Life seems to send signs and guides; if we take a moment to listen: When Sydney and I began Bobbie’s Baking Blog it was as a tool to keep us in touch by a common passion. In all honesty I was having a hard time letting go of a friend, daughter, and business partner, the blog eased the emptiness. We could bake the same treats at the same time. When Sydney transferred back to Colorado she became inthralled with food styling; she was a natural. The food began to have personality, it literally jumped off the page dancing with palatability . Look at the care that goes into adding poinsettia to The Cranberry Bundt Cake
I watched as both my blog and Sydney changed; with an array of beauty and confidence . Sydney is a natural, I sometimes stand in awe as I watch her change something tiny; this changes the entire story of the photo. She intuitively understands the picture and what I am want the food to visually express.
I was apprehensive as we moved from natural light to studio light, but after the first food photo session she was in her element. Sydney’s invaluable knowledge of what I in-vision and meticulous nature are the perfect combination. We will have a discuss of the layout prior to setting the scene; by the time the layout is ready for its photo session she has designed a breathe taking scene. I feel as if we are seasoned dancing partners able to follow each other’s steps. As we designed The Cranberry-Pomegrante Marshmallows scene she innately knew putting the little cranberries around the plate and throughout out the scene would draw your eyes to the marshmallows.
I admire her spunk and her willingness to take calculated risks with our photos. She moved that pear at least four times till the angle was correct; an accent to the photo without competing with The Caramelized Pear Tart .
As a mother I am delighted to see such passion pour from her brain; as her business partner and creator of the food I feel fortunate my creations are in superb caring hands!
