In my first blog post of 2016, I posted about some of my favorite projects from 2015, except that post was focused on everything except food photography. Partly because it was already getting too long without food photos, but also as an exercise to showcase a range of photography from the past 12 months, since there is usually a strong focus on food photography around here. I’m versatile and open to different possibilities!
So today, I’m posting part 2 of 2015 highlights, this time focusing on food photography projects from 2015 (that I’m able to share!), like I do. And no, “2015 Food Photography Picks” wasn’t intentional, but we’ll go with it.
I started my first blog in 2006, so 2016 marks 10 years of food blogging for me. That’s kind of weird. These days I run two blogs: this one that you’re currently reading, and a vegan food photography and recipe blog called Seitan Beats Your Meat. 95% of the time, food blogging is a labor of love for me, so I use SBYM as a platform to experiment with food photography projects without any guidelines or restrictions. Every once in a while, a brand or publication is into that, and I’ll prepare a sponsored post, like the first image below from an awesome collaboration with Honest Cooking and Colavita!
I started bringing mixed media into food photography last year, and photographed a series of colorful brunch and drink-themed photos (images below). Prints, greeting cards, and magnets are now available at SHOP | kelly peloza photo, and I was able to participate in some local art and craft markets.
I delivered some new recipes and photos to Skyhorse Publishing for a new, paperback version of The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur that will be released in June! Other updates include a new cover (pictured below), a Macaron recipe contributed by Charis of Floral Frosting, and an awesome foreword from blogger and cookbook author Natalie Slater of Bake and Destroy!

Food Product Photography
The photos below are from a recipe development and food photography project with Upton’s Naturals to create recipes for their website. The project was with two of their main products, seitan and jackfruit. Next week we are headed to Bangkok, Thailand to photograph jackfruit in its natural habitat!
Thanks for a great year!
I’d love to work with your brand this year, so please get in touch about partnering this year. 🙂
