SAN FRANCISCO

Oct 6, 2015 // LIFESTYLE, PHOTO

This past February I escaped the blowing snow of Michigan for the warm sun of the Golden Coast. This was my first visit to California and I honestly think I fell for the West Coast life. Everything seemed so laid-back and easygoing. What shocked me most was that people actually waited at a crosswalk if it said “don’t walk” – a far cry from the midwesterner’s hurry to cross the street. Seriously though, I couldn’t get over this!

As an added bonus, I was able to explore the great city of San Francisco with my oldest brother. Tasting the brews of many a local coffee shop, biking the Golden Gate, taking in the sunrise from the pier, and enjoying a (post) sunset picnic on the ocean together – yeah this is what vacation is supposed to be.

I’m pretty much decided that this is a necessary trip to repeat in the coming year.

Seeing the Mrs. Doubtfire house was one of the few items on my list of ‘have-to’ see places in San Francisco. I was pretty much raised with that movie. So glad I made it!

OTTO

Aug 5, 2015 // LIFESTYLE, PHOTO, PORTRAIT

I’m an uncle. It’s amazing to see my brother become a father, and my sister-in-law become a mother. The love they have for this new little guy is a beautiful thing to witness. I was privileged enough to spend a long weekend with this small family in South Philly and took advantage of my time to capture these fleeting moments of Otto’s infant days. I can’t wait to watch him grow and continue to see my brother and sister develop as parents. Love this little guy!
