Welcome to my blog…to my life. I’m a California girl…born and raised here…spent a few years in Colorado, but California holds my roots. I’m a child of God and blessed to know Jesus…his grace and love are priceless to me. I’m a daughter and sister, wife and mother…three times each out of three of these. I’ve experienced young widowhood, divorce and true kindred spirit love. I’m a friend, an open book and a truth seeker. I create without following recipes or reading music...I thoughtfully and creatively photograph images that speak to my heart…and hope to yours. So, come share my life through the eye of a camera lens. I will show you pieces of what I see, tell you stories about them and often write a prayer along the way.
Blessings to you,
Patti

Jeriko Estates Winery {Sacramento Food Photographer}

Late in January I set off to photograph the lovely Athena at beautiful Jeriko Winery near Mendocino here in Northern California. The weather was rainy, but it just meant for cozy fires and wonderful times in the warm and buzzing kitchen. Athena is building her web site http://www.athenamackis.com/ and wishes many photos of her displaying her culinary talents and the environments where she works her magic. She is one wonderful chef, I might add! You have no doubt seen her on my blog many times before…mostly in modeling, in which she is stunning to photograph as well! Please just sit back and enjoy the beauty of Jeriko Estates…the owner Danny Fetzer was such a gracious host to us all! You might just close your eyes and pretend to be partaking in this amazing cuisine created by Athena.

I got up early on Sunday morning and had some time in the Word…then went to a local Calvary Chapel for worship. It was a sweet service and the pastor sung with his guitar from the heart. Then when I came “home” I was served a wonderful breakfast and spent part of the afternoon pouring through the photos in the fabulous cookbooks that Athena and Emily brought with them…inspiration for me!

Ok, this may sound crazy, but my favorite picture is the one of the knife and green onions. Love the lighting!
