Portland Food Photographer-Pretty Photos

Portland Food Photographer

Last Friday, I woke up to the sun shining.  Well, okay, I woke up and it was dark out because I’m crazy and go swimming at 5:15 in the morning.  I should say when I had my first cup of coffee the sun was shining.  By the time I arrived home later that day, it was dreary and drizzling. I had a wonderful day, I even witnessed a transformation that was just shy of a miracle.  But I couldn’t help to feel… not really sad… but wistful.  I could not shake the longing I had to photograph something pretty.  I’ve learned over the years when you have a heavy desire to photograph something you should do it, you should do it right then if at all possible.  So I ran to Whole Foods with absolutely NO plan.  I purchased a few cupcakes from the case.  (I did not have enough daylight to bake or create myself.)  I grabbed their vegan vanilla cupcakes that had orange, yellow, white and green flower icing.  (I did eat the cupcakes that night and they were delicious!) And I purchased some flowers and fruits to match the yellow hues.  I raced home, trying not to disturb the cupcakes, which I failed to do so. Luckily I bought three instead of two.  As the dreary light started to fade I laid out my produce and sweets and just started to play.  That’s all I wanted to do, play with composition and styling.  Create a pretty picture.  And I hope you find that I did just that and if you happen to be feeling wistful at this moment (probably because it’s still dreary in Portland) then I hope these few images brighten your day.  After my impromptu photo shoot, I felt much better.

Don’t forget to play sometimes, it’s good for the soul.  I hope you enjoy the images.

Lauren - These are beautiful! So glad you ran with it when inspiration struck! I really like the half circle styling. All ways of styling I never think of.

Marlynn @ UrbanBlissLife - I love this! Beautiful photos, as always, but also a great reminder to just play and get creative, especially when the urge to create is there.

Erin @ Platings and Pairings - I love these shots. Not only are they beautiful, but it looks like such a relaxing activity too! Usually, when I’m shooting my photographs, it’s a bit stressful, because it’s dinner for the night, and I don’t like eating cold food 🙁

I need to make more time in my life to do more shoots like these. Thank you for the inspiration.
