Southern California Vegan Eats

Being vegan in Southern California has some serious perks. There are new restaurants, pop-ups, and vegan options appearing all over, all of the time! Here are some photos of recent food field trips around the area. You can find even more food pics/info on my instagram!

Happy Herbivore: Holidays and Gatherings

Aside from Greens 24/7I also had the privilege of shooting quite a few pictures for Lindsay Nixon’s Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings! This cookbook is filled with easy-to-make dishes for every holiday from Easter Brunch to Christmas Eve Dinner, and everything in between. Plus, all of the recipes are plant-based/vegan!

Lindsay is always really great to work with, and with this project I got to dabble in styling larger group shots of food; which was pretty intimidating at first, then got easier with more and more practice. I think that I would still like to experiment more with those types of shots, I just need a bigger shooting area!

So, check out some of my favorite recipes and photos from Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings and take a look at the other cookbook that I’ve done for her, Happy Herbivore Light & Lean!

Greens 24/7 Cookbook

I’m so excited to be sharing this post with you today! Sometimes, it’s really hard to keep pictures for cookbooks under wraps until they are published and in stores, and Greens 24/7: More Than 100 Quick, Easy, and Delicious Recipes for Eating Leafy Greens and Other Green Vegetables at Every Meal, Every Day was definitely one of those books. I was fortunate enough to take the photos of Jess’s, of Cupcakes and Kale, first cookbook mid-2014; and it was one of my favorite large projects to date.

Jess’s food is colorful, balanced, delicious and imaginative, so it made it really easy to love cooking/styling/shooting these dishes. Here are just a few of my favorite shots from the book, as I wouldn’t want to spoil it for you. 😉
