During Christine’s last visit to SF, Ally and I took her to Kirby Cove for some fun shoot at the beach and famous swing. It was slightly chilly/windy that day, but we managed to make it work. Hope you enjoyed the shots!

Adventures with Ally: La Mar Peruvian

Adventures with Ally: La Mar Peruvian

I’ve been to a couple of Peruvian restaurants in San Francisco like Frescas and Limon Rotisserie, so I kind of had some expectations coming in to La Mar┬áCebicheria Peruana. But I was wrong. I was blown away dish after dish starting with the fried plantains

Here’s a fun music festival themed shoot I did with Ally @FashionbyAlly by the Sutro Baths in San Francisco. Her dress is from BooHoo and flower crown (it also lights up at night!) from SoCalbySteph. There were so many tourists in this area who got to see this flower child in action. Did we mention it was pretty windy that day? But we managed. Thanks, crazy San Francisco weather!

Adventures with Ally: Le Marais Bakery

Adventures with Ally: Le Marais Bakery

One day, Ally (aka @fashionbyally) texted me and asked if I wanted to go to Le Marais Bakery in Ghirardelli Square. I’ve never heard of it, but I’m always down to eat yummy food and take photos of pretty pastries. I had no idea that 

Lemonade SF Opening Party

I was super excited to find out that the LA-based restaurant chain Lemonade was finally opening their first store in San Francisco! Even better was that it is located in my favorite shooting / hangout spot in Yerba Buena Gardens / Metreon area! I went 

Adventures with Ally: Sand Bar

Adventures with Ally: Sand Bar

One of the coolest (and most unreal) places I’ve ever been to is Kaneohe Bay Sandbar in Hawaii. It is a patch of sand in the middle of the Pacific Ocean! I’m still boggled at the idea of a sandy beach in the middle of an ocean, where you could actually feel the difference between the deep end and shallow end right away (I learned the hard way). Not many people have been there, mostly because you have to know someone who has a boat or can charter one. Ally Chen‘s sister just happened to have some really cool friends (aka Lee) that could charter a pontoon boat from the┬áMarines Base in Kaneohe Bay. We were blessed with beautiful weather that turned the sea into turquoise and sea foam colors. During the high tide, the water was right around our knees, but towards the end of the day, it was literally below our ankles. It’s such a beautiful place – I highly suggest that you make a trek there someday!

Ally’s excited! And no, she’s not allowed to drive! LOLAlly Showpo Blue Romper Sand Bar FashionByAlly-8697Ally Showpo Blue Romper Sand Bar FashionByAlly-8819

Adventures with Ally: Lanikai

Adventures with Ally: Lanikai

With so many beaches to choose from, we decided to go to Jenny and Coby’s favorite beach – Lanikai Beach in Kailua. Lanikai means “heavenly sea” and is ranked amongst the best beaches in the world (I looked this up lol). Before we hit the
