This sweet family, recently transplanted to the Bay Area, immediately found a comfy spot in my heart. They were just so fun to be with, and so easy to photograph. The connection between them all, the way in which each person had room to be so completely themselves was awesome and sweet and beautiful.
Crissy Fields was a perfect location for their session for two reasons- firstly because they are an outdoorsy family (and true enough Thomas was soon engrossed with jelly fish on the shore while Becca and Mary were burying each other’s legs in the sand) and secondly because they move around the country a fair bit for work, so having the iconic Golden Gate bridge in the background was a nice anchor and symbol of this time and place in their lives. That last shot is an absolute favourite. Ha! Who am I kidding? All of these are favourites!!
On a foggy weekend morning at the Legion of Honour in the city, I had the heartwarming privilege of capturing Betsabe and her mum who was visiting from Mexico with my camera. They were nurturing, affectionate and oh! So! Beautiful! We laughed, they smiled and my heart grew heavy and full with all the love surrounding us.
More from this session soon. Thanks again for a gorgeous morning, las modelos!
(Yep. I just posted an inside joke on my blog. Don’t hate me ‘cos I’m beautiful.)
Just before Helen headed off for a year in Korea, we spent an afternoon together so I could make pictures of her doing some of her favourite things and saying goodbye (for a little while) to some of her favourite places in the neighbourhood of San Francisco that she grew up in.
We started out at a local diner (with a yummy breakfast) that Helen’s been visiting with her family since she was a kid.
Then we went across the street to her parents’ dry cleaning store.
Helen, hope Korea is treating you well. Can’t wait to see and hear about everything you did there. You’re beautiful, thanks for a lovely afternoon. (Stay tuned for more images from this awesome session!)
