Sometimes you just need to shoot without thinking too much. Danielle and I wanted to work together again since doing the natural shoot in a Redwood Forest a couple of months ago. We met up a couple of weeks ago to decide on an idea, and this shoot came together SUPER quickly. We actually planned very little and were still texting each other the night before with ideas about what to wear! So to be honest, I wasn’t entirely sure how it would all work out….

A wonderful friend of mine offered to let us use her rooftop in San Francisco for the shoot. This place is AMAZING. It’s right next to Twin Peaks so you get a fantastic view of the city from the roof. Or so we thought. The one thing we had forgot to check was if the fog was planning on rolling in! ‘Karl’ the fog made a not-so-nice appearance right before we started shooting, and brought with him incredible winds and an icy chill. But after driving an hour and a half in rush hour traffic we just couldn’t give up the opportunity to shoot here. Besides, models are used to working in all conditions, right?! The entire shoot went like this: 30 seconds frantically shooting, 5 minutes warm up in the stairwell and repeat! Our last shoot had a lot of close up portraits and classic poses, so I wanted to mix it up a bit for this session. And it works! And Danielle doesn’t look cold! Win-win all around.

Thanks to Danielle for braving the cold in a dress, to Tiffany & Shane for letting us borrow your roof, and to Connor for making sure we didn’t get locked out there :)
