emilia, again

While I love many things about the beacon portrait project, I have sometimes felt that it would be nice to revisit some of the characters that I have met over the years.  Recently Emilia, beacon portrait #102, agreed to let me take her picture once a month for the next year.  I am really excited about this because 1) Emilia is a really incredible person and 2) she's awesome to photograph. Here are a couple of my favorite pics from July and also one from our original session together.  Stay tuned for August....thank you, Emilia!

Two stories and the cover in the current issue of Edible Magazine.

First, The Locusts, a farm in Staatsburg, NY run by the lovely Olivia Kirby and Zach Wolf.

And then, The Inn at Pound Ridge, where I met chefs Melody and Blake Farrar and ate some of the best food ever, really.
