Andrew and Shelby's engagement session started out in their own home, which is our favorite way to start a portrait session. He got to meet their extremely relaxed kitty, listen to Andrew play some tunes for Shelby on his guitar and then fit in a game of Smash Brother's on their Nintendo. Andrew even had to blow dust out of the cartridge slot, which brought memories of my youth screaming back. I remember sitting there blowing until I was light-headed just to play some Contra. I am so glad we don't have to blow on our usb cables every time we connect something.
Afterwards, Jerry took them on a little urban safari and explored beautiful Lake Merritt, which is one of our favorite spots in town. Enjoy!
