A few weeks ago I was at a client’s house and noticed a pretty lemon tree that I thought would be fun to incorporate in their photos. As I got closer I realized it didn’t look like my lemon tree, it almost looked like an orange tree. Come to find out…it was a meyer lemon tree! Right then and there, Pam cut off a branch for me to take home and I’ve been trying out some new recipes and wanted to share my favorite with you.
For those of you that don’t know, the meyer lemon is a citrus fruit, native to China , thought to be a cross between a true lemon and a mandarin orange or sweet orange. The peel is much thinner than a regular lemon, which makes it easier to juice and the juice is slightly sweet!
The lemon cupcakes with cream cheese frosting that came out of my kitchen this week were to die for! Now, I will be the first to admit that I have my fair share of flops, but these…these…well, let’s just say you’ll be dieting the week after you make them.

Have you noticed I’ve been playing around with my watermark? I just haven’t settled into one that marks my pictures enough for the those that end up on facebook and desktops and such can be traced back to me, yet subtle enough to not be distracting. Oh, and it has to be cohesive with the brand. I think I’ve found it in this watermark…thoughts??
Lastly, I have a few more slots left for next Saturday in the late afternoon if you want to do a spring mini-session with my victorian settee. The location will be in Long Beach…long overgrown grass, a shady tree and a rustic little fence. Can’t wait! Email me if you want to sign up. firstname.lastname@example.org
