Citizen Jane Book Launch

       Jane Sloane is a very dear friend of ours and we could not have been more excited about her book launch this week for "Citizen Jane." Jane is a constant inspiration and role model to us. This book is a wonderful manual for anyone interested in working towards a world of equality, and for those committed to dancing through adversity with a soul-centered, compassionate, poetic approach. You can order your very own copy here!

       Thanks Annie Wright for leading such a great conversation, and to the Global Fund for Women for hosting the wonderful event! Congratulations Jane!

Mary + David: San Francisco Couple's Photo Session at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park

       What better way to celebrate a birthday than to get whisked away from the "Big Easy" to our "City by the Bay" for a weekend getaway. When Mary mentioned one day that she wished they had more couple's photos together, David took note and surprised her with a photo session in Golden Gate Park. The afternoon was classic S.F. and picturesque. When we met them, the fog was just rolling in from Ocean Beach, and steam was rising from Stow Lake, a convergence of veils that lent the scene an air of mystery and romance. We found a rowboat for them to tuck into, and they drifted on the lake together, snuggling close together on their seat to stay warm.

       Walking along the tree-lined path at the water's edge, David explained that just like us, they love spending as much time together as they could, and enjoy working together as well. David is a cardiologist and Mary is a nurse, and they work together in the same lab. Talk about romantic! These two are such sweeties: intelligent, courageous, and kind; it's no surprise that their hearts melded in love while healing the hearts of their patients.

       We send Mary all our best wishes as she embarks on another wonderful decade of life, and are so happy to celebrate her birthday in San Francisco with these photos.

Elisa + Jaime: San Francisco Engagement Photo Session at the Ferry Building

       We love to hear how couples meet for the first time. With each story we hear, it seems that there could be no better explanation for how lovers find each other than fate. The universe seemed to align for Elisa and Jaime. After a sitcom style series of events, Elisa found herself working at the Cliff House, where she met Jaime, and found her reason for staying in San Francisco, the reason that propelled that fortunate moment of fate: love.

       We met Elisa and Jaime at the Ferry Building and took some great shots of them over the water with the historic clock tower behind them. After a stroll along the water and under the sunny spring sky, we took refuge in the cool shade of the Ferry Building. Elisa and Jaime browsed the fruit stands, playfully making goo-goo eyes with each other with orange halves, and sampled olive oil and cheese from the local vendors. 

       We're so excited for Elisa + Jaime's engagement! Congratulations love birds!
