Michael’s fond childhood memories of the smell of homemade pasta came to life during this shoot. It was a wonderful way to spend the day returning to his roots, making great pictures of handmade fettuccine and ravioli along with some gorgeous vine-ripened tomatoes.  While Jen is not working on setting up lights and whizzing through file management for our clients, she is a gourmet cook at home. Enjoy our behind-the-scenes photos of her making the pasta… and then feast on the final images!

Ravioli stuffed with ricotta.

These tomatoes would make a wonderful primavera sauce.

Fettuccine the way it should be: Fresh!

The Italian word for tomato is pomodoro… Translation: “golden apple.”


Jen uses her ingenuity as she hangs the pasta on a C-Stand.

An old family cookbook can’t be wrong when it comes to tasty recipes.

Jen carefully punches out the ravioli.


It looks gourmet, but you can get it all from the freezer section at
BJ’s Wholesale Club.
