I Love Brunch!

Brunch is definitely my favorite meal of the day! You have the option to eat dessert for breakfast, dinner for breakfast, breakfast for lunch and drink unabashedly while doing so.

I still shoot plenty of family portraits, newborns, pregnancies and weddings, since moving to Raleigh, but one of my favorite projects is food photography! I love food, dining and the comradery that goes along with experiencing an incredible meal, with people whose company you enjoy.

One of my continuous projects is managing the food photography and promotion of the incredible dishes at Midtown Grill, in North Hills. With a new chef and a new menu, there is definitely no shortage of work… and taste testing to be done!

Food Photography in Raleigh

Since moving to Raleigh, I have taken on some great food related projects – which I love – as I consider myself a little bit of a foodie. I manage all food and event photography for Midtown Grille in North Hills, including their website, ad design and social media management.  So, if you’re on Twitter or Facebook and you are a follower of Midtown Grille and are constantly barraged by mouth watering, tempting, will-power-destroying images of decadent food – well, I’m responsible for that. In addition to working for Midtown, I also volunteer my photographic skills to Ethnosh. Ethnosh is a local and growing movement that creates awareness and events around locally owned ethnic restaurants.

Shelley Lake, Raleigh

I have been in Raleigh for eight months now and I love it! In such a short amount of time I have found it to be an amazing place with so much to do, lots to explore and endless photogenic locations. I find lots of great places to explore, when I’m out with my girls and these often lead to great backdrops when I bring my clients out for a photo shoot. Once of my favorite spots to enjoy with my family and to use for family photo sessions and other photo shoots is Shelley Lake. It’s just so different from what I’m used to in California and it’s one of the first, picturesque locations I discovered. During the Spring, the white blossoms on the trees are incredible and as we shift into Summer, the greenery is overwhelming… I can’t imagine how beautiful Fall is going to be!

Catching Up

The past month has been a whirlwind! I spent two weeks in LA, shooting every single day, and returned to Raleigh to prepare for my big Bravura exhibit at Brushstroke Studio and Gallery. Below are some highlights of my vary busy and very fun time back in my home town.

I Thought Wrong

I thought that moving to an entirely new city, state, zip code… 2,500 miles away from a lifetime, that my life would slow down a bit. I was greatly mistaken. Raleigh has been incredible to our family and in addition to giving us four seasons, a home with a yard and lots of friendly people, it’s give us tremendous professional opportunities. One of my many projects, in addition taking care of my beautiful girls, my wonderful husband and our obnoxious cats, is handling the photography, social media and [under construction] website for Midtown Grille in North Hills.

Reminiscing – Lucky Me!

While I have quickly made new friends and already picked up business, in my new town, I’m wistful of the days that I had shoots scheduled weekly, if not daily. I really LOVE shooting and love getting to know new people; some of my closest friends, started out as clients! I am so lucky that my love of photography became my occupation, an occupation that afforded me the luxury and flexibility to be a stay at home mom and an occupation that connected me to the world around me. I spent so much time shooting in some of California’s most gorgeous places and while I miss the friends I made, the constant barrage of sun and the ocean air,  I am giddy and anxious make new connections, here in Raleigh!
