A Look Back At My Texas Monthly Shoot

How the Texas Monthly Shoot came to be

Five months ago, I got an email from Texas Monthly Magazine. They were doing a story about the drink Lime Agua Fresca, and they wanted a picture of the drink to accompany the article. They needed a quick turnaround, and so I had to work fast. But I knew I could do it. Those three days were probably some of the most hectic ever — and it didn’t even involve cooking! But I had a great time, and I would love to do it again. Take a look at my Texas Monthly shoot.

The atmosphere during the shoot

I wanted to create this drink with a twist. I took the same concept, but made it more colorful, more fun and definitely more drinkable.

Agua frescas are traditionally fruit-based drinks that are popular in Mexico. I wanted to do something that felt very summery and approachable, so we decided to stick with bright colors, fresh limes, and lots of ice.

I had a great time putting this shoot together and want to thank Texas Monthly for choosing me. I’m proud of the work, and am really happy to have been a part of this project. If you want the recipe, feel free to make it! Here’s the link
