Sports Fitness Fashion Shoot – from a top san francisco lifestyle fashion and sports fitness fashion photographer

This is it! It feels like flying. The first step you take really is so invigorating I just had to create and entire shoot around the feeling of running.

This shoot took place just off of Fulton Street in San Francisco inside the trails of Golden Gate Park close to one of my favourite caf├ęs Velo Rouge. Believe it or not there are loads of trails all along the perimeter and throughout the park to glide through and forget that you’re in a city. I really wanted this shoot to feel like you were in a forest following a runner on her daily run.

Kristel my model is a well experienced runner. She frequently runs up and down the hills of Oakland and Marin. She runs several marathons a year and even ran the highly regarded Boston Marathon. If you don’t know that marathon is no easy thing to get into. You need to run a previous marathon in a fast enough time to qualify as well as beat out other people in your age category to be able to get in.

I also wanted to incorporate stretching into this piece as it is such an important part of running. In fact I believe it is just as important as the run, otherwise without it you can sustain some pretty nasty and nagging injuries. It’s not worth it, just stretch. I loved the colors that Kristel wore as she stood out from her surroundings as she flew through the trails.

The running community of San Francisco is so close to my heart I just love doing running shoots. Thank you Kristel for being a part of this shoot it was such a great experience!

New lifestyle fashion work – from a top san francisco lifestyle fashion and sports fitness fashion photographer

I was so happy to work with Jenn Bonnett for my lifestyle fashion photography shoot.

I’ve been pining over doing a shoot in the Lands End area of San Francisco for years and finally found the right stylist to work with me on it. Jenn and I spent many an hour brainstorming concepts and coming up ways to have the shoot look effortless and fun.

I think we really succeeded on this one as all the elements came together. We had fantastic models, great weather, and gorgeous scenery. If you’ve never been to Lands End, it literally is the Lands End. There is no more San Francisco at this point. It sits atop steep cliffs and never ending stair cases with epic views of the beach, the ocean and the Marin Headlands. In San Francisco on a clear warm day, it doesn’t get much better than this. Our models came from both Scout and Stars and proved to be great choices. Our hair and make up artist was Tacha Scott Santana owner of Dream Girl Make Up Institute. Tacha always does an amazing job and I could not be happier with the work she does.

When putting together a shoot with multiple models it’s really important that the girls match. This can be pretty challenging as they not only need to match height wise photographically, but they also need to be able to instantly connect so that they portray that they are friends. Lucky for us we keep a pretty light atmosphere on set and everyone became fast friends. I wish I could do this shoot over again except without the camera so that I could hang out and enjoy the beautiful sunset at the end of the day.

Thank you ladies for an amazing photoshoot. I couldn’t have done it without this amazing team that I get to work with!
