Ice Cream Social Tacoma



Here is part two from my three month long contract with Ice Cream Social Tacoma as their primary commercial photographer! You can check out Part One Here.

One thing I really enjoyed about photographing the monthly flavors was predicting which set would be the most fun to stage and document. Then, being surprised when it was ALWAYS a different flavor that turned out to be my favorite. I imagine, with time, I would predict this more easily.

For this set, I thought mojito would be my favorite. Once I got shooting with the different ingredients, I couldn’t get over the texture contrast of the banana walnut! I shot the heck out of that set and enjoyed every second.

A couple days before a new shoot, the owners of Ice Cream Social would send me the upcoming flavors to be photographed. The morning of the shoot, I would head to the grocery store to pick up complimenting ingredients to the flavor list. Example: “Strawberry sorbet” so I’d pick up fresh strawberries.

I wanted the ingredients to tell the story of the ice cream flavor being documented. This way, viewers could quickly see a flavor on Instagram or Ice Cream Social’s website without reading a thing.

This little shopping trip before each session was so fun visualizing each set.

The in between

Life has been very romantic lately. Unknown and confusing and both flighty and grounded all at once. I remember being 14 and seeing my entire life by your side. Life is wild. I remember a water bottle and abandoned bleachers. I remember axe body spray and the way I had never been kissed. I know […]

Nirvana & I think of you

I hope you know better than to think I’d want to be anywhere but here right now. It was true on NYE and it’s true right now in my car outside the café. This may have felt seamless. Too seamless. Happenstance. But I’m here on purpose, now. I see your soft heart and I see […]

I hope you know better

You’ll walk through a glittering white veil, uncharacteristically soft compared to what you’ll find behind it. It has no need to keep you out. You quickly realize it’s the aura within that turns most around. The texture disorients. I’ll already be inside. What do you see? Upon first impression, you’re in a desert. Interesting considering […]
