Avocado Toasts are super trending in San Diego right now. Found this version of the toast with nicely scented truffle oil and micro greens at the new Hillcrest spot 'Refill Cafe'. Not only was this toast super flavorful, but also offered enough colors & lighting textures for an awesome click.
Macarons at Claudine Kitchen & Bakeshop in Encino, California. This was part of an entire bakery spread set up for the photo shoot. It initially started as a fun experiment with shallow depth of field, but the client liked the effect. Shot wide open to isolate the macarons from the other baked goods. It was one of the best smelling photo shoots ever!

Pumpkin Spice Betrchinno // The Pumpkin Spice Chinno, Evolved // In all of my work, I want to convey a sense of love to you. Eating is one thing all of us share in common. It's one of the finest way I can give love to people all over the world, and from all walks of life.
In this Betrchinno piece, each thing was lovingly chosen. A book from my beautiful mother, a blanket of my gorgeous roommate that keeps me cozy and safe at night, a rose from a lover, a leaf, from my temple.
To me, all these things also represent change, changing of a season, changing of relationships... and that even in change and death, there can be comfort and beauty. And course the recipe itself is a culmination of all this love and care (and it is AMAZING).
