O is for: ORGNL.TV

If you follow e is for eat on Facebook, then you've already seen the fabulous photo shoot I did with the talented Don Bell. The motivation behind it? Well, I've been wanting to do a shoot like this for awhile... but had just never gotten around to it. Recently I agreed to do some guest contributing on ORGNL.TV, which officially launches July 1st (though you can check out my first article here.) As they were constructing the bio pages, one of the editors asked for a few of my "lifestyle" headshots I was like... "ummm, what do you mean?"

While it wasn't totally necessary, I figured it was a good time to get some professional photos taken for use on the blog and other future endeavors. I immediately thought of Don. He is soon headed to L.A. to start a job with Fox Sports1, but he has been an anchor at ESPN for the last three years. Our time at the Worldwide leader barely overlapped at all, but long enough for me to know his talents are just as strong behind the camera. I texted him to see if he would be able to help me out before he left, and he asked if I was available the next day. Not wanting to miss out on the opportunity, I was able to book two of our awesome hair/makeup girls from ESPN (Renee Russo and Maureen Sullivan), who were able to come to my house on super short notice and glam me up for the shoot.

I told them all I wanted it to be chill, natural, "me." Just hanging out in my kitchen like I do with much of my free time. Needless to say, I'm ecstatic with the photos. I think they nailed it. The relentless rain even broke for a bit so we could snap a couple outside, and we randomly found a little garden at a school next door to my place. We *really* wanted to get a shot of me tossing the cherries up in the air, but couldn't figure out a way to execute correctly. Oh well, I think the shot of me holding them and *contemplating* throwing them turned out great. What do you think? (P.S. I've also added an "about me" section to the blog, found here or by clicking the tabs above).
