenic as Jannine started out feeling a little leery in front of the camera. I totally sympathize; I am the worst photographic subject ever because the whole time I feel like micromanaging whoever is taking the picture. Evan can totally attest to this.

But we started out by talking about the kind of portraits she liked, what styles she thought seemed more like her, and then we got into it. And after the first few minutes the awkwardness melts away. It's part of any portrait session. Getting comfortable. Trusting the photographer. Sometimes it happens faster, sometimes you have to ease into it. But once you get there, it's golden.

Many, many thanks to Jannine for making it so easy on me.

I LOVE this one. I feel like it just shows what a great person she is.

And then we raided her closet for a skirt and played with some motion.

Thanks so much J! You are super cool. You know it.
