butcher's sew shop | philadelphia brand photography

I first came to know Butcher’s Sew Shop as a student in their knits 101 class, and I was immediately head over heels for pretty much everything they stand for: taking the fear out of making clothes, striking the perfect balance between patiently guiding students and giving them space to take risks, and cultivating a welcoming and inclusive space where anyone can enjoy creating in the supportive company of like-minded people. So when Mali asked me to shoot this class session, to put Butcher’s story to images so we could show everyone else just how incredible the learning experience is here, it felt a little bit like winning the lottery - so many things I care about came together all in this one project.

I couldn’t be more thrilled to have had the chance to help show the rest of our community what a treasure Butcher’s Sew Shop is to the Philly maker + small business scene. Being able to shoot for small businesses I personally support & believe in, exactly like Butcher, is the type of work I’d happily do forever.

chaddsford winery | vintner's table april 2017

Last month, I had the great pleasure of working on behalf of Dish Works to photograph the lovely Vintner's Table dinner over at Chaddsford Winery, where a local chef prepared a lovely multi-course dinner with wine pairings for an intimate group of lucky diners. The management and staff at Chaddsford couldn't have been a nicer, friendlier bunch, and it was wonderful to see a group of strangers come together over a love of wine and a beautiful shared meal. 

Chaddsford hosts these dinners monthly; you can find more details over on their website.
