September was jammed packed—I can’t remember a month that’s been busier. It’s been filled with a whole lot of new…new and good…new clients, new 2nd assistant, new food stylist…the list goes on. I’m über thankful for all our clients, our crew, and all the fun we get to have while we work together. What a great combo.
This month’s high?
Working on another cookbook with Courtney Whitmore. (Last year we did photography for her succesful Push Up Pops book.) This time?… Forty fun images for her tasty new Frostings cookbook due out in March. How can you not have fun spending two weeks in the studio with pounds and pounds of powdered sugar and a great team—Courtney Whitmore and her fab crew Tessa and Hillary and my a-team Caroline, Rory and Ian. So, all that being said, here are a few behind the scenes snaps from the Frostings shoot.
This month’s low?
I’m stumped on this one. Perhaps my low is being so busy I haven’t had time to really savor the moments. It’s kinda hard for me to savor to start with—that’s part of being a Type-A. But, as I look back at what we’ve done this month I’m very pleased. So, I guess that’s kinda a cop out for a low since previous lows have been things like hitting my head with a ping pong paddle or arm wrestling a network router’s IP address. I know, exciting stuff.
Next month? Dallas. I’m sure my high will be something about an enchilada.
ps. On a personal note, celebrating 15 years of marriage to the most wonderful person I know was a high this month. Amy and I celebrated by buying rocking chairs (makes us sound really old) and going out for a very nice dinner at Eastland Café in East Nashville. At least we didn’t celebrate by going out and buying a new refrigerator. Maybe next year.
