Soapology in the West Village

I loved the feel of the West Village store, Soapology: warm, cozy, and so many great smells! I was shooting the owner, Francine, and details of the store for her pages in the upcoming CRAVE book.

The first thing she showed me was the car they have parked right out front: loved it!

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

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!

A Greenwich Village engagement session with Rachel and Jason

It was a beautiful day for strolling around Greenwich Village with Rachel and Jason. Super cute and very affectionate, they were so much fun to photograph!

We started out at the famous Gay Street, which is super adorable and reminded me of European streets.
