I should have known my habit of playing with my food, plus having a camera with a remote shutter release, would one day lead to this.
Inspired by one of my favorite foodies of all time, Laura Miller of Sidesaddle Kitchen (famous for her quirky instagraming), I took my first fruit and vegetable selfie thinking “hey, that looks fun!” And you know what? It IS fun. A lot of fun.
Getting in front of the camera is definitely a bit of an adjustment, especially when you’re used to being on the other side of things, but when you’re home, alone, with a couple of melons, or citrus fruit, or teeny tiny bananas… what are you going to do?
I first started sharing these food portraits on social media, but as my collection started growing, I decided it was best to put them all in one place. Seeing them all lined up like this is a little scary, but hey… this is the real, totally goofy, me.
If you have any suggestions for food you’d like to see me use, shoot me an e-mail over on my contact page. I’d love to hear from you!
