Mexican Pastries

by Matt on January 5, 2010


As I prepare for an upcoming trip down south to Mexico with a few of my brilliantly beautiful blogging besties as well as the one-and-only-Michael-Ruhlman I thought I’d share a photo with you taken by my amazing friend Gabriel Goldberg. A few months ago I asked if he would come over and photograph me with a concept I had. After brainstorming and a little bit of set building our sweet pink wonderland we spent the day laughing, lighting and crawling under tables and c-stands. It was one of the best days I’ve ever had and being in front of the camera is a million times harder than being behind it, trust me on this one.  Luckily for me I was in the hands of an amazing photographer who usually only shoots people that are famous, beautiful, beautiful and famous, beautiful and famous with .0002156% body fat and other assorted gorgeous Hollywood types. It was great to just let go and enjoy the moment and embrace my silly side because folks, you know how incredibly serious I am most of the time, don’t you?

Enjoy my head in a box but know this: if  you sing the SNL song about something else in a box while referencing me I promise to pinch your arm really really really hard like my mom did to me when I started acting up while shopping at Woolworth’s as a child. And then I’ll join you in song.

And just so you know it did take forever to screw my head back on.
