I know you are wondering how to pronounce my name, so let's get that out of the way! Yi is pronounced ee as in see and qian is simply chen (ee - chen). Hope this helps clear up the confusion!

I'm a San Francisco based photographer with a passion for documenting honest and artful imagery for the adventurous at heart.

Along with our boys Will and Luca, my husband Jeremiah and I call this city by the bay home. 

Growing up, my dad created many photo ops on weekend adventures with me, so I learned to explore with him from early on. Naturally, wandering and taking pictures  got in my blood, but it wasn't until I had kids of my own that I started to practice and appreciate this form of storytelling.

My hope for our session is that you come away with an experience, a memory, and the photos you receive serve as a reminder of the authentic moments you shared together.
