Cloud City Ice Cream – a venture into food photography

    When Bryan, owner of our Woodstock neighborhood Cloud City Ice Cream, contacted me about doing some photos for him I jumped at the chance. While I’m not a professional food stylist or photographer, I was excited about the opportunity to make some beautiful imagery of one of my FAVORITE foods for someone who is so awesome and passionate about hand making a delicious product with the highest quality local ingredients. Not to mention his devotion to the neighborhood.  And well, even though my specialty is photographing people, Bryan believed in me for this project… and that meant a lot. Thankfully we were both thrilled with the results! Just look at this gorgeous ice cream!!!

    Sunday #9

    Our Easter Sunday.

    Spent lounging…2 farm store visits & dirty looks from goats…Farm store #2. this time with sweet looks from goats…New babies. Here’s Bunny. A Black Sexlink…And here’s Happy Unicorn Lady Gaga. A Buff ORphington…

    Sunshine and a little yard clean up. Sam said it was “pretend summer”, thus nekkidness was required…And some water play…Chick watching…And some egg dying that was an exercise in patience…Dyed finger tips…And our own natural egg bounty. (finger nail by Zoë)…
