Food Photography - Yekta Kabobi Restaurant

This week I had the amazing opportunity to be commissioned by Yekta Kabobi Restaurant to help with their new website design. Specifically, I was responsible for doing their food photography. Maybe it's because I'm a foodie but while food photography is not as "exciting" as weddings or dance photography, I find it an extremely satisfying job. 

Not to mention, most of the time I do get to sample the goods.

Just a few faves below including a quick portrait the owners (Sougol & Sahel) and manager (Adrien).

And yes, I highly recommend making a reservation - the food is amazing.


Food for thought: Moms meal

Over the last month we've been cooking with Blue Apron which inspired me to start photographing our meals. While the two images below were not from Blue Apron they were made by the mother. I asked her to call us when she's making picture worthy meals, not that its the only time we get to visit, but I told her I would start photographing them for her.

Last night, for appetizer, she made Butternut squash raviolis w/ brown butter sage sauce (first image). Main course was Broiled lamb chops w/ Rosemary boiled potatoes, string beans & mushroom's. Roll-your-eyes-divine flavor!
