Korenberg Family Portraits | San Francisco Botanical Garden | San Francisco Family Photography

What a lovely afternoon in the San Francisco Botanical Garden, one of my favorite venues in the city for family photoshoots – shhh don’t tell the other photogs 🙂 J/K there’s enough beautiful space in urban nature out there for all of us to explore! We started out as many of my ventures out there do, just kinda wandering and seeing where the little ones take us. One of the first things mom says is “you’re just photographing them.” Of course I love following young ones around as they explore new and exciting things in the wild, but of course we had to pull mom and dad in for a few group photos. We explored together and saw everything from grassy fields to lakes and redwood forests. All in all a magnificent day in the park!

Spurchise Family Portraits | San Francisco Botanical Garden | San Francisco Family Photography

I’m excited to share some of the beautiful photographs from an afternoon with the Spurchise Family! We photographed in the San Francisco Botanical Garden and found an amazing redwood grove where we had a great time getting lost in the forest. I always love exploring new and interesting places with fun families 🙂

Instagram :: June 2012

Expression of daily life with Instagram and iPhoneography is a never ending adventure.  I’m happy to post the monthly update for June 2012.

Wine, camping, telescopes, palaces, concerts, the Golden Gate Bridge, rusty snails and nasty hospital food all caught my attention this past month…

Instagram :: January 2012

Hikes in Harriman and Bear Mountain State Parks in New York, more wine country trips, getting back into shooting more film, Yale University libraries and full moons kept me happy. Discovered a few more iPhone apps, notably Squareready (so you can square border your rectangular images to post without cropping in IG), Camera Plus Pro (iTunes link), where you can shoot using live filters for both stills and video. The B&W videos through CP Pro come out pretty awesome. While annoyingly slow to use, ShakeItPhoto (iTunes link) is a really cool way to get Polaroid type images from your iPhone.

For data and infographic minded folks, Photo Stats (iTunes Store link) is a really cool way to see all of the stats about the photos you make using your iPhone.  At last check before downloading and backing up all of my iPhone images, I learned I had 22356 MB of photos on my phone (taking up 86% of the phone storage), 67% of my photos were in landscape format, I generally make my images in the morning and late afternoon, the average shutter speed is 0.041 seconds and 0% of my images used the internal flash.

Happy iPhoning!

Instagram :: December 2011

Holidays, a new year, road trips, glorious hikes in the redwoods of California and a trip to NY. All of that kept me pretty busy in December. Still loving iPhoneography through Instagram, and absolutely loving the Snapseed app from Nik Software, where I process at least half of my mobile images these days.

Carlos Family Portraits

 

Though we often focus on candids and natural organic settings during shoots, the Carlos family was born to pose as a loving family group for some wonderful photos. We left enough time to explore the San Francisco Botanical Gardens together, and we found some of the most beautiful and glorious areas to frame this great family. Lots of fun and lots of laughs all make for a relaxing afternoon of making fabulous family photos!

Monroy Family

What a glorious sunny day for a summertime trip to the San Francisco Botanical Garden in Golden Gate Park! You never know what you’re going to see in bloom, and we all had a great time visiting the various areas within the garden.

Vasquez Family

A beautiful day in Stern Grove with the Vasquez family. There was plenty of time for exploring the fields and hiking into the redwood trees. We all shared some good laughs clowning around together 🙂
