Portrait of a Gourmand – A gourmand is simply, someone who takes pleasure in food and eating. This is a continuing photographic series of gourmands, from all walks of life. There are many gourmands that inspire us in profound ways that make us experience and think about food differently. These portraits essays share their amazing stories.
You’re looking at two lovely and multi-talented people. Allison Day, founder of Sushiday.com, is a dancer and a web developer. Her boyfriend Phu Son Nguyen is also web developer, artist and photographer. Their artistry and love for one another is nothing but obvious, and infectious.
Together they create websites, they blog, they cook, they dance and they photograph together.
We hired Allison to be a model for one of our photo-shoots one afternoon and right by her side was Son, helping her with her outfit changes and helped us with behind the scenes lighting. Watching them work together and seeing how they gently communicated with one another was such a treat.
So, with our cameras in hand, we pulled them aside for a little private shoot before the sun set on the horizon.
In those 10 minutes we captured a moment in their story.
