Shannon and Matt (of Mayernik Kitchen and Shannon Mulligan Photography) asked me to capture a typical Sunday morning. For them, "typical" included a trip to the Ridgewood Farmers' Market, a cup of coffee, and a stroll through their garden.

And they served me breakfast, too. I mean, seriously. How could I say no?

Shannon and Matt are not only fascinating people but they are gentle and kind. They care about what they put into their bodies (and their customers' bodies) but they also care very deeply about what they put out there into the world.

Have a look at their work from the links above. You won't be sorry.

Shannon and Matt, thank you. It was a pleasure to meet you both and to spend the morning with you. And I'm still thinking about those egg burritos!
