• Last minute opportunity to occupy a page in the Coupe Design and Image Awards Spectacle
    = quick shoot with my friend and photographer Reena Newman (www.reenanewman.com).
    Inspired by our local watering hole where birthday cake is one of the few menu items
    and always seems like a good idea after a night of celebrating; a birthday, an award - any occasion
    (or none at all).

    Below. Enjoy a behind the scenes look at a sugar filled photoshoot.

    Lessons Learned:
    * stash of stale fortune cookies in the kitchen are a less than stellar replacement for a good copywriter
    * don't hold your breath when piping Young Baroque
    * pink icing is harder to match than a Pantone
    * when using a low table for a food shoot, don't leave the dog unattended
