Teresa O'Brien Photography bio picture
  • Hello + Welcome!

    I call hilly San Francisco home with my husband and wild child. I like wild, so I'd have it no other way. When I am not with my boys, I love to be out capturing life - people - in a fun and real way. It is work, but I get to laugh, play, cheer, and get excited … a lot.

    Thanks for stopping by to visit my journal! Please make sure to leave a comment because I'd love to hear from you. It definitely makes my day.

    Hope we connect some day soon!

Chúc mừng năm mới! Gung Hay Fat Choy! Happy New Year! | San Francisco Bay Portrait Photographer

When I married a Vietnamese, it didn’t cross my mind the unexpected bonus I would receive every year.  No, not as in red envelopes, but the bonus of a second new year!  So I have a second chance for all those new year resolutions that I was thinking about but have not yet attempted or already dropped.  How great is that?!  It gives me a chance to re-evaluate and hone on what is realistic versus what is idealistic.  I LOVE the newness of January and all the fresh ideas it brings.

I haven’t done a personal post in awhile, so I’ve included some photos from our new year’s weekend, highlighting our little Ian of course.  We took advantage of the long weekend to have a quiet retreat in the Napa mountains.  We were married here, Mont La Salle, and so it holds a special place in our hearts.  We make sure to visit here at least twice a year as it offers a much needed tranquil and peaceful escape from our everyday busy lives.
