Food Photography Tips for Bloggers

If you’re looking for a few simple, but effective, food photography tips you’re in the right place. If you’re a blogger looking to take photos worthy of your killer recipe, creative styling, and personal flair, you’ll want to dig in. Personally, I’ve been blogging here for seven years and that means well, I’ve published a lot of images that are not that great. But that’s okay, let them live on–because well, improving is part of the journey (right?). Just don’t judge too harshly when you stumble upon a old post. HA.

Food Photography Tips for Bloggers

Party weekend recap

Since my very first blog post back in 2008, this blog (like my online relationships) has really flourished. Over the years I have made so many genuine connections with fellow party gals and bloggers that I can’t help but smile when I think about all of my online friends. This past weekend I was able to meet many of my old friends (and meet a ton of new ones!) in real life and am so thankful to have made such wonderful face-to-face connections and memories.

Many more photos and details to come in the next week (need to get some pictures downloaded first), but here’s a sneak peek at my weekend.

I headed down to sunny San Diego for the HWTM launch party {can’t wait to share the fab photos}

I met my super adorable roomie and long lost sister, Lisa {who happens to be full of style and grace}!

We toasted {many times over} to great friendships while taking in the great scenery {hello eye candy}

I learned it’s really tough to find late-night after party food if your diet is gluten free {like Lisa’s is}

I savored my morning coffee chat with long-time pal Chris {and can’t wait for next time}
