Photo Shoot 8, August 2010

Last weekend, my sister Heather hosted the greatest dinner party I've ever been to. It took place in her Colorado backyard; as an artist herself, her vision was a "Babette's Feast", "Chocolat", and "Big Night" dream a la Martha Stewart -- a spectacularly planned feast that was finally realized in this 7-course spread of deliciousness! There was even a wine service in between each course! I began taking pictures right when the preparation began on the day before. My vision was to emanate Martha Stewart Magazine a little bit, with the idea of putting together a collage of some of the best images at the end. This won't be a collage, exactly, but at least you can get a bit of an idea as to the event. It was interesting shooting food rather than people for a change. I learned quite a bit, and artistically, I actually had a lot of fun. Be sure to visit Heather's blog at to see more photos of the food and the menu. These are my favorite images from the night.
