A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away (okay, it was a Cole Valley coffee shop in August), we met an enterprising photographer who wanted to start her own photoblog. Her name was Genevieve Shiffrar, and she recently wrote us to let us know that her site was now open for business.

After taking a look, we realized that this was not the work of just any amateur. She definitely has a great eye for abstract details, composition and color. And Genevieve is definitely open to letting folks purchase prints or high quality files, and would be happy to shoot your portrait or event. Her site includes a contact email if you're interested. A browse through the archives should be all the convincing you'll need. SFist is looking forward to visiting her site regularly for new photos and inspiration.
