I don’t always do my hair and makeup

Sharon with AY Magazine

I don’t always do my hair and makeup but when I do… I invite my friend over, toss her the “big” camera and ask her to document everything I do that day!!

Does anyone else try to multi-task to a ridiculous level? Lance is always telling me, “You’re trying to do too much at one time.” Well I say, “GO FOR THE GLORY!”

When a magazine told me they wanted a simple photo of one of my pies, I ran with it! You see, in my head I decided “a photo of a pie” meant I need to bake five pies, take advantage of a perfectly clean kitchen photo opportunity, do my hair & makeup and let the photography magic happen!! Though, as all photographers know, there is no “photography magic.” Photography is an art requiring strategy, planning, perfect placement, perfect lighting, amazing patience and the skills to coordinate multiple people.

Check the newsstands for the March issue of AY Magazine this week and you’ll find the Honey Pies “Notable” along with a sneak peak of my upcoming seasonal pie. AY’s sweet and talented Creative Director/Photographer, Sara Edwards Neal, worked her tail off just to get the perfect shot of my seasonal Shaker Lemon Pie. Shhhhhhh, it’s still technically a secret until March 1st but you’re guaranteed to love it! My Shaker Lemon Pie is packed with fresh Meyer lemons giving it a taste that is both sour and sweet. The Shakers considered lemons to be important to a healthy diet and were one of the few things from the outside world they desired. Believing it to be a sin to waste any part of the lemon, they invented this recipe back in the early 1800s to use the entire lemon for a sharp lemon flavor in each bite. This is a seasonal pie.

Thanks so much for all of your continued support! None of this would be possible without you!
