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 🙂

Wiggen Family Portraits | Alta Plaza Park | San Francisco Family Photography

I’m excited to share some of the beautiful photographs from an afternoon in June with the Wiggen Family! We photographed at Alta Plaza Park in San Francisco on a glorious summer day! We were even lucky enough to have grandma join us for this shoot while she was in town for the week, and it’s great to have been able to capture those special family moments for everyone.

Akosua | Artist Portraits | San Francisco Bay Area Music Photography

 

Last August I had to pleasure to photograph Akosua for images for her upcoming EP. The CD has gone into production and is soon to be released, and so are some of the photos from the shoot!

It was a pleasure photographing this talented artist in such a beautiful setting as Joaquin Mill Park in Oakland, CA. I never even knew this place was there until Akosua suggested it for a location for our shoot, and it’s definitely a place I would return to either for an afternoon of photographing or simply just relaxing in the trees or by the fountain. Best of luck in the release of the EP Akosua!

Editorial Portraits of Emre for Ingenjören Magazine

Portraits of Emre for Ingenjören Magazine, a publication for the national Swedish Engineers association. Emre is a computer programmer completing his MSc in data while working as a graduate student at the SF Bay Area tech firm Splunk. We met up in the morning and headed down to the Fort Point area of SF for a few shots in a classic San Francisco setting. The rain had just begun clearing from the night before, leaving us with a beautiful big softbox of a mostly overcast day, my favorite weather to photograph under 🙂

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.

Morgan, Tom and (Their Golden Retriever) Barkley :) | Couples Portraits

 

It’s not everyday that I get to photograph a couple and their cute little dog. This was one of those days! We decided to head over to the dog park side of Stern Grove (which Barkley was pretty psyched about!) and rambled around the fields and explored the woodsy area for a while. Morgan and Tom are a great couple and having their pooch around helped to keep everyone laughing and excited through the shoot!
