Last week, I was in Michigan for a work conference, and all the stars aligned so that I could spend a few hours with Jill DeVries. Jill and I first met in April, when she and a group of lovely wedding photographers stayed with me in New York City. Now that I've moved to San Francisco, I'm lucky enough that the same group of women are going to be here next week :) Grand Rapids, Michigan is absolutely stunning in the fall. I was so excited to be there and especially to have a mentor session with one of my inspirations. Jill was amazing and had already planned for her roommate to model for us with her boyfriend. It was perfect. How cool is that old school gas station?! And the leaves...I die.
