Summer Berry Picking

Although I’m a bit late posting this from the June issue of Parents, I’m just in time for berry season! I photographed this story last summer on a 90+ degree day and right up to the very moment of torrential rain and tornado warnings. Fun and crazy. And so beautiful!

In the Last Weeks of Spring

We made beautiful photographs, celebrated a few birthdays (3, 43, and 83!), and ate some delicious spring foods. Mariana created recipes for leg of lamb, grilled favas, spring vegetable soup […]

They were shot with a Polaroid Land […]

Lucky, lucky me! I just spent ten days in places that were cool at night and offered me plenty of just-caught seafood and farm-fresh veg. I love my job. And I love you too Brooklyn, but being away in the summertime is just so so good.

Jamie Magazine (yes, Jamie Oliver’s magazine, published in the UK but available here in the US!) sent me to Miami to shoot a city guide and document the South Beach Food + Wine Festival. Though I never got to meet the man himself, I did get to hear some Q&A with Anthony Bourdain and discover […]
