Now that the weather has turned cold, we thought it would be nice to share a warm ice cream shoot we just shot. Food stylist Sunny Ricks helped us with some fantastic work making the ice cream look great. Now that we are past the darkest day of the year, lets hope for a short winter so we can eat cold ice cream again!

We wanted to do something extra special this year for our studio holiday card, so we asked some close friends to help. Tim Neeedham came up with the clever idea of a photoshoot with Frosty in a remote mountain location. Since the weather was not cooperating with providing us snow, prop stylist extraordinaire, Sara Mills-Broffman  helped us creatively make our model. Once we had the different elements shot, we had retoucher, Alan Woolwine put the final scene together.

Have a wonderful holiday wherever you may be!

Always a cheerful model, no matter how long on set.

This Frosty would never melt in a greenhouse! Take notice Hinkle!

Sophia, our adorable new studio mascot jumped in to pose with Frosty.


Santa found the time to come to the studio last week for a quick photo shoot for Scene Magazine before the big night out later this month.

A few months ago we were given the challenge of having to create holiday light backgrounds while making the products stand out and look great. It was not any easy job, but the final results below which just came into the Staples stores across the country, are nearly identical to what we accomplished in camera. One added benefit from the shoot is  now we have plenty of lights to decorate the studio!

Jen and Kendra worked hard to create these beautiful backgrounds.

Michael gave the electronics the white glove treatment, this was the perfect job for the OCD photographer!
