Etcetera

I might be a little crazy about photographing poppies when I see them. 

Ashley Puckett of Opal Stackhouse recently asked me to photograph their redesign of Bodega in the Short North. Opal Stackhouse is responsible for the awesome work of The Crest, Elm & Iron, and Ethyl and Tank, so I was really excited when she asked if I was interested in shooting Bodega! 

We decided to shoot the space both during the day and at night. It’s amazing how different a space can feel in different light. If you were ever in Bodega before, it’s a great change to the cramped space it was - I love all the small details and craftsmanship that went it. I didn’t include a photo here, but the bathroom hallway might be my favorite area (you’ll have to see it for yourself when you go there & drink). I’m also looking forward to trying the new menu…

Below are some batches of photos from vacation to Rosemary Beach. My film camera battery died the first day so all other pics except for this one are from my digital - which I am very glad I decided to bring since the Olympus pooped out. 
To summarize : Rosemary Beach looks like a West Elm that decided to become a beach town mixed with the charm of the towns in Kiki’s Delivery Service, if that makes sense. Ryan & I were invited to stay with our good friends Tristan & Hannah in one of the beach houses. We made tons of amazing food, including several recipes from the newest issue of Gather Journal (fried plantains with mojo, avocado and radish & two batches of pecan thins) as well as the Wiseman’s Cake from Jeni’s new cookbook to celebrate Tristan’s birthday. We also grilled loads of shrimp and treated ourselves to lobster tail & plenty of modelo w. lime. Aside from eating fancy, we swam in the ocean everyday & got a good small dose of sunburn. I’m now somewhat in post-vacation-depression, but am looking forward to many days of watching the world cup at home with friends.
enjoy!

"It quickly becomes clear that Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream Desserts isn’t just a simple ice cream book: there are big ideas at play here.” - Eater National

"The photography, shot by Kelsey McClellan, brings to mind the over-saturated photos of old Betty Crocker books or mid-century home-ec textbooks (in a good way). All together, it’s a fun — and possibly very useful — little ice cream book."
Wooo!
