Ashley Martin of The Local Haven asked me to letter a few assets for her Food Styling workshop, and I happily agreed. It was a morning full of beautiful props, tasty food, and good lighting, thanks to Coco + Kelly's stunning 95 Yesler loft. Here are a few sneak peeks.
Tons of pretty vessels just waiting to be filled.
Beautiful set up inspiration for a party. Those drink tags have been really popular this spring.
One of my three "styled" shots. Watch for the recipe for this amazing and simple salad tomorrow!
This menu is a new style for me and one that I really am drawn too. I love the organic, elegant feel.
A delicious rose.
Such an inspiring morning. Honored to have been a guest and a vendor.
As much as I love styling, I think there's also something to be said for purposefully not styling, and capturing life as-is. Only three of these photos were "styled" before taken (the salad, the menu and the wine) and the rest I just saw the composition that was already there and grabbed the shot. I think there is a time and place for styled photos (product shoots, for example) but I really love capturing life unstyled even more so. Just my personal preference.
All photos here were taken with my iPhone. A few were posted to Instagram, follow along there for more glimpses into my daily life.
