the fog.

I love the fog. I wish I was some sort of writer that you could refer to as that writer who is known for writing about fog.  I want to be that person.  Because I am that person who sits and watches and soaks in the fog.  I could sit among it all day if I could.  I would make it my perfect spot for reading.  My only spot for thinking.  The place where I'd retreat when I was sad, and the place I'd run to scream out my success.  The fog feels like home.

On my adventure with Jensine, we were lucky to see the sun rise over the Bay Area then we were doubly lucky that same morning to see the city still covered in its layer of fog.  We headed over to Lands End in search of a labyrinth but I also found myself.  I found the spot.  I found the spot I've been thinking of all week.  The spot which I want to spend endless foggy mornings reading.  The spot I want to plan my takeover of the world.  The spot I want to share picnics with the one I love.

If you could, you'd want to be there with me, too.  It was amazing.

San Francisco Maternity Session | Denise & Ryan

It must be baby season. I don't know if it's a coincidence or what but the beginning of this year was full of babies and pregnant ladies.  And strangely enough, I don't have any baby/maternity clients during wedding season.  I really love pregnant ladies and babies, so I was happy to photograph Denise and Ryan for their maternity session a couple months back.  Ryan, a man after my own heart, is an architect.  He chose all these wonderful spots that any architect would truly love.  We started at Bernal Heights Park, with it's magnificent view of the city, then headed to Lands Ends where we took a peace stroll along the side of the coast.

It was such a beautiful day, and I loved seeing them again!

Love | Ruby & Ben

I have a confession... I get more excited about meeting bloggers than famous people. Actually, in my mind these bloggers are famous. swoon.  So imagine my excitement when I met Ruby and her husband, Ben.  I've been following her blog, My Cakies, since her second little girl was just a baby.  Now they have four little girls!  She and Ben were up in San Francisco on a little vacation and we actually had the session on the day of her birthday!

Like so many of the people I photograph, Ruby and Ben were at ease in each other's arms.  I had so much fun photographing them and giving them this little souvenir from San Francisco. Head over to Ruby's blog to see more pictures.  Here's a snippet of her blog post.

"I am so in love with all her pictures. I think she totally captured how I look at Ben. I always look at Ben with so much googly eyes because he really makes me googly eyed in a very good way. Just looking at these pictures makes my heart all a flutter on how thankful I am that God placed Ben and me together."

Ruby & Ben's love session was featured on Brooklyn Bride! Check out the feature and see even more pictures of Ruby and Ben.  Hurray.
