Studio Choo at Front Porch Farm…

Just like their flower arrangements…choo5 Studio Choo‘s flower arranging workshop at Front Porch Farm had the perfect combination of all the most creative, stylish and inspiring ingredients.

Day 8 – Back to work…

I realized on the first leg of my three+ hour commute to South San Francisco that today was my second to last photo shoot with the Studio Choo ladies. After two years working together, I am going to miss bundling up in extra layers, eating burritos with green salsa, trying to bounce light off the dark clouds, blowing dirt around with the rocket and catching up on the latest developments of our very fascinating lives. But I am excited to share our new collaboration that is coming out in the fall of 2014… and here is a teeny tiny sneak peek…010814_44A0215

I photograph people…

When I was working on photo shoot yesterday, for an exciting new book with Lila B, I met another photographer who asked me what I photograph.

My quick reply, as I was standing behind my tripod with my camera pointing at an arrangement of flowers,”I photograph people.”

Photographer man: look of awkward confusion.

My addendum, “And lately, flowers.”

While I do love, and probably prefer photographing people, I am willing to photograph almost anything if the people I get to work with are amazing.

And as I start work on my second flower/plant arranging book, I can confidently say I have nothing but love for flower people and I will happily work with them any time.

Here are behind the scenes look from my first flower book, with the incredible Studio Choo, that will be on the bookshelves, in a book store near you, this spring.
