Today, I am over on, The Creative Mama, with the latest installment of our Food Photography 101 series.  We’ve covered lighting, lenses and styling to this point.  Now we move onto my favorite part of food photography, telling the story of food through images.  Come on over, and learn who inspired me to move beyond photographing a beautifully styled plate to sharing more about the process of a recipe coming to life.

After a whirlwind, wonderful weekend in New Orleans, I’m itching for spring more than ever.  I flew down Friday to photograph a cookbook, and was greeted by blooming wisteria and azaleas, green grass, gorgeous old oaks and warm sunshine.  It was exactly what this Midwestern girl needed.

While I can’t say too much about this current project, I can tell you that the book I photographed last summer, The Best Homemade Lunches on the Planet,  is on pre-sale now, and will be released in July.  My kids have been loving the recipes from this book, it has added to much variety to our lunch packing routine.

For today, I’m over on The Creative Mama sharing my installment of our series, Food Photography 101.  Over the next few months, I’ll be sharing a little about how to take pictures of food and the tricks and tips I’ve picked up along the way.  Come on over!
