Recently purchased props for food shoots…love the little cabin hot pad!

Loaning out props to other stylists is part of what I do…I keep up with it all coming and going by taking iphone photos.

 

Relocated my blog photo shooting to my living room. Those windows are like a giant wraparound softbox when the shades are pulled. When the shades are open the lush greens add nice texture in the background of some shots.

A couple of weeks ago I cleaned, purged & straightened up my styling props....do you think I have enough blue bowls?

Although it is summer there are lots of Holiday pies to shoot…here I am using one of my favorite styling “tools” to get just the needed effect. See what the camera is seeing on the screen in the background?

Today there was a photo shoot in my kitchen. We shot steamed clams…lovely light on a grey rainy day.

Faux old sugar bags

We needed some vintage looking sugar bags for a cookie shoot so I made these using stamps, old fabric and photo copies! One of the many things I end up doing other than styling the actual food!

  1. Wow, amazing work! It was so fun to get a few insights into your process and what goes in to the photographs you take. And to think I work so hard to get “not horrible” photos…You are truly an artist! Both with your cooking and photography.
