Since we don't share a brick+mortar studio anymore, Ashley and I have to plan our collaborations far in advance. And that's something she's much better at than I -- perhaps her years in the fashion world or maybe just her oldest sibling nature, Ashley is able to look months ahead and foresee needs and schedule accordingly. So now when either of us are visiting the other's state of residence, you can bet we'll have a day or two set aside for photographing content. Here's a peek at one of my favorites from her recent visit : Blackberry Thyme Gin+Tonic. Ashley has a super educational (and especially delicious), series called Bar Basics in which she educates her readers about building a home bar and provides non-intimidating cocktails with which to wow your guests. You can find the gin+tonic recipe on her blog Ginger+Birch.
