Worlds collide! Clients mix!

Was so happy to see my image that I took for Ripple‘s Grillled Cheese Bar up on CityEats‘ blog The Plate. If you haven’t swung by Cleveland Park for happy hour or a late night gourmet grilled cheese, you’re missing out!

Featured on Southern Living’s The Daily South { Food Photography } Washington, DC


If you grew up in the South, your mother inevitably had a subscription to Southern Living magazine and a collection of their annual cookbooks. For me, they were a symbol of home and all that was right with the world.

It is with great pride that I can say that my photos were on Southern Living’s The Daily South. It makes me even happier that they were in an article celebrating the accomplishments of my friends at RippleChef Logan Cox and Pastry Chef Alison Reed who cooked at the James Beard House in New York this week.

Bravo, everyone!

Behind the Scenes: Ripple Winter Menu Shoot {Elizabeth Parker – Washington, DC – Food Photographer}

Last night, I did a quick shoot for Ripple to highlight some of the latest and greatest on their seasonal menu. Since the days have been so short lately, I’ve been searching for ways to create the lovely natural light that I prefer to shoot food with….inside at night. On Black Friday, Adorama had amazing deals (as people are apt to do on Black Friday). I took advantage of the deep discounts and bought this product shooting pop-up booth that is marketed for selling stuff on eBay. For $20, I was willing to roll the dice and see if it would work well for food. And it did! It took some finagling (please note the to-go boxes as an improved way of boosting the lights higher), but I got the light where I wanted it. All that to say, my working hours are no longer at the whim of the seasons!

Check out the iPhone shot I snapped of the setup and then scroll down to see some of the final images:

Gratitude! + Valentine’s Day CityEats Edition {Elizabeth Parker – Washington, DC – Food Photographer}

Loved opening up my email today to see so many of my images on the Valentine’s Day email from CityEats.com!

I’m in such a grateful place. And oddly enough, my super happy zen has come from preparing my taxes. Yes, there have been many moments this week of my dropping my head to the desk due to the frustration and boredom of entering in transactions into QuickBooks and analyzing reports (ah, the joys of owning one’s own business!). Once I finished going line-by-line though 2011, I had a very clear picture of how much my business and really my life in DC has grown in the past year. I could literally trace the timeline of building the home office, putting together an amazing gear kit, and all the wonderful experiences (culinary and otherwise…) I’ve had in the past year. It’s been incredible. I am just so thankful to everyone for welcoming back the States and into this amazing city with such open arms. I have to especially thank my friends at Ripple for supporting me and all my creative whims. It was so serendipitous that we found each other! Also, big love to CityEats.com, the whole New York team and all the restaurants that I’ve had the pleasure to work with. You guys make my heart sing!

I feel awesome about where I’ve been, where I am, and where I’m going. 2012 is going to rock my socks…
