When Diem asked me to do a mini lifestyle photo shoot, I was excited to join her at Caffe Bene for something “cozy and casual.” Her words exactly. What’s cozier than rich wood tones, a steaming cup of joe, and girl talk? Diem arrived late so I was able to enjoy some rare me-time before our shoot. I had a cup of coffee and lunch all by myself. Sans kids, it was awesome! The camera loves Diem. She is amazing and easy to shoot. No warm-up required. Oh, and she also turned the lens around on me – this is what happens when you’re on the job with one of your girlfriends!
