Photography & Cooking with Books

Holiday 2010 my wonderful husband bought me a new camera; the Nikon D3100. And since then it's as if I'm seeing in color for the first time. What a difference from the last camera I had... which wasn't a bad camera, but it wasn't even close to being in the same league as the Nikon.

My latest design project was possible largely due to the fact I have this amazing camera. Nelly Rodriguez, of Cooking with Books, was in need of a more personal blog banner and I was thrilled to be able to design one for her. Nelly is a baker by trade, studying baking and pastry making at the Culinary Institute of America. So it was no surprise when she said she wanted dough in the photo of her banner. She had also asked for a specific font she'd seen on another design of mine. Nelly decided to go with a crisp white sidebar which looks like freshly pressed baking whites. A perfect touch! And the end result is the following...

Stop by Nelly's blog. She has so much to share from recipes and utensil spotlights, to travel tips and reviews. I learn something every time I read one of her post!

I look forward to sharing my design clients with you on my Design Portfolio page. Up next is a complete blog redo! So excited to share it with you. Stay tuned!


  1. It was so great to work with you Patti! You perfectly understood and executed it to the most amazing, happy dough banner ever! I honestly cannot stop staring at it! Thanks!

  2. I love it! I love the font so much works great with the photo. Can't wait to see what else you've been up to!
