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.

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.
