This summer Jennifer Silverberg heard the words every photographer hopes to hear from a client – to just go explore & make beautiful images. Ann Lipton, the owner of Winslow’s Home (a St. Louis restaurant focusing on whole, seasonal foods) reached out to Jennifer when she needed images that captured the raw beauty of her 5-acre organic farm and delightful restaurant space.
It was a two-day shoot: 1 day at the farm and 1 day at the restaurant. The weather had been let’s say…interesting in St. Louis this summer causing some crops to require some patience and persuasion so choosing a shoot date for the farm was a bit of a challenge.
Finally, the clouds parted and the flowers bloomed & the vegetables and fruits ripened and all was right in the world. Liberty, the quietly focused farm manager agreed to be in some shots while continuing to work. Jennifer was a kid in a candy shop running from place to place around the farm capturing it’s natural beauty. From the drying shallots & onions on stacked flats to the hanging garlic, the location had plenty to capture. The restaurant shoot also went smoothly with a combination of naturally lit sets and sunlight beaming in the windows, and of course the staff kept the delicious treats coming fresh from the ovens.
“Winslow’s Home celebrates the beauty found in simplicity and Jenn Silverberg’s photography captures the essence of this through easy uncomplicated imagery that feels real and unscripted” said Lipton. The final images can be seen on Winslow’s website and in various print ads as well. I’ve always been a fan of Winslows and working with them was as much of a treat as eating their delicious offerings. Come to think of it, it’s time for lunch!
