Sara, our photographer in New Orleans, captures a dinner party scene, and Alison is probably about ready to dig in.
Simone, the public relations coordinator for our New Orleans shoot, is also taking a picture of the action on set. Everyone’s a paparazzo!
The whole New Orleans crew gathers for a group shot (are they called ussies now?) after they’ve wrapped for the day. From left: Denise, food stylist Andi, Simone, Alison, prop stylist Valerie, Sara, prop styling assistant Joe, food styling assistant Anthony, and homeowner Charlee.
And Alison celebrates a successful shoot with a tray of Gulf oysters. The rest of us back in Connecticut approve, albeit with green in our eyes.
Many hands make light work-of chips and dips, that is. The FC editors go a little nuts when these things appear on the tasting table.
Our photo editor Kelly often doubles as woodworker and painter, and she’s happy to do it when it means working outside on a day like this.
And our interns sometimes double as models. Julia demonstrates exemplary sitting-still skills while Kelly holds her sweater in place and Ronne styles the food in her hand.
Ronne tweezes soup ingredients into place. We dig the natural look but also want to make sure readers can see all the components.
This sofrito smelled so good, we wanted to remember the moment. Maybe the next iPhone will have a scratch-and-sniff-camera option?
