I took two photography courses this month and will review them at the end of the week. One class was more technical and the other provided creative prompts. Both, however, encouraged taking photos of home-baked sweets. I knew I needed to take cookie photos for Sarah's Christmas Cookie album, so I decided to try a little food styling.
We give multiple cookie trays to neighbors and friends each year. Here's a photo of one of the trays and the tags I made using Paptertrey Ink's Everyday Treats set.
Just as I was setting up to take some photos, Matt showed up and got interested in the project. By the time we finished the kitchen looked like a tornado had hit it, but we had a great time. Here are a few of our photos.
Double Mint Chocolate Chip
Snowballs (Russian Tea Cakes)
Sugar Cookies (always decorated by Dad)
White Chocolate Crunch
I hope you had time to relax for a day or two after the holidays. I've enjoyed being totally laid back with no where to go and nothing in particular to do for a few days.
