During the winter months when things are a little slower and weddings aren’t as abundant, I try to experiment with different types of photography. For the last few months I’ve been trying to do some food photography and it’s been such a refreshing change. For those that know me, my love for food and ability to eat is no mystery. There’s a reason why one of my old managers used to call me “the machine” lol. I can’t help it, I love food and I love trying new foods! My mother is a phenomenal cook and our family used to own a restaurant so I’ve always been surrounded by yummy food and a lot of different types of food. My taste buds usually lead the way during my travels and I have to say, it’s lead me to a number of interesting flavours. Some things I would never try again but so far most of the foods I’ve tried, I wish I could fly back for more! Thank goodness Toronto is so vibrant and so multicultural! I love that I only have to drive 45mins to access a wide variety of foods from so many different cultures. My only downfall is that when I’m really hungry, it’s so easy to go with what I know will be awesome, SUSHI. Gaaad, I’m such a sucker for that stuff! Anyway, I’ll try to post more of my food work as I go along and will hopefully have my new website featuring my travel and food work up soon!
For now, here are some yummy photos from this past weekend. My friends Ben and Laura are amazing cooks and I’m always drooling whenever they post their food shots. We’ve been wanting to do a ‘food shoot dinner’ for awhile now and we finally got to do it. Not only is Laura a great cook, she’s also very crafty! She makes so much stuff and it’s all so pretty that I just assume everything in their house is hand made and I just go around pointing at things and asking “Did you make this? How about this?” Anyhoo, thanks to the Jackson for a lovely dinner and good conversation!
