BTS: Rex Goliath Wines 2-day photoshoot

It was so amazing to work again with the super cool client Rex Goliath along with agency Partners + Napier. The client was able to fly into NY from Cali. this time to really experience the full shoot and be on set for creative direction.

Over the course of 2 days we photographed some wines they carry in bottle and their grab-go style tetra packs creating the summery/outdoor feel. We used bright lighting and actually brought in grass to make it feel more outdoors. (There was still snow on the ground outside and just starting to creep into comfortable temperatures.) Along with the wine photographs they were introducing recipe pairings and we got to photograph those as well. The food was no-fuss easy "picnic type" food which made for really cute and casual shots. I had my amazing team; food stylist Carrie Purcell, and prop stylist Deb Donahue. Check out the BTS video with pieces from both days and a couple of the final shots at the end of the video. Enjoy!

Behind The Scenes: Kellogg's Photo Shoot

Here’s a behind the scenes look at a recent shoot in New York for Kellogg’s packaging for some of their international brands. We were re-creating the look and feel of some packaging with more of a natural “foodie” look that’s trending in the market right now. Working with Deb Donahue my prop stylist and Dyne Benner a food stylist we had great options for bowls and surfaces. Also re-creating a milk pour with modern motion was fun. Having enough cereal for these type of images is a must. My assistant took some iPhone grabs of me working as well as cereal prepping.
