Lizzie's Bakery - Funfetti Cake

I had the pleasure of shooting with Liz of Lizzie's Bakery in Los Angeles. She invited me into her kitchen and let me photograph the process of making her beautiful cakes. Let's just say I definitely have a great appreciation for scalloped cakes!

Craft New York - Spring Menu

Last year, for the redesign of their new website, I worked with Crafted Hospitality to photograph their Los Angeles location in Century City. I worked with their amazing team Chef de Cuisine Andrew Gavalla, Pastry Chef Shannon Swindle and General Manager Todd Thurman. The team in LA was such a dream to work with. 

Now it was time to continue working this project on the east coast at Craft New York. Just a few weeks ago, I worked with another amazing team and am so excited to share with you the delicious food and desserts created by Chef Kyle Koenig and Pastry Chef Michal Shelkowitz. I couldn't have done this without my awesome assistant Jon Lemon. 

My go to lenses for restaurant and food projects are usually Canon 100m Macro f/2.8L and Sigma 50mm f/1.4 Art (which I am really loving!). Profoto B1 and B2 lights provided beautiful light and allowed me to work swiftly in a live restaurant.
