“Bee-utiful Food Photography!”
I love photography, I’m very lucky to love what I do for a living. And, if you know me personally or follow my personal life on social media, you know I also love food! I love everything about it: cooking, eating out, trying new things…and I especially like food photography. There’s something very satisfying to me to make food that tastes good look delicious, too.

Soups are tricky…the ingredients like to separate, they tend to congeal as they sit and cool off and it can be difficult to see the ingredients. So, often, the simpler the setting, the better. And we had to work quickly.
