Snip Snappin’ Away

Hi friends! Sorry for the lengthy gap between posts, but the last several weeks have been very busy for me. I am officially working on my very first paid photography job! I can’t share any details yet, but I will say that it is extremely exciting and challenging. I tend to get easily frustrated when things don’t go the way I expect them to. Do you want to know what happens when I get frustrated and baked goods are involved? Here is an outtake from my photo shoot:

That is a misbehaving mini lemon pound cake on the floor. I threw it across the kitchen after many unsuccessful attempts at photographing it. Tim was kind enough to capture the incident on his camera. I would have left that pound cake there to die, but Tim gratefully devoured it. Luckily, I had a second mini lemon pound cake that cooperated fully!

And, here are a few photographs that didn’t make the cut, but I love them anyways:

I have one more photography project to go with this job and it all starts in a few weeks! After that, I am kicking it into high gear and finishing my cookzine! It will be roughly 50 pages of recipes, tips, silly nonsense, and craftiness. I hope to have it completed by late spring/early summer. Stay tuned for updates on my progress.

I hope everybody is enjoying the remainder of the winter season. It has been amazingly mild in the Pacific Northwest. We haven’t had much snowfall in the mountain areas so Tim and I haven’t had a chance to go snowshoeing yet. Crossing my fingers that we get a few trips in before spring arrives!

  1. Didn’t make the cut? Why, those are great shots! And good thing Tim was there to console that poor, scared mini ;). Keeping fingers crossed – I want to see snowshoeing pictures!

  2. I love the pictures, can’t wait to see the ones that actually made the cut! Also – it’s quite impressive that the pound cake held up so well and not breaking. Also, I know how frustrating food can be when not cooperating, few things makes me as furious.

    • I know! I can’t believe the cake didn’t shatter to pieces (as I hoped it would)! Oh well, I suppose it’s easier to eat off the floor when it isn’t a pile of crumbs. At least we can get revenge on uncooperative food by eating it, right? :)

  3. Yay! So happy to hear about the job and the cookzine! Your talent deserves to be recognized.
    Lemon poundcake…seriously it would have been a free-for-all tackle to get to it first had I been there.
    Best of luck to you…your blog looks fabulous! Cheers!
