“All in the Family…”
When I first met Diana, she was working on opening up her own State Farm Insurance office. She was also pregnant. I was amazed at her drive and energy, it was contagious! And I first got the opportunity to photograph her and Francisco for their parents-to-be photos. Then, she needed headshots. And newborn photos. Baptism. New Family and Save-the-date cards for their church and family wedding celebration. And I was lucky enough to be part of all of those beautiful, love-filled life moments right along with them. (Stay tuned for their June wedding photos!)
It was a crisp, unseasonably warm day when I met Anna + Eric for their Chicago engagement session in Millennium Park. The Fall colors were gorgeous, and they were so sweet together!
“Bee-utiful Food Photography!”
I love photography, I’m very lucky to love what I do for a living. And, if you know me personally or follow my personal life on social media, you know I also love food! I love everything about it: cooking, eating out, trying new things…and I especially like food photography. There’s something very satisfying to me to make food that tastes good look delicious, too. And when my passions collide, like they did on this Asheville Bee Charmer Cookbook project – it’s a win-win!
So, how did I get so lucky?! I met Chef Carrie Schloss while doing food photography on another cookbook (The Essential Dehydrator) with Chef Jill Houk (who I also worked with on these delectables!). (more…)
