Before and After

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a sucker for good design. I live for my monthly Living Etc and Dwell mags. I usually go for the modern aesthetic,  but I love a hint of the old and pieces that add character. I love to photograph pretty things, if you couldn’t already tell… and my rep, Jacqueline says that my photos are ‘the best version of real life’. Now, I know this is just a bathroom (MY bathroom!), but to me this is the best version of what it could be. It makes me happy, and that is what design should be. happiness.

Summertime in the winter

Yummy summery recipes from the May/June 2010 issue of Weight Watchers mag! Funny to think that I shot them one day before the biggest snowstorm of the winter. Kudos to Anna Elisa de Castro, our food stylist, for finding such amazing looking strawberries in the middle of winter and making all of the food look delicious!

The whole picture

I find that the photo industry loves to categorize photographers into specialties. If you do food well, does that mean that you can’t do portraits or interiors, kids photos, etc., just as well? I think that what’s most important is having a style that photo editors and art buyers can recognize as being your own. Los Angeles based Tia’s Bakery hired me to do it all: food, packaging AND portraits and I couldn’t be happier!

Live Simply

Some new work I did for Tees For Change, an inspirational apparel company dedicated to spreading positivity, making a difference and giving back. For every tee they sell they plant a tree!
