kirin hanging out in foster city

My friend visited me two weekends ago with his new puppy, Kirin. Kirin is a Shiba Inu and he knows many tricks (sit, laydown, rollover, bow, etc) thanks to his owner! I am most impressed with him. Isn’t he oh-so-handsome and adorbable?


christmas in the city

Yesterday night Brian and I took the bart to Union Square to do some shopping. It was insanely packed since I’m guessing most people don’t have work this week or are vacationing. It was festive as usual at Union Square with the Christmas tree, lights on the building, the ice-skating rink, and what not. I love the holidays!

And I’m going to throw the below photo into the mix because it’s too cute! I got this for Brian’s mother at the Renegade Craft Fair in the city a few weekends ago. It’s too adorable, right? It’s from the booth succ-u.

gabby + eugene engagement session II

My brother and Gabby had spotted out this abandoned building in the Presidio area. I’m not sure what the building was used for, but a police officer did come up to us and asked us what we were doing. Maybe aliens are stored here. Who knows.

The gloomy day proceeded, but we did manage to get a peak of sunshine here and there. The white was a nice backdrop for Gabby’s outfit though!

After enduring the cold for a while at the Presidio, Eugene and Gabby wanted to head somewhere warm so I suggested Mission Pie since the interior design had a cozy and cute feeling. And I knew the lighting was great in there! Besides, I wanted some chai and some delicious pie myself. Ha.

And then we moved outside for some more shots.

And since they both love photography, they thought it’d be cute to express that during our session. Also self-portraits happen a lot when it’s only them two traveling often, and there’s no one around to take a photo for them so I took a photo of them taking a photo of themselves!

They are to be wed Oct this year.
