Holiday Shortbread

December 16, 2011 § 5 Comments

We learned tons of tricks to make food look absolutely amazing for print and tv. This first picture was taken Tuesday night in Central Park. It had just rained and was so pretty! I loved the cold, crisp air – it was so refreshing from the 75 degree sunshine here in CA.
