Editorial Feature | Diablo Magazine

One of the many perks of working with a local lifestyle magazine, specifically Diablo Magazine, is getting a sneak peek of up-and-coming local businesses. This month’s issue introduced me to Shadowbrook Winery — “the first winery and tasting room to open in Walnut Creek since Prohibition”. I’m already dying to reserve a tasting overlooking beautiful Mt. Diablo! Also in the October issue is a portrait of Editorial Director, Deborah Kirk, sipping something tasty at another Walnut Creek business (one of my go-to’s) Coffee Shop.

Check out the current issue and, if you haven’t already, stop by these Walnut Creek businesses for wonderful food and drink experiences in my neck of the woods.

Editorial Feature | Diablo Magazine

As a lover of coffee and local businesses, saying yes to this assignment was a no-brainer. 

I had the privilege of photographing drinks and drink-makers at Coffee Shop, a new (you guessed it!) coffee shop in Walnut Creek for the September issue of Diablo Magazine. In case it isn't already implied, yes... I did try their coffee and have been twice since the shoot. It's evident why Diablo decided to give them some well-deserved recognition. 

These were a few of my personal favorites...
