I had the incredible pleasure the last nine months to work on ISED's Recipes For Success cookbook/journal featuring inspiring women business and community leaders in Des Moines and the surrounding area. Iowa is unique compared with other places I've lived in that women are not only actively encouraged in business here, but successful women leaders are always on the lookout for women just starting out to mentor and help along the way. It's wonderful to be a part of, and I made some lasting friendships working on this project. Plus, the food is delicious!
You can order a copy through ISED's website, or look through it at Sticks and Kitchen Collage. Below are some of the portraits I was lucky enough to take for this book.
