Watercolor Popsicles & Ice Cream


It's 94ºF over here so even though school has started, I don't think our summer weather is going anywhere just yet... which is great, because I have another ice cream story after this one to show you.

Inspired by dreamy watercolors (and doing a little of my own painting), here is the second half of our shoot.

Light & Fresh Desserts


Excited to share with you my most recent food shoot featuring light and fresh desserts. Dana Bonagura rocked it with her beautiful food styling, creating a Plum Almond Rustic Galette & Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble. Those plums were unreal. Brenda Barrett-Taylor's prop styling added just the right amount of deep jewel tones and a rustic woodsy theme.Check back tomorrow for the second half of our shoot, the Watercolor Popsicle and Ice Cream nicole gerulat ; food styling: dana bonagura; prop styling: brenda barrett-taylor[...]

Ali's Bridal Shower


I'm back! I'm back! And I have lots in store for you this week. First up:Saturday was my baby sister Ali's bridal shower and the details were too sweet not to share. My mom's friends did a beautiful job with gorgeous flowers (Holly Fowler) and our favorite "shower" food: Thai Lettuce Wraps. I'm not sure how the tradition was started but if we are ever involved in giving baby or bridal showers, it's either quiches or lettuce wraps. I made my salted caramel ice cream and Oreo sweet cream ice cream and you better believe there wasn't any leftover to eat the rest of the weekend. (To keep my weight up, I'll be making more.) Happy Wedding Month, Ali! [...]

Evie Update


While Evie and I were in New York, she was invited to hang out on set at our Kiwi Magazine cover shoot. She loved playing on their chalkboard wall. And, she did surprisingly well the rest of the day.... and even took her nap in her stroller so I made a cove of black v-flats to help keep her asleep on set.At home, I pulled out my camera when she was playing on our bed. I need to do this more often. The proverb of "The shoemaker's children go barefoot." is unfortunately a little too true for Evie. I rarely dig out my "good" camera for pictures of her, but I'm so glad I did. She's growing up so fast. Changing so quickly... and that personality of hers can't seem to get bigger.She is 19 months. I can't believe it. © 2012 Nicole Hill Gerulat, All Rights Reserved.[...]

New Cover: Kiwi Pets Issue


Photographing pets and kids... sounds like total chaos, right? I had a lot of fun with sweet 4-5 yr olds and 2 very well-behaved pets for this cover shoot for Kiwi Magazine. Lots of drool and slobbery kisses!

Us Weekly / Bacardi Shoot


In April, I had a great shoot for an Us Weekly/Bacardi advertorial featuring three parties with Busy Philipps. The parties will be featured individually throughout the summer in the magazine. Here is the first, featured in the June 11th Us Weekly issue:

So happy to work with.....
Carrie Purcell, Food Styling
Kate Martindale, Prop Styling

Hopefully I can show some behind-the-scenes because I'd love to share with you all the great details Carrie and Kate created.


Evie & Stella


When I ask Evie if she wants to see Nanny (Natalie), she just starts barking for Natalie's dog, Stella. It was a happy reunion when she woke up from her nap to find herself smothered by Stella in Nat's apartment. So basically, we made it here safely and are excited for lots of adventures this week!
