A year of flowers. It’s the little things that make a difference

A year of flowers. It’s the little things that make a difference

October 12, 2016 |  Category:   photography the biz

Last week, our 2017 calendars went on sale (available on our site and on Etsy) and this year's calendar is a departure from our usual food and NYC calendars. We've been playing with flowers all year – in our food, in sketches and watercolors, and also in collages (three from the series I did this summer are below). It only seemed fitting to do a floral calendar this year and it's always nice to change things up. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed putting this year's calendar together. When my start up tech job ended earlier this year, we had to go back to being on a strict budget now that I was… CONTINUE READING

2016 Year in Food and NY Calender

2016 Year in Food and NY Calender

October 20, 2015 |  Category:   life photography the biz

UPDATE: The NY Calendar is now available in the shop. Is it calendar time already? Apparently, yes! I have to admit, I get anxious around Labor Day when I start seeing calendars in shop windows and all over my social media channels. I don't think I'll ever get it together to release my calendars that early, but the Year in Food Calendar is now in the shop. Now if we can slow time a little bit... … CONTINUE READING

Stillness

Stillness

January 30, 2015 |  Category:   favorite posts life photography

Sometimes it’s hard to motivate out of the house when it looks like a blizzard is happening and it’s warm and cozy inside, but the pull to see the snow is pretty strong. I couldn’t coax the kids to come out with me when we had a snow day Tuesday, but honestly, it’s something I like to do alone anyway. I walked for over an hour in the storm, which at that point wasn’t quite the blizzard that was predicted, and only saw a handful of people out shoveling their sidewalks. Rare to see the neighborhood so empty like that. Standing in the middle of Prospect Park during a snow storm is one of my favorite sensory experiences. It’s not… CONTINUE READING

2015 New York Calendar

2015 New York Calendar

November 13, 2014 |  Category:   photography the biz

This year’s calendar just be my favorite NYC calendar yet! I’ve used a different paper stock that is 100% post-consumer recycled paper and the weight of the paper is thicker than the stock used in years past. The calendars are available here and here.   The holiday season is already here as far as cookie production goes. Mark’s been super busy in the kitchen churning out massive amounts of cookies for our retailers and wholesale accounts who are stocking up for the holidays. We haven’t yet set our holiday ordering deadline since we’re still weighing production schedules, but it’ll most likely be around the 11th of December. You can always order anytime up until the deadline and specify that it’s… CONTINUE READING

2015 Food Calendar

2015 Food Calendar

October 27, 2014 |  Category:   photography the biz

A bit late this year, though I thought I was being proactive and on top of things because I actually started the calendars in September. And then…life happened (the NY one will hopefully be coming in a week). The 2015 Food Calendar is available here or here.… CONTINUE READING

The Mixed Race Project: Meet Rebecca and Joon’s Family

The Mixed Race Project: Meet Rebecca and Joon’s Family

January 15, 2014 |  Category:   photography

It’s been a really long time, but I have another installment of the Mixed Race Project up. I met Rebecca and Joon’s family in Seattle last summer (I know, such a long time ago), and I’m excited to bring you their story. This will most likely be the last family featured in the Mixed Race Project. I had intentions of visiting and shooting a few more families in the NY area in the Fall, but work has completely consumed my schedule. I even met with a literary agent over the summer who was very interested in pitching the project in book format to publishers, but I couldn’t figure out how to make the extensive travel schedule that it required fit… CONTINUE READING

2014 NYC Calendar

2014 NYC Calendar

November 5, 2013 |  Category:   life nyc photography the biz

I’m a bit late on everything this year, but I’m finally happy with the way the NYC calendar turned out and it’s available for sale now. Find it on our website and on Etsy.   Speaking of NYC, it’s election day and we’ll be getting a new mayor today. The democratic candidate who lives in our Brooklyn neighborhood actually, is most likely to win. I don’t know how any other New Yorkers feel, but I think it’s so strange that we’re getting a new mayor today. I’m pretty sure I felt that way when Bloomberg replaced Giuliani in 2002, but it’s not often we get a new mayor here in the city; there’s only been five in the last 40… CONTINUE READING

2014 Year in Food Calendar

2014 Year in Food Calendar

October 24, 2013 |  Category:   art + design photography the biz

Had a rare free day from work commitments yesterday so I took care of W&S business that’s been hanging over me since the holiday rush is now basically a little over a month away. Reordered product labels, took stock of inventory and finally listed the 2014 Year in Food Calendar. A little late this year, but here it is. Available in our Etsy shop and on our website.   I get asked quite often where I get my calendars printed. I print them in-house, trim the pages one by one with an exacto knife, collate the pages together with a bellyband, then slip each one inside a cello sleeve. Pretty sure I do a lot of things like this in… CONTINUE READING

a new york sunset

Sometimes you see the most incredible sunset developing that it compels you to pull over from driving and watch the whole scene unfold, from the first bands of color to the point where the whole sky turns to fire, and finally – till it dies down to darkness until the only thing left is the lights from the city skyline.   Bye New York. See you in September.… CONTINUE READING

this year’s fireworks, up close

this year’s fireworks, up close

July 8, 2013 |  Category:   holidays life photography

I love taking photos of fireworks (I’m tempted to print these big). As long as the Macys Fireworks show stays on the Hudson River, we’ll continue to watch the fireworks that my mom’s town puts on in Long Island. Less crowds and we get to be right under them up close (but not too close. We learned our lesson last year when it was a little scary as embers rained down on us for most of the show).   Speaking of the Macys show, if it continues to stay on the Hudson River as it has been for the past 5 years, maybe Brooklyn needs to initiate a Kickstarter to have our own fireworks show over the East River again.… CONTINUE READING

The Mixed Race Project: Meet Christine and Randy’s family

January 7, 2013 |  Category:   photography

Posted another lovely family over at The Mixed Race Project. Christine and Randy live in Seattle, WA and I had the pleasure of visiting them when we were there in August. I loved the hilltop view of the city from their Seattle home and it makes me impatient for the summer when we’ll go back like we do every year. Although I’m not sure how much longer I will continue working on this project, I do hope to feature a few more families this year. Thanks for all your encouragement and positive feedback over The Mixed Race Project over the last 18 months. It’s helped me keep the series going.… CONTINUE READING

The Mixed Race Project: Meet Roxana and Dupre’s family

December 17, 2012 |  Category:   photography

It’s been a while since I put up a new family on the Mixed Race Project, but I did indeed visit 2 families on our West Coast trip this year. In Portland, Oregon, I met Roxana and Dupre and their 2 adorable girls. They cooked a super delicious Sunday breakfast and we talked about Portland, New York, food and the NY Yankees (Dupre is a big fan). Thank you Roxana and Dupre for letting me into your home!… CONTINUE READING
