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.)

Merry Christmas!

I love the holidays. I know they can be stressful, frustrating, and full of enforced good cheer, but I feel like it all just comes down to this: life is too short to miss any opportunity for celebration.

And this season is full of opportunities for celebration.

So I hope you all have been celebrating, or are celebrating, or will celebrate sometime soon. Because life is too short - and really, opportunities are everywhere.

Franzi - Sneak Peek

Just this past weekend Franzi and I met up at the Golden Gate Bridge for a sunrise portrait session. It was a little drizzly and cold, but I think we got some amazing images! Here's just one to whet your appetites.

Finding a Balance

Finding your balance on top of a jeep is also pretty essential!

So, I apologize that the blogging has been a bit sporadic of late. For the most part, that's a good thing. What it means is that I'm busy. And busy with good things: friends, family, work, photography (although not much for myself as of late, but again, that's fine).

I love having a full life. Although, at times, it feels a little too full, so finding a balance is still key. That's the hardest thing, of course - balance - hard to find and even harder to maintain, but one hundred percent worth the effort in the end.

Do any of you have any work/life balance tips you'd be willing to share? I am all ears.

Cats on Gray, Part 2

A few more cats and kittens for you. I think these cuties are the perfect way to start a new week.

This is Ellie. I always have a soft spot in my heart for gray cats. Sorry, Mouse and Chee, but it's true.

And any cat with a white belly is also an instant favorite.

This confident dude is Tonka, so named because he's built a little like a truck (in a good way!).

I love those gorgeous yellow eyes!

This petite girl is Trudy. She's a sweetheart, and she loves to play with toys.

Isn't that a gorgeous face?

Claws out!!

And this small stalker is Stripe. She was so fast! Like a whiz kitty. she loved to attack the toy, but she also delighted in shooting past us and hiding (unsuccessfully) behind the roll of gray paper. She'll keep her new owners on their toes, that's for sure!

And her brother Balrog was pretty much the same, although he didn't run and hide. Still, he's a quick one! I hope they get adopted together; they'll make a wonderful spirited pair for someone.

And this little cutie is Rubio. He was brought to the shelter as a stray, but he's cute as a button, and very very sweet. He was happier in my arms than out on the scary gray paper. He also tried to climb up to my shoulder!

What a pretty face. Love that chin!

And last but not least, Charlie's Angel (what a name, eh?). He was quite a scaredy cat, so we only got this one picture of him, but he really likes people, so when he calms down a bit he'll be a great cat.

Hope you enjoyed these cats! Don't forget you can adopt them all. Happy Monday!
