I couldn’t be happier about my new collaboration with wardrobe stylist Annie Cavallo and hair & makeup artist Mel Paladino! We invited a great group of kids over to the Dobbin Mews for an afternoon of ballet, gymnastics, pouts and smirks…and chocolate cupcakes of course.

Healthy One-Pan Meals for Fitness

One dish meals March 2014 Fitness Magazine: salmon, beef and bok choy
On the subject of weeknight meals I say: the less clean-up the better. And the cleaner the food, the better (cook at home!) That’s why I’m so into Fitness‘ March food feature which shares great recipes for one-pan meals. I mean, how else do you fit your workout, your work day AND a home-cooked meal in? I also love how up-close and personal they let me get with the food–so much fun! Food and prop styling by Adrienne Anderson.

New Year, New Work

Lemon still life, lemon meringue pie

Personally, I didn’t eat enough sweets over the holiday. (I’m serious!) But that’s okay since it inspired an update of the Sweet section of my site! Happy New Year and winter citrus! Thanks to Kira Corbin and Chelsea Zimmer for styling the above images.

New Work in Tiny Atlas Quarterly

Crab apple Tiny Atlas Quarterly
I’m so excited to share the most recent collaboration with my friend, floral designer Nicolette Camille! We spent a couple of gorgeous days this fall working on a foraged arrangements story for Tiny Atlas Quarterly. This meant driving around the Catskills with one eye to the side of the road in search of seed pods and grape vines, making friends with an apple grower, and admiring the changing leaves against the blue sky. So dreamy.

Tiny Atlas is an online (and soon to be in print) travel magazine started by photographer Emily Nathan. It’s full of images by photographers who shoot travel for a living and want to show people the frames that’d never make it into the mainstream glossy print pub, to invite readers to play in our own back yards, and to share resources and ideas for the kinds of trips we like to take and have taken. In this Solstice 2013 issue, I’m happy to be in very good company with contributors like Amanda Marsalis, Shelly Strazis, Thayer Gowdy and Erin Kunkel (just to name a few). Please check out the story for a conversation with and lots of great tips from Nicolette! See more…

Made in the South Awards

Made in the South Awards
It’s official! The winners of Garden & Gun Magazine’s Made in the South Awards have been announced today. I had the inside scoop from the two days we spent shooting the selected product in Charleston. And of course, it was a scoop that was my favorite of the bunch. The Bay Laurel ice cream from Southern Craft Creamery (who snagged the opening spread, below) was floral, creamy-yet-light and darn addictive. Pick up the latest issue when you’re in the airport next week for more amazing craftsmanship in categories from Food and Drink to Style and Design. The judges are true experts like James Beard award winner Frank Stitt and interior designer Barrie Benson. Holiday parties and gifting here we come! See more…
