Did a family shoot for two siblings and their beloved this past Fall. Its always fun to photograph people and their dogs. Since San Francisco is such a dog-friendly city we had a lot of options for locales. We had a fantastic session at Baker Beach, Washington Square Park in the North Beach neighborhood, and Pacific Heights.
Children’s photography is something I enjoy, and I want to do more of. Cute kids, really make my job easy! This little boy’s adorable looks, combined with a “joie de vivre” that only come from the young (& young at heart!), made this session a delight! His mother wanted to create an Andy Warhol-style multi-image print. We used their rooftop in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood and a few local nooks and crannies for our shoot.
My job leads to relationships with professionals in every field imaginable. This shoot was done for trade with the mom of this little boy, an amazing stylist named Shea English. Since my wardrobe was in need of a revamp, Shea hooked me up with her assistant Amanda Massi who went through my closet and we hit the town for some serious shopping. Never thought I would talk like this, but there you have it, and i feel great not wearing jeans 350 days a year! Thank you ladies, for a fantastic trade and a fun shoot!
Holly and Ian are this cute couple that found me on Google. They were getting married in a few weeks and wanted some fun creative shots around the city. We had a great time in Golden Gate Park, China Town, and North Beach. Afterward we went to grab some dinner and had the idea of going ice-skating. If they weren’t such a nice couple I probably would have left once we go to the rink, since it was freezing cold and the line was around the block. It didn’t take much to convince myself to stay, and I am glad I did. Here are some highlights from this 6 hour shoot.
This is the portrait session I did for Angeline and Sebastian’s wedding. Their dog, Mariposa, is a huge part of their life and they insisted on getting her for the shoot. I loved the idea of using their pet in the photos, but wanted to do something unusual and fun. These are the results of inserting this dressed up wedding couple and their dog in one of the busiest parts of the city. I absolutely love taking photos in North Beach. I loved every minute of this shoot. They are truly a great couple, and I am really glad I was part of their special day.
Miguel made this great video from the engagement shots I sent him. It was a pleasant surprise to see my work put together in a slideshow. We had a great time during the shoot, and despite the rain (or because of it), the photos came out very beautiful and unique. Miguel used the “Umbrella” song covered by John Peter West. I use John’s music on my wedding photography site, More info on John West: http://www.johnpeterwest.com/
