I fell in LOVE with Sydney the minute I met her. She was so full of energy and curiosity and such a sweet face. And even though she just started walking, she truly gave me a run for my money when she moved. Always a challenge in dim light! It was funny how many times this shoot was rescheduled because of the weather...maybe 4 or 5? it got to be a running joke between emails. I am so happy that we waited and ended up with the most perfect afternoon in San Francisco. I love the more moody shots in the grove, especially contrasting the soft pastel colors of sunset and twilight...that's what makes golden gate park such an amazing place to take photos: so much variety in close quarters. Thank you Sydney, for sharing your wonder with the camera.



Simple Album Layouts

I think it's so important to live with your images, to print them, hang them, hold them on your lap. I offer two different album types here at the studio and the full bleed, modern layout is very popular. This contemporary look is also called 'magazine' style, although i tend to steer away from the coffee table books and only use the best book binding materials. Clients have the choice between a classic leather cover or soft Japanese silk. I keep all my album design in-house and follow the rule: keep it simple. I normally like to incorporate a lot of white space, limit the number of images per page, and use details next to people shots to avoid competition. Leather Craftsmen, Queensberry and Cypress are my album suppliers.

Below you'll see a few sample layouts:
