Dinner with Friends
A design-focused, quarterly lifestyle magazine celebrating California's Central Valley, one dinner party at a time.





Milkshakes and wine—what a delicious combination, right? We’re kidding, of course. Except in the case of the photo shoot for our latest “Superlative” interview with Kayla Pendleton and Sara Baronian.

The photos were shot at Her Space, Pendleton’s co-working space for women in north Fresno. A place so adorably decorated it practically begs to have its picture taken. And what good photo shoot happens in silence? Um, none! The soundtrack for this particular shoot: Kelis’ “Milkshake,” a favorite from the decade when Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were pop royalty (and then they weren’t, cry me a river) and “That’s hot” was the catchphrase of the moment thanks to Paris Hilton. We may or may not have listened to it on repeat throughout the entire shoot, said photographer Yvette Goltiao.

The wine, of course, was provided by Baronian’s Nativ brand. And the good vibes were brought by all three boss babes (four if you count Kelis). All in all, it was the perfect combination and made for some sweet photos. Which paired perfectly with the honest and sincere conversation between Pendleton and Baronian.

Oh, and if you’re wondering what Kelis is up to these days (as we were), she apparently graduated from culinary school a few years back and now has a new line of sauces. Looks like she’s still keeping things spicy even if she’s given up pop music and milkshakes.
