Meritage, Boston Food Photography: And As You Feel It, You'll Know It's True

Stick a fork in me; I’m done!
This is a photo from my last Boston Homegrown session, with Meritage at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Pretty amazing, right? After I finished photographing this strawberry shortcake, I got to eat it. Why not photograph that, too? My half-eaten dessert is still pretty photogenic!

After more than a year of photography and thousands of miles of driving, all principal photography for the Boston Homegrown book project is completed! And by completed, I mean that it’s been taken, edited, and mailed off to the publisher!! It has been such a huge part of my life this entire time – the ending is sort of bittersweet. I’m happy to reclaim my days, but sad that I’ll no longer be getting to meet and hang out with all the chefs, farmers, fishermen, and cheesemakers. I now have a very long list of restaurants to try and people to buy fresh foods from. My evolution from picky eater to less picky foodie has been pretty radical! I can’t thank all the participants enough for being so wonderful to work with and for sharing all their knowledge and their passion. It’s contagious! I plan on spreading the word…

    1. AWESOME picture. I want.
    2. I’ve said it before, but I’m thoroughly impressed with your transformation! I think reading about your experiences is what inspired me to try a bite of sea bass and a piece of calamari in the same day. The latter is something I NEVER would have tried.
    3. Your photos make me want to try all the restaurants!
