5.12.11 Pic theme: Katrina+Jay; or a couples walk through Philadelphia

Neither Katrina nor Jay are from Philadelphia, but they met and fell in love here and so it was appropriate that we toured some of the city's most recognizable landmarks to capture these lovely images.

5.11.11 pic theme: Krissy+Neal engagement photos. Old City Philadelphia

These are the kind of shoots I think of when I think how much I love my job. Beautiful day, fun backgrounds, and a GREAT couple. Krissy and Neal are getting married at the Mask & Wig Club this fall and for me the date can't get here soon enough!

5.9.11 pic theme: Leo, or how to avoid working on what you are supposed to be doing!

When I first adopted Leo as a kitten he already had his full orange mane and the name came to me instantly, so why I waited 5+ years to get him groomed like this I have no idea! 



Ok, now back to working on paying customers pictures!

Pic post: Photos from a Seder recipe shoot for Nina Planck, author of Real Food: What to Eat and Why.

Worlds collide! 
Many of you that know me know I've been in the service industry in one capacity or another since the age of 13 and some may even know that for a short time I thought of going to culinary school. Thanks to the kind interest of one C.I.A. (Culinary Institute of America) grad, I got the chance to prep in a working kitchen, and even cook once (on a Friday night no less) and discovered that cooking for a living wasn't for me. Cooking for pleasure is a totally different matter, however, and I am truly blessed to be marrying a woman that is equally as passionate (if not more so) about real food with ingredients anyone can pronounce and sourcing as much of it as possible locally.

So when Michele Pulaski, chef/owner of DiSH Catering (and our caterer), referred me to Nina Planck author of Real Food: What to Eat and Why I was obviously beside myself with excitement. Below are a few of my favorite images of the Seder dinner recipe shoot.

Don't you want a bowl right about now?

Thanks to Nina and Michele both. I can't wait to do more soon!
