Being a white mom to black children comes with many learning curves. Natural hair is definitely one of them and having a son with type 4c (the kinkiest kind) that dreams of long locks, I have been put to work.
Modern Wifestyle isn’t only about Food, but about Food Photography. I often get an idea for a picture and then I create a recipe so that I can bring my thoughts to reality.
Food Photography is becoming a very popular genre and more and more people are pursuing a career within - but that doesn’t mean Food Photography is easy or simple. It has taken me 3 years of constant practice to become good at it.
Food Photography wasn’t something I planned on doing for a living. I studied Fine Art, and was going to make series like Family Vacation. But sometimes life serves you a chance and when that happens it’s all about grabbing it.
Styling things has always been a strength of mine. While working in a flower shop and as a waitress when I was a teenager I quickly became good at arranging bouquets and setting tables with the cutlery perfectly aligned. That experience gives me great advantage pursuing Food Photography since I do all the Food and Props Styling myself.
