Andre Leffall ( is a real estate professional based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I had the pleasure of photographing him at the Legion of Honor in San Francisco last summer.

I met Andre through his husband Kevin. Kevin worked with my husband at Children's Hospital Oakland. Each time Darren and I had dinner with Kevin and Andre, I was always amused by the same look that fell over Kevin and Darren's faces each time Andre and I would talk about the Oakland A's, or insisting on taking a picture of our meal: the look of strained patience. I know that the phrase "strained patience" is a bit of an oxymoron, but that's really the best way to describe it.
