For my first ever blog post, I thought I would share something that means a huge amount to me! There are many things I would like to achieve in my life and one of them was to do the photography for a cookbook. As you can imagine, I might have done a little happy dance when the lovely Juliet Robb from the Long Track Pantry in Jugiong called me and told me that she was working on a book with Cathie Bragg and wanted me to take the images. OMG!!!!! Now usually the top food photographers only do 6 to 8 different shots a day, we did over 20! Thankfully I had the styling skills of Jo Miller to help me over the two days of jam packed yumminess.
Juliet has three beautiful children who made fantastic little models and they had a lovely time eating lots of jellies, biscuits and cakes. I adore the shot of the two hiding in the garden being sneaky biscuit thieves.
Copies of the cookbook Farm Café can be purchased in store or online, just visit www.longtrackpantry.com.au. I can highly recommend the Cooininee orange cake and rustic baked bean recipes. Mmmmm delicious!
