While I was in San Francisco last month, I met up with Kat who makes lovely jewelryÂ (she is wearing her own necklaces in these images) and works for Rue MagazineÂ Â and did some new head shots since she cut off all of her hair - and looks fabulous.
While I was in San Francisco I stopped in to meet kate and see her soon to be new storefront to take some photographs of her and her Father working together to renovate the place. If you aren't familiar with Kate Ellen and her wonderful Jewelry, please take a look at her websiteÂ hereÂ - I have a pair of her earrings and since getting them, there really hasn't been a day where I didn't wear them. If you live in the Bay Area, come November check out the new store in Old Oakland on 9th and Washington.
While I was in San Francisco I was asked to go to Edna Brewer Middle School and take photographs of the wonderful after school programs. My dear friend Meg works here so it was so nice to see what she does everyday and to get a change to meet this kids that she works with. I have never seen an after school program quite like this one, there was skateboarding, arts and crafts, hip hop dance class and a place to get homework done. It was by far my favorite project I did while I was there, it was such a great way to spend an afternoon and the kids were wonderful to hang out with.
