A yummy food and product photography shoot highlighting treats for United Dairy Farmers, an Ohio-based chain of ice cream parlours and convenience stores. They serve up their own brand of ice creams, malt shakes, and coffee and needed a set of photos for use in social media campaigns. Prop styling by Grace Suh.
I had the pleasure of working with Fillmore residents, merchants and families for this campaign. You can find the banners all around the Fillmore District, just a few blocks from where I used to live. Wonderful to work with the creative minds behind anotherwise.co on this campaign.
A big thank you to my 82-year-old neighbor, Pat, for graciously hand modeling for this shoot for the food issue of East Bay Express. She's showcasing scoops from East Bay's original ice cream shops. I learned Fentons started in the 1880s!?
Thrilled to have worked on this month's cover for San Francisco magazine's Food issue! They wanted to incorporate their three food critics' favorite Bay Area dishes, with visual inspiration from 1950s cookbooks.

I created some new imagery for San Francisco Botanical Garden's annual Garden Feast, featured on their invitations and printed materials. Myself and art director, Valerie Shagday, have been able to collaborate on this project for the past two years. We start with a morning foraging hunt with an SFBG gardener to collect approved materials, then hustle back to the studio to start pushing petals. It's a weirdly exciting process --we can't be certain what direction the collage will go since our available ingredients depend on many factors, and we're working against the clock with organic material, but the client gives us lots of creative freedom and I'm always delighted with the results.
From a recent e-commerce shoot with one of my fav clients Kris Nations Jewelry. I usually work with them on seasonal lookbooks, but this time they wanted a clean and timeless look focusing on images for their web shop. We shot about a hundred of their classic best-selling earrings, necklaces and bracelets. It was a great team of ladies working with founders/sisters Kim and Kris, stylist Liz Baca, hair and makeup artist Victoria Boggiano and Sophia Jackson from Scout Models.
