One of the last jobs I was booked for before taking my maternity leave was The Food Champions Project for the The National Lottery and The English Institute of Sport. So on a rainy winter day last December I hauled all my gear (and my sizeable 8 month pregnant bump) up to London for an epic two day, 40 recipe, shoot.
Back in late summer I was commissioned by the Guild of Master Craftsmen to do the photography for their Superfood Christmas Magazine (yup, shooting Christmas images in the summer – the strange life of a food photographer!).
A few pics from a recent summer commercial photo-shoot, featuring a gorgeous iced lavender cake and an incredibly stunning country house garden. Late afternoon sunlight in mid summer is just so perfect!

If you’re suffering from a cold then I’ve got just the thing to pep you right up. This infusion is so simple to make and includes a huge kick of ginger, a squeeze of fresh lemon and a good spoonful of delicious soothing honey. Sadly this drink won’t cure your cold, but it will fill your sickly bod with lots of lovely natural ingredients. It tastes pretty good too!
It’s been another busy and varied year for me so far, with a lot of interesting and challenging commissions. I’ve had the opportunity to work with some fantastic people, as well as a few more big brands and I’ve learnt A LOT!
I’ve also had a few more magazine features, including a huge feature in The Simple Things magazine, who commissioned me to do an ‘insiders guide’ to Brighton. Shooting for the feature was a lot of fun, and i thought I’d share some of the images with you, including some that didn’t make it into the magazine.
Hope you enjoy a bit of summery Brighton!
Mass slaughter, gushing blood and decapitated cherubs; those aren’t the usual images that spring to mind when I’m talking about cake, but that was exactly what I got on a recent shoot for Choccywoocydoodah.
I don’t normally post much of my commercial work here on the blog, but this recent shoot was too good not to share!
At this time of year my go-to breakfast is porridge, usually with a honey and a sprinkling of seeds on top. But when I fancy a change I like to make up a big batch of whoesome Bircher Muesli. Continue reading “Bircher Muesli”
I love all the colours of summer, especially when in the form of gorgeous fruit and veg. These tomatoes are some of my Mum’s homegrown beauties, the very last of the season. So vivid and totally delicious served with fresh basil and torn mozzarella. Continue reading “Last of the summer veg”
I’ve tried to grow figs myself but I’ve found that you really need an extended period of lovely hot weather for them to ripen properly, inside and out. And in England, the only thing you can pretty much guarantee are long periods of rain, wind and cold.
