Santa Barbara Portraits

Been taking portraits of several special women in my neighborhood. One is Chloe. She is pregnant. Adrian taught her how to walk when they were toddlers on the ranch. The other is Mariella. She is my sister-in-law. Both have such extreme beauty and specialness. Both are inbetween something. Becoming a mother. Becoming a woman.


Yogurt Panna Cotta with Rhubarb Sauce and Pain d'Amandes

I shot food photographs for the lovely Ingrid Pankonin yesterday. Her private chef business is Miel Cooking and if you were at my opening at Mollusk you have already tried her magical creations. She cooks delicious food and I highly recommend hiring her pronto. She also makes mustards, jams, her own 'lillet' and other apéritifs. Have a party! Learn how to grow food and have her design your vegetable or kitchen garden.... she can do it all. She also just started a food blog. Yay Ingrid!
