The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur new release

The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur: Over 120 Scrumptious Recipes Made with Natural and Simple Ingredients just came out earlier this month and the response has been great! It’s wonderful that people have been enjoying the original book so much over the past 5 years, making a brand new version possible. There are a few incentives to

The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur paperback cookbook

Remember this cookbook? Maybe you’ve owned a copy since it was released in 2010, or just saw me posting about it on here or over on the Facebook page. Or maybe you’ve never seen it before because you’re following this blog for other photography topics and genres, and not so much the food photography. Either

Coffee and bread

Good morning! Unsurprisingly (since interiors are one of my favorite types of photoshoots besides food!), one of my other interests is design: interior design, styling, and reviving vintage furniture. I’ve been working on several home and furniture projects around the house lately, some new, and some secondhand furniture rescues. Living in a small space, I’ve

Pi Day Pie Photography

2015 Food Photography Picks

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

Upton’s Naturals Jackfruit

A few months ago I finished up a recipe development and food photography project for Chicago-based meat alternative company Upton’s Naturals. They manufacture a line of seitan products and recently launched a line of pre-cooked and seasoned jackfruit products. I posted the seitan recipe photos I made for them in an earlier blog post, and
