E L L I E \ Part 1 of 3

Ah! This shoot is close to my heart!!! I have been photographing Ellie since she was in second grade!!!!

She & my son would model for me while I taught classes & learned photography!!!!  May have to post one of them in one of the posts!!!

This was a dream shoot! San Francisco! We got there & just went for it!! Couldn’t narrow down the pics, so thought I would just blog the three different locations!!!

Running a little late because of traffic & Union Square under construction, we just took a few deep breaths & started walking!!!!

Oh the places you can find to photograph in San Francisco!!!!

Ellie!!! You are my fave!! I just love you so so much!!!!!!

The best is yet to come, girl!!!! Dream big! & Pursue what you are passionate about!

jules

so the one thing you never want to happen as a photographer, happened….

as I was getting my gear situated, I had it on the passenger seat, I hopped out of the car to just get it out on that side..

in the meantime, somehow, my car locked itself…. & I  was completely locked out of the car, gearless!!

ahhh! miraculously, an angel, Carli Ray, who I haven’t seen in ages, walked out of a shop, & she took me home quick to get the spare key….

Thank you, Carli! You saved the day!!!! Oh man!!!!

& Jules, so patient!!!!! Thank you!!!!

Jules!!! Our shoot ended up really being a mini-session with the lock out ordeal, but so much fun we had…..

She is an incredible singer/actress. I saw her perform for the first time last year at Shasta’s Beauty & the Beast, so amazing!!

I was in awe! So excited for this year’s!! & she’s apart of Shasta’s Madrigal Dinner!! Cannot wait!!!! So incredibly talented!!!

Jules! You are so beautiful! Thank you for having me capture you!!!!!!
