My good friend Nina asked if I would document her birthday with some of her best friends at the Mark Hopkins in San Francisco. Of course I agreed, and we spent the afternoon drinking bubbly and taking some pretty gorgeous shots (if I do say so myself). I think it is great to capture moments in life other than just the "big" moments. Nina kept saying "some day when I am old and wrinkly, I will be showing these to my grandkids". And you know what? I think that is pretty amazing - and a great privilege to capture.
