Laurie Frankel Photography
I could look at Laurie Frankel's photographs all day, and well... I nearly spent an hour on her site last night enjoying each and every delicious bite from her portfolio. The way she sees the world is so interesting to me, I love the portraits that she takes of children and all the cute poses she gets them in, and of course I like her food photography because it makes me hungry, and her still life photos interest me because I delight in looking at all the little bits that were perfectly styled that she then experted photographed. Would you like to see a few of my favorites from her portfolio? First, I'll start off with my absolute fave. This one...
Why? Because I had hot pink wheels on my white skates growing up. I don't know what these are exactly, but mine were called Zinger and I cleaned them after every single roller skating session. I loved my pink wheels so much that I had to keep them looking brand new at all times. I was constantly in the pro shop and hanging out with the cute skate guards asking them if they could look at my wheels, rotate them, oil the ball bearings, yeah I was a crazy girl - crazy for boys and roller skating so I made sure I learned about every single part of my skates so I could impress them. This photo takes me back to couples skating, shoot the duck, and "the next skate will be an all skate" he he, I love it. I started at 4-years-old and was a speed skater (I was quite competitive and won a lot of races!) by the time I was 11 or 12. Do you have roller skating memories? I could write an entire post on this, what a riot! I digress... Back to pretty photos.
Leslie is quite an accomplished and talented lady with clients that include Pottery Barn, Nestle and DreamWorks, to name only a few, so I'm certain you will really enjoy her website today because she's quite an inspiration!
