Last week I had such a great time photographing the open house for Dr. Ashley Magovern of Manhattan Dermatology. Not only is her office GORGEOUS, but she has the staff to match! Very energetic, bubbly and fun. You kind of want to be that weird patient that just hangs around. Ha!

The event went off without a hitch. The most amazing part of the night, was the food. Owner and founder, Leah Obegi of Pier Catering, turned Dr. Magovern’s micro kitchen into a production line of gourment, modern, mediter-asian cuisine that had all of the guests beelining for more. I tried my hardest to snap a few pix, but I kid you not, hands were flying and food was disappearing as Leah was walking about with these enticing dishes.

If you’re interested, Leah not only does special events, but personal cheffing! Oh my gosh, how amazing would that be to give up cooking meals (OR, let’s be honest, running to Chipotle for every meal! Leave me alone! There’s vegetables in their burritos!). Her email is

Gazpacho in a shot glass with a splash of olive oil? Yes please!
