Fat Witches Bakery in Chelsea Market

It’s always a good day when I get to start out photographing and smelling brownies all morning. Yum! I headed in to Chelsea Market to photograph Patricia of Fat Witches Bakery.

I love the polka dotted packaging on these brownies

Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center in Brooklyn

I visited the Ger-Nis Culinary & Herb Center in Brooklyn last week for the upcoming CRAVE book. They specialize in cooking and educational classes for adults and kids; check them out!

I loved the look of the kitchen: so bright and welcoming

Her dog, Sadie, was following us around during part of the shoot, so I figured she needed her time in the spotlight as well.

Yvette Rose of Joulebody

I spent the morning with Yvette of Joulebody, a yoga, fitness, and nutrition company, to prepare for her page in the upcoming CRAVE book.

One of her services is the Kickstart Diet, a cleansing program she developed. She let me sample some of the products once we were finished, and they were wonderful!

Purely Elizabeth

I had a pleasure of working with Elizabeth of Purely Elizabeth, maker of natural and gluten free pancake and muffin mixes. Elizabeth will be featured in the upcoming CRAVE NYC book. I was lucky to be able to sample her ultimate cacao muffin; I loved it!

mmmm… muffins!

Paris

So over the summer I took a great trip to Europe to visit some friends… and I’m finally getting around to dealing with the photos.
Here are the Paris ones! I visited my friend Karl who had just moved to Paris the year prior.

Couldn’t resist taking some sort of Eiffel Tower one

One of my favorite outings: the Catacombs. There are signs all over saying to not use flash at all (which people ignored…), but my little video lights came in handy!

How could I resist putting Karl in a shot?

A little fun with a carousel

I loved the decorations of this restaurant

Cheese fondue was a must!

Mmmm… creme brulee

An afternoon with the Roths

I’ve been going through various hard drives this week and came upon some photos I took at my friend Ron’s parents’ house last summer. I took more close-ups of the food than anything else.
