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.)

Franzi - San Francisco Portrait Photographer

You've already met Franzi. But I wanted to share some of the rest of our session together.

Franzi came to me knowing what she wanted: she wanted an image that could work on a holiday card, with a recognizable San Francisco icon in the background, and enough space for a poem or a quote (she's a poetry fiend!). I love it when my clients know what they want, and it's really satisfying when we can work together to completely nail it.

Here's the front of the card that we ended up designing together. I just love that quote, and obviously it's so appropriate for the photo!

And here are a few more from the session.

Thanks so much Franzi! Hope you're enjoying the next adventures on your sabbatical!


  1. Such a beautiful photographs collection looking so great images.Thanks a lot for sharing with us. I'll visit your blog again.

  2. Thank you so very much from the bottom of my ..heart Jessica! You are such an inspiring teacher and such a talented photographer too! I’ve received dozens of enthusiastic replies to your convincing, lovely image of the bridge and me! I remember the lessons under your competent care with joy and gratitude! Missing San Francisco so much and having difficulties right now to familiarize myself again with the old world, grazing with the old dinosaurs in the snow..It’s cold and grey here, the people look pale. Luckily the carnival season will start next week in Basel.
    With all good wishes to San Francisco! Fränzi

  3. Thanks Franzi! What are you up to these days? Still on your way around the world?


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