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.)

San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts Engagement - Clarisa and David

It seems like forever ago that I posted the sneak peek of this lovely engagement session; I think it's fair to say that I've been neglecting the blog. Not completely, of course; I've still been posting a few things here and there, but the blog hasn't had my full attention.

Still, this was such a fun session! Clarisa and David were total troopers, as the weather turned out to be rather reminiscent of a questionably apocryphal quote from Mark Twain: in other words, it was wet. Wet and cold, and windy.

Still, of course, it was beautiful. I am strongly of the mindset that sometimes the worst weather can make for some of the best photos, and in this case the fog just made everything soft and pretty. Not, of course, that Clarisa and David needed any help with that!

Oh, and did I mention that they brought adorable Nathaniel along with them? Who also braved the cold in fine fashion, and showed almost endless patience with having his picture taken.

Look at those gorgeous eyes!

And of course we needed some baby-kissing shots.

Isn't Clarisa just gorgeous?


I just love this one!!

Calrisa and David, thank you so much for a beautiful session. I can't wait for your wedding in October!
