Photo by Sherese Elsey

I am a San Francisco-based fine art portrait photographer with a passion for timeless, simple photos. 

With a background in design and the fine arts, I find inspiration in baroque lighting, foggy mornings, winter light, bare skin, and honest eyes. In my work I aim to capture the unique character of each subject -- when someone sees your portrait, they should feel like they have met you.
