Venetian Food

Never got around to blogging this but after our trip to Venice last year I met up with some friends back in the studio to shoot some Venetian styled food – who doesn’t love some good Italian seafood and pasta!?

Southwest Airlines Magazine – Dec. Cover and Feature

Had a blast shooting the cover and feature for the December issue of Southwest Airlines magazine – super cool story on botanicals and cocktails featuring a group of botanists who have used their love and knowledge of botanicals to make bitters! We got to shoot them at the New York Botanical Gardens where they were all working on their PhDs together before starting their bitters company and then we came back to B’ham to do the studio work. Couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out—check it out in seatbacks on Southwest flights now!

Dixie Fresh – Baby Food

Loved working on this shoot with Dixie Fresh for their new line of frozen baby foods – perfecting timing as we shot right when I had a new baby at home!

Had a rare moment for some testing with one of my favorite food stylists, Nathan Carrabba, in town recently and we put together a fun dessert spread with some delicious baked goods…try not to lick the screen!
