Breakfast sandwich feature for Oakland Magazine, out now!
A couple of weeks ago I spent a day working with Irene Audet, owner of NinaLereau.com photographing her beautiful aprons. I never knew there was such a thing as luxury aprons but this is it: hand-crafted, triple layered, organic, and made in the USA. Perfect for the serious chef (home or restaurant) and just in time for Christmas. NinaLereau.com
Kids love gelatin: the sugary bright colored jigglyness is fun to eat. Natalie Bouey is a mom who wanted to give her kids their favorite treat but to make it more healthy. She’s about to launch her company Rainbow Snacks, a big brand alternative that’s made with only natural colors and flavors and 25% less sugar with vitamin C, and fiber too. And what a fun job for me –an excuse to play.
I love to photo cocktails (and drink them) and I’ve been lately I’ve been doing both for Oakland Magazine’s cocktail column. In every issue the writer finds a delicious drink and gets the recipe from the bartender. I also photo cocktails for Oakland Magazine restaurant reviews too. Between the two, I thought I’d share some favorites…
Of all the cocktails photographed here my favorite was the Pimm’s Cup. It’s made from Pimm’s No. 1, a spirit from Great Britain. You can get a recipe from www.foodandwine.com, but it’s so dangerously easy why even bother. Just mix Pimm’s with ginger ale or lemon-lime soda one to one. Add fruit— apples, oranges, cucumber, mint and ice and you’ve got a great way to end the day. Or, for the best version, stop by East End Restaurant and Bar in Alameda.
Check out the recipe for the Featherweight from Oakland Magazine here. It’s perfect for a summer evening.
It was so windy last Friday when I worked on a fashion shoot with Diana Dukanovic that I’m surprised we didn’t get blown away. What a beautiful line of clothing and jewelry and what a great model. Diana’s website is being designed right now by Revolution Media Group, as soon as it’s up the link will be right here
Anderson Valley is a three-hour trip from San Francisco and is known more for its rugged beauty and as a “pot growing paradise”. Who knew it is the new spot for pinot noir? I went out there recently for the Wall Street Journal and photographed rising stars in the pinot world: Jason and Molly Drew of Drew Family Cellars and Wells Guthrie of Copain Wines. I’m excited to return soon to photograph Jason Drew’s 26 acre vineyard in May.
About a month ago I worked on a shoot for Green Beans Coffee, a company you may not know unless you happen to be stationed on a far away base in a dangerous land. Then you know them well as a cafe to relax at and get a taste of home and as a company that dedicates part of its profits to giving back to those who serve.
Now they are bringing their high quality coffee and food to the rest of us! I worked with amazing food stylist Randy Mon and we spent several days photographing their delicious sandwiches, soups, salads and pastries. I spent another day photographing their roasting facility. I loved the old world vibe! What a great company and what a great project! Here are a few favorites…
