Sweet Paul Magazine: Denver based Flax and Twine studio and craft by Jimena Peck

Living in Colorado for several years has allowed me to create a network of fellow photographers. I love getting to reconnect with people I have previously worked with, and always end up learning something new to add to my toolkit.


A few months ago, my photographer friend, Rebecca Stumpf, invited me to help out with a project photographing book content for Flax and Twine. I was happy to help out, and compliment the stylistic techniques she used.

A few months later, I was contacted to photograph Anne’s studio and projects for a special feature in the Sweet Paul Magazine’s Winter issue . I got to work on assignment again, this time with Anne, the sound and hands behind Flax and Twine.

I am a lover of yarn, textiles and every DIY project. So, photographing Anne’s art was a dream. It is always a pleasure getting to know creative folks like herself, who pour their love and soul into their craft. Through this project I also got to work again with Natalie Warady, who is a super talented and contemporary stylist.

Sweet Paul Magazine curates wonderful content for foodies, crafters, and homey folk. They are an awesome team, and I am thankful for the opportunity to have worked with them.

STK Denver Restaurant: Food Photography by Jimena Peck

STK is a brand of restaurants that is part of The ONE Group Hospitality that artfully fuses dining with night light. From Milan to Las Vegas, STK distinguishes itself by showcasing both an exquisite menu and world-class service. I had the opportunity to take pictures for their Denver location. Many guests would agree that stepping into STK Denver is like spending an evening in New York…it isn’t your typical Colorado Steakhouse.


Located in the LoDo neighborhood of Denver, it is close to other nightlife and entertainment. It was voted one of the best Steakhouses in America by Forbes, and I could definitely see why. The flavor profiles and presentation I photographed were spectacular, and that is coming from a vegetarian. While they specialize in fine dining (seriously, they offer chocolate and raspberry donut holes with Foie de Gras chocolate sauce), they also host a DJ and “social hour.” It is a great spot for special occasions or private parties- both trendy and and decadent.

Thanks to the crew over at STK for their wonderful service and energy for this project. Their style is sleek, classy, and down right mouth watering- totally fun to photograph. I am happy with how the pictures turned out, and think they reflect the brand. I love working with all things food, and these guys did not disappoint.
