The Adventuress

Does this look like the kind of girl who just got her Arctic Ocean Polar Bear Ice Swimming Certificate?

too pretty to be real?

Well, she did.

Meet Kristin, the most beautiful and charming professional travel writer ever. When she's not running marathons, camping in the Sahara or dodging icebergs, she calls San Francisco her home. I am so glad I had the opportunity to meet Kristin through my photography project: she's someone I'm definitely going to love getting to know. For those of you who are armchair travelers and suffer from frequent bouts of wanderlust (like myself), you'll want to bookmark Kristin's travel blog, Camels and Chocolate, for regular infusions of wonderful travel stories, writing and insights.

The girl is truly an inspiration on many levels.

UPDATE 11:34am: Wow. Here's Kristin's post about our photo shoot day. It's way better reading than mine!


You can read more about Kristin on i live here: SF.

ps.: Yes, she really does have a Polar Bear Ice Swimming Certificate.

pss.: This particular photo was taken in the window of Tedda Hughes, who graciously let us frolic in her boutique. You'll be hearing more about Tedda as that is the location for my photography show coming up at the end of the month!
