We had a whirlwind of adventures with my awesome niece KJ when we stopped to visit her in San Francisco last month. I will definitely be doing a post soon about our visit there, because on this trip I had such a blast meeting new friends and absolutely fell in love with San Francisco (the city of brotherly love?.. wait that’s Philly). Anyhow, we literally drove all over town scouting for pretty locations for upcoming shoots and found about a bajillion of them! One of those places was the Legion of Honor…where we eventually decided to shoot KJ’s portrait session. So how do you match a perfect location? With the perfect dress, of course! Ty surprised us both when he pulled the cutest dress from the racks…high-five Babe! =D
Anyways, KJ’s always so busy with her new career, we wanted to give her a fun little escape…we hope you like the pictures as much as we do KJ!
It was quite chilly during the shoot but I was so glad KJ toughed it out for us, she was a breeze (no pun intended) to work with! The wind worked in our favor and gave her the perfect wind-tossed hair, not to mention beautiful movement to her dress.
When you’re with us you have to learn how to walk the walk…or at least have fun trying! KJ was a quick learner and was strutting it in no time at all. 😉
I cannot say enough about KJ and these next pictures are the reason why! Her laughs and smiles come so easily…and they’re infectious so watch out around her! =p
The setting sun provided some gorgeous sidelight for the shot below.
The pillars make me want to leave for Athens on the first plane outta here!
One of my favorites of KJ below…she just commands attention in this picture. =)
It’s always rewarding being able to photograph at a location with amazing architecture like this. I have to give a special thanks to Ty’s friend (thanks Lee!) for pointing us towards this place. While most of our photos were from the outside, here’s a little detail of what the inner quad looked like in the last photo.
Kajua, thank you so much for your hospitality. I enjoyed everything from the shopping to the crepes to you selling blankets. lol =) We cannot wait to see you again in August!
