Thom and I had the unbelievable opportunity to have our photos taken by our amazing roommate, Kristina, this past warm weekend.
Being a photographer, I am CONSTANTLY aware of the light. I wanted to have a shoot somewhere that expressed warmth and love. Thom wanted somewhere less hectic but I still wanted some place that gave hints of a city, not too far away. So, with that in mind we went out to Land's End/Sutro Baths area on the West end of the city. After a few weeks of cold and rainy weather, we were super fortunate to get blue skies and nice light.
I should also mention that my roommate is super woman. Because I can't believe how great the images are. Seriously. Thom and I have been together for four years and I can't find or think of one serious photo of us together that gives such a great representation of us. She also was able to give me these edits today so that I can send a few out to friends and family!
And even though we ventured out for a more secluded setting, we ended up have quite an audience. There were curious onlookers and copy-cat posers. I guess I'm a bit more used to it than Thom, since I take self-portraits a lot. But I think what I enjoy the most about these photos is that we give in to our personal discomforts and just went with it. Laughed. Had fun. :)
Thank you ever so much again Kristina. (Please check out my wonderful roommates work here!)
