Weekend At The Bunkhouse

This shoot was such a fun combo of work and play! Got to spend the weekend away in a cozy cabin on a gorgeous ranch in Marin with some of my favorite people and some new friends. Hot toddies, meteor showers, homemade chili (turned frito pie.. thanks to Jenn!) longhorn cattle grazing right outside the window… all affirmations of why I love my job. Jenn Bonnett was on board helping out with wardrobe, and my talented sister Natasha Kolenko wrangled all the props and Brian was there to be my extra set of hands. Together we collaborated with our handsome on camera and REAL couples, Meg and Sean, whom just got engaged over the holidays (congrats guys!), and Melaine and Rick, whom just celebrated their 5th anniversary a few days before our shoot. AAAAawwwwwww.. It was fun timing since the shot list included a few make-out sessions and lots of cuddling.

Adding some Life in the New Year

Bringing in the new year with a few portfolio updates! I shot this lifestyle series for Weekend Almanac magazine a few months ago… this is just a small portion of my favorites form the shoot. I’ll be releasing more in the next few months that really tell the full story. This is just a teaser.. for now. Just wanted to remind everyone, I love shooting people too! Not just food. HA!

Fast Easy Fresh | December | Bon Appetit

Happy to share a bit of new work today that I photographed for this month’s Bon Appétit magazine. Loved finally being able to work with photo editor Rachel Tomlinson in person, she has a great eye! It was a treat to collaborate with her and the rest of the styling team, including food stylist Rebecca Jurkevich and prop stylist Kalen Kaminski. Thanks for the fun shoot ladies!
