Trial & Error Cookbook

This book has been months in the making! I had the opportunity to work with Justin Thompson, a local chef and restaurateur on his first cookbook that highlights his most memorable recipes over his 20 year career here in Tulsa. This is a huge check off of my bucket list, I have always wanted to have my photos published in a cookbook and can’t believe I’ll get to hold this in my hands in just a few weeks! Evan, my fiance, was also a big part of this project and helped creative direct the entire book. The majority of my food photography experience has always been in restaurants, so this project was a little different in that it was all shot in Justin’s home kitchen, we were able to get creative with the dishes and backgrounds to give it a more lifestyle aesthetic and a more approachable feel for readers.
