Pretty Paper Parties

Late last year Angie photographed the cover for Pretty Paper Parties by Chronicle Books, and we were excited to see it popping up all over the place in local gift shops and bookstores.  Seeing our hard work out in the world always puts an extra spring in our step, but it’s particularly rewarding when it’s a project as beautiful as this.  

Stop by your local bookstore and take look for yourself, or read more about Pretty Paper Parties on Chronicle’s website.

February is for Lovers (of sugar)

February is a sugar addict’s dream!

We normally keep an embarrassing amount of sweets at the studio, so throw Valentine’s Day into the mix and all bets are off.  Heart shaped candy suddenly seems like the perfect side dish to compliment our lunchtime soup and sandwich.

What could make this month even sweeter, you ask?  A book full of Jell-O recipes, of course!  Ten Speed Press is releasing Hello Jell-O to bookstores today, and it’s full of giggly photos shot by Angie.  Take a peek and you’ll find dozens of fun recipes written by Victoria Belanger, the Jell-O Mold Mistress of Brooklyn.  

So go out into the world, eat some sweets with your loved ones, and make the last couple days of Sugar Month count!

Angie's Diabolical Sweet Tooth

When your morning starts with cupcakes, gumballs, and sugar pearls, you know you’re in for a good day.  Angie loves photographing cute sugary things for two reasons:

  1. She has a big fat sweet tooth.
  2. She is determined to send the entire studio into diabetic shock.

Angie begins every shoot just like every other photographer.  She stretches, does a few jumping jacks, throws punches in the air while singing the lyrics to “Eye of the Tiger,” and pets her camera for good luck.

Angie actually has “mad bow tying skillz” listed on her resumé.  

The following photo shows Angie hard at work while Dan ignores her cries for help and stares at cupcakes.  So typical.

Eventually we all caved to the pastry pressure and treated ourselves to some post-photoshoot sweetness.  We finished the day with smiles on our faces and jitters in our bones.  Yet again excessive sugar intake marks another successful day at the studio!
