Leslie and Sophia… and Andy Warhol

Last week I got this email:

Good afternoon Paige,

I recently moved to the city with my 3 year old daughter and we would like to capture our love for life, SF and each other. We live near Baker Beach and spend hours there each week so the sand, ocean and bridge are symbols of our life. I have browsed your site and I’m all in! Are you available and taking on new clients? I look forward to your reply, Leslie

I said, “Yes, please! I would never pass up a day at the beach and I am always accepting new clients.”

So we made a date and in her final email she said,“You will go bizerk over my 3.5 year old daughter…Stunning and a personality that lights up the world.”

She was so right.

I did go bizerk over her daughter. And the love they have for each other and for life is contagious.

What she didn’t tell me is that her daughter goes bizerk over her impersonation of Andy Warhol…

It was hilarious.

And informative…

I had no idea that Andy Warhol had so many cats and that they were all named Sam.

But Sophia did and it made her laugh every time.

Thank you Leslie and Sophia… it was a pleasure to meet you and document your lovely SF life.

And thank you Andy Warhol for being so amazingly funny to a 3.5 year old.
