bob’s clam hut for yankee magazine

Even though I shot this assignment on a cold Saturday in November, the photos have me itching for warmer days and fried clams! Photographing Michael Landgarten, the owner of Bob’s Clam Hut, and his family & staff for Yankee was such a treat. It was my first visit to this Kittery institution and I cannot wait to return to enjoy my own basket of clams in the sunshine!

2015 james beard semifinalists

Back when the 2015 James Beard Semifinalists were announced, Michael and I were traveling so it took me awhile to write this post, but I couldn’t have been happier to see Portland and Maine so well represented on the esteemed list. Among the impressive selection of the nation’s best restaurants and bars are clients & friends, Central Provisions and the Portland Hunt & Alpine Club. It was an honor of mine to play a small part in the first year of these two businesses and I know great things are in store for both.

Through our travels, documented on Map & Menu, Michael and I have been very fortunate to experience a number of the other 2015 James Beard Semifinalists. The following are a few memorable dishes from our trips to some of the country’s best restaurants including – SoLo Farm & Table, Long Grain, The Optimist, Eventide, Miller Union, Alley Light, Buvette, Two Boroughs Larder, and Mateo.

Michael J. Harris Interiors Hudson NY

This past fall I spent some time in Hudson, New York shooting some projects for the talented Michael J. Harris. We spent one of our days photographing his own beautifully decorated home right in the center of Hudson, that happens to be right next to two of our dearest friends. I had such a wonderful time working alongside Michael, shooting his design work and the window treatments he creates himself. If you’re ever find yourself in Hudson, a stop at LICK – the ice cream store he owns and operates with his husband – is an absolute must.

To see more photos from our shoot, click here to view Michael’s design portfolio.

more furbish studio work!

I recently realized that I never got around to sharing two of the very first projects I shot for Jamie & Jessica at Furbish. These beautiful rooms in two different Raleigh homes were shot the same day we photographed the teenage bedroom for Domino. It’s always so much fun working with this talented team of designers who aren’t afraid to mix bright colors and bold patterns. See more about each project on Jamie’s blog herehere, and here.

lolita for down east magazine

I was thrilled to have the opportunity shoot Lolita for Down East Magazine last fall! Michael and I loved the owners’ former restaurant, Bar Lola, and have been just as taken with Lolita, their newest venture. Everything we’ve had at this Mediterranean-inspired small plates restaurant on Portland’s Munjoy Hill has been delicious. While on my shoot, I sampled the vegetable cassoulet after photographing it, and returned the following week to order one of my very own. We’ll do a proper write-up on Map & Menu this winter, but for now here are a few favorites from last fall’s editorial assignment with a fantastic accompanying article by the talented Michaela Cavallaro.
