It’s my birthday!

Zucchini Chocolate Cake, Vanessa Rees, V.K.Rees Photography

Today is my birthday. I’m turning 26! So much has changed in the past year. Most notably, I quit my day job and (so far) am successfully working as a freelance food and still life photographer. I feel ridiculously lucky! =)

I haven’t been able to update the blog much this summer so I thought I’d take minute to  share some of my most recent projects. I believe work will calm down in fall allow me to get back to some blogging. I’ve missed it!

A few of my favorite shots from Isa Chandra’s newest cookbook “Isa Does It.” Coming to Barnes & Noble in fall 2013. These recipes are so good!

A few of my photos have made it into magazines this summer. Check out the cover photos, cheese feature, and taro feature in the July/August and September/October issues of VegNews. The July issue of BUST magazine has a great article on canning that I was lucky enough to work on. I love BUST and VegNews oh so much!

A few shots from a holiday shoot for Catdaddy moonshine.

Till next time! xx
