Update: Bisnow Dining Added Photo Credit {Food Photographer} Washington, DC

Yesterday I posted about Hello Cupcake‘s feature in Bisnow Dining and mentioned the lack of photo credits on the piece.

High fives to Alia Jehan Khan at Bisnow Dining for responding so quickly and getting photo credits for my images and those of another photographer!

Featured: Bisnow Dining shows off Hello Cupcake’s Celebration Cakes

So happy to see some of my images of Hello Cupcake‘s new Celebration Cake line gracing the pages of Bisnow Dining!

These cakes are seriously gorgeous, y’all. And the staff is top notch. From owner Penny to baker Tess and all the counter staff, you won’t meet a nicer bunch.

Sidenote: I’m pretty bummed that Bisnow isn’t crediting photographers. I’ll never understand the logic behind not giving credit where credit is due. But I digress…

Now do me a solid and like us of Facebook… we’re just so likable!

Againn’s Page @ CityEats.com {Elizabeth Parker – Washington, DC – Food Photographer}

I am just soooo pleased with the photos from Againn for CityEats.com.

And can I just say that this gaelic quote from their website just made my day:

“An rud nach leigheasann im n uisce beatha nl aon d’n leigheas air.”

“What butter or whiskey does not cure cannot be cured.”

I can’t wait to go back and eat again(n)!

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…
