laura + mike in san francisco

wind & water, on repeat. salty ocean air in whipped hair and get-the-shiver-out embraces. glances full of admiration, running through trees laughing. this session in san francisco at land's end was just the kind of thing i go for, jump for, get crazy and shriek a little for. the light, the fog, the ocean mist. but mostly, two wonderful people enjoying time together while i document away. seriously, these two were so into each other that the entire session was a joy.

laura and mike will be married in milwaukee this summer, but they currently reside in san francisco and they love nature ... so a session in the presidio made perfect sense. and since sf is one of my favorite cities, i was all about that, of course. good times. can't wait for the wedding.


it's crazy ... her baby will be here any day now. i remember shooting her engagement to brent (which was the first time we met) and it feels like yesterday. time has flown over the years of our client-relationship-turned-close-friendship.

she asked me how much she'd have to bribe me to take some photos of her. "nothing weird," she said. [i don't do maternity.] megan gets it; she just wanted some natural portraits to remember this time. beautiful megan. i am so happy for you, my friend.
