Meet the exotic beauty behind Capital Teas, Manelle Martino. I got to spend a day with Manelle in her beautiful Annapolis home and absolutely loved the natural light that was coming in from her living room window, so I used it to get this head shot.
Loved having the stunning Vickie Althoff in the studio. Ridiculously talented Mara of Lady Peacock toped off the look with beautiful hair and makeup.
A little behind the scenes action... Love these girls!
The local region is home to a number of culinary entrepreneurs who are putting Baltimore on the map as an exciting foodie hub, but one of the most outstanding leaders on the scene is Michele Tsucalas, the founder and owner of Michele’s Granola. She is a true innovator and leader in the artisanal food movement in our region and beyond.
Michele is a self-taught baker who spent countless hours blending and baking with natural and organic ingredients until she discovered the perfect, crunchy bite, and her business Michele’s Granola was born. She began her operation as a one-woman farmers market show in 2006, doing all of the baking, marketing and selling herself. Her delicious granola is still made by hand with quality ingredients that you might find in your own kitchen, including organic and non-GMO oats, nuts, seeds and spices. She grew her customer base one granola bite at a time, and word-of-mouth helped her business to grow exponentially. She carefully expanded her business in to a thriving bakery based in Timonium where today, a capable crew of 25 team-members assists Michele in baking more than 7,500 pounds of granola weekly.
