Behind the March Cover

The deets on each of our neighborhood covers

March Covers

It took two days of scouting plus several early call times all around the city to create three amazing covers for our 2014 Neighborhoods issue, all of which were shot by talented photographers Becca Teal-Batista and Jenny Siegwart of Found Creative Studio. Here are some details and behind-the-scenes snaps from each cover shoot:

Kensington

Kensington

5:00 pm, Monday January 20th
This was the first location shot (of 10 total). Becca and Jenny had been scouting all day and decided to knock this one out after chowing down on tacos at Ponce's across the street and waiting for the sun to set. We love seeing the painting by Artist Kelsey Brookes in Haven Pizzeria and the market lights outside of Fish Public.

South Park

South Park

6:30 am, Tuesday January 21st
Four different spots were shot in South Park. The facade of the Burlingame building paired with the beautiful sunrise made for the strongest choice. Like each neighborhood shoot, the biggest challenge was the cars. There was one white car that kept getting in the way, but we worked around it and got the photo. (I scouted this shot on a run the week before!)

Delicious Tip! We waited for Cafe Madeleine's across the street from Burlingame to open at 7:30 am and the croissants were fresh out of the oven. The BEST, ever.

Leucadia

Leucadia

8:30 am, Tuesday January 28th
I scouted this location after doing a walk-through at Solterra just down the street for an Exquisite Weddings Magazine photo shoot. The surfboards and outdoor cafe are very NOCO (aka North County). For this one, we enlisted Julie Ellis of Rais Case and her dogs (Phebe and Nala) to be in the shots. She lives nearby in Encinitas, where we first shot her back in October 2012.

If you haven't already heard, we're selling posters of all 3 covers, buy them here.
