A Cookbook Shoot

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll already have seen these photos, but I wanted to repost (regram?) them here. I just wrapped a 5-day cookbook shoot for Houghton Mifflin Harcourt! I can't tell you too much, except that it involved pounds and pounds (and pounds and pounds) of butter. There were some tense moments (cookbook shoots are the marathons of the food photography world), but the entire team was terrific, and it was a pleasure as usual working with the great Justin Schwartz. Thank you all! 

Now comes the part where I hole up in a room and prep the photos for delivery. Then it's sayonara to these babies 'til next year!

It's a wrap! Here's the entire team: a whole lotta ladies and Justin, the editor!
