I had the amazing opportunity to team up with Ginny Branch to shoot the beautifully styled food of Sun In My Belly’s Alison Leuker for the Dr Jart+ blog column Beauty from the Inside Out. See the story here, which features more photos from the day and their corresponding recipes.

One of my favorite shoots from last year… Ross and Rebecca hired me to take family portraits on their farm, Many Fold Farm, last Fall. They are farmers whose lambs are born and raised there, where they have eaten nothing but mother’s milk and fresh green grass (fertilized by chickens, not chemicals) their whole lives. Their story of their journey is incredible; to have been able to spend a day with them doing the chores, meeting their dogs (or guardians, really, who live among the sheep and protect the livestock) and witnessesing their love of farming was such a gift. I hope to go back in a few months to photograph their cheese-making process, which in itself is an art form. Currently, it is lambing season, and just last week six baby lambs were born. You should visit if you get the chance.
One of the perks of the job… taking home the extras from the shoot.
