I wanted to bring back this oldie but goodie of an image. Red Wine Poached Pears. This was one of my favorite shoots ever, and I think it’s high time we brought it back.

Glittery Picture It all started with a little sparkle. And then the fire spread. I’ll admit it: I’m a sucker for a glittery picture. And… I’ve never tried sushi before.

I like being able to give my readers photographs of chocolate that are both beautiful and scrumptious. I also want to show them what it takes for me to pull off all that magic, so they can see how I shot this cocoalicious image. The process of creating this picture session, from conception to conclusion, […]

This post is about the photoshoot for Poirot’s Coffee and Creme Puffs, a mock coffee shop I imagined in my head. We used Hercule Poirot as an inspiration for this coffee and crepe photoshoot. Hercule Poirot is the main character of a British series by Agatha Christie. He’s a Belgian detective who solves mysteries and […]

Behind the scenes of my most recent photoshoot featuring macaroons, cannoli’s, and champagne. I love champagne. And macaroons? Forget it. I could eat those all day, every day. Cannoli’s?
