Big Sur 2015

Last weekend we camped in Big Sur, like we've been doing every year since we moved to California. This time we camped in Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park and checked out that specific area of Big Sur. Here are some photos from the weekend. Enjoy!

Photographing butterflies is just plain fun. They are so colorful and graceful, it's impossible not to love them. Here are a few photos of butterflies from a recent visit to the California Academy of Sciences Biodome.

Forest Fog

We spent the last weekend at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. On our (very early) morning we drove up the mountains and were delighted to see the mountain forests covered by a blanket of fog. It was so magical!

Here are some of my favorite photos from the mountain fog. It was really hard to choose the best because I really LOVED them all!

Clancy's Pumpkin Patch 2015

This year, we went back to Clancy's Pumpkin Patch with Hugo to pick out some pumpkins, go on a tractor ride and (for me) to photograph the lovely pumpkins. The visit was a complete success and we came back home with lots of pumpkins, a happy kiddo and lots of cool photos! Here are some pictures from the visit.

Tilden Park Little Farm

This past weekend, we took Hugo to Tilden Park's Little Farm to see some animals. Our first plan was to drive to Petaluma for some apple picking but, because of some time constraints, we ended up driving to Berkeley instead and visiting the farm. The reality is that I mostly wanted to go somewhere where it felt like autumn because there's not much of that happening here in San Francisco.

Tilden Park was such a fun choice, not just for children, but we also had a great time! I can't wait to go back and do some hiking and checking more areas of the park!

Enjoy the photos. For more fun photos, visit my Etsy store or check out my website.

Walking around Budapest, Hungary

Budapest was by far my favorite city to photograph during our trip to Central Europe. The city in itself is absolutely gorgeous and filled with beautiful details everywhere. Budapest has charm, history, elegance and a very strong bohemian vibe. It is definitely a lively city and I fell in love with it from the moment we set foot on Keleti train station. 

Here are just some photos of our time in Budapest. For more fun photos, visit my website or stop by my Etsy store.

Surfing in Pacifica, California

This past weekend we went to Pacifica, California for a morning of surfing (for the husband) and a stroll through the hills and neighborhood for me. I wanted to follow the Pacific trail but couldn't quite follow the trail well enough and I ended up exploring the town of Pacifica instead. I found a cool house on a tree and a great overlook from where to photograph all the surfers that showed up to the beach that day!

Tilt Shift on a Boat on the San Francisco Bay

Last week was my birthday and, to celebrate, we took a trip to Angel Island to go hiking. But, before that, my husband surprised me with a cool camera lens that creates an awesome blurred effect, like a tilt-shift lens. It was so exciting to get a new lens, so I took it with me and managed to get some good photos from the boat and from the hike using it. As mentioned in the website, it takes a lot of practice to learn how to get your perfect shot with this lens, but I think I did okay for it being my first time!

Moments in Black and White

These are some photos I took during our trip to Central Europe. These are photos I took quickly, trying to capture the moment. I love all of them and how they transport me to the places where I took them!

Farm Life in Salinas, CA

A few weeks ago, we spent a weekend in Salinas, California at a farm. We chose this area because of its easy access to Monterey, where we were planning on visiting the famous aquarium. Our stay at the farm was very fun and I got the chance of photographing farm life, which is not something that happens everyday when you life in a big city like San Francisco.

Here are some fun photos from our stay. For more fun photos, visit my Etsy store or check out my website.
