Sonoma Market Picnics

A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of shooting numerous menu items from Sonoma Market, perfect for picnics this summer! We lucked out with an ideal spot in the Sonoma Square, taking over one entire corner with props, food, and photography equipment. A HUGE thank you to Tory and Jenn for assisting, holding larger than life diffusers against wind and dappled light, to Lisa and Lisa for food styling, prop styling and organizing and to Al, Angel and their teams at the Market. We hope these images make your mouth water...Sonoma Market has it all! Angel and his team create beautiful, delicious food that you really need to go grab. Today.

Lifestyle Shoot: Dinner Party

One of my clients is building their asset library and I have been so lucky to work with them on both the visual content side doing photography and digital content as well as digital marketing strategy.

Building a bank of branded stock imagery is critical to success in marketing efforts. The game has changed - social media users are drawn to high quality imagery, making more frequent and stronger connections with brands & people. Investing in your imagery will elevate your online presence and keep your brand positioning and personality consistent and top notch, just like the product or service you offer.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the most recent shoot:

Fig Food Shoot from The Girl & the Fig (nom nom nom)
