The national healthy magazine, MindBodyGreen, featured my photography in this article. And other national and international magazines featuring my recipes are linked below as well. It’s alway an honor to share my recipes with a wider healthy-eating focused audience.
So grateful to MindBodyGreen Magazine for featuring me first in “Instagram Stars Spill Their Secrets“.
Dee Dine of Green Smoothie Gourmet says “A popular food photograph for Instagram usually tells a story. I try to do this with lighting, color, props, presentation, and motion.
In this parfait, the bright light creates a clean mood; the black background contrasts and accentuates the black chia seeds; the red strawberries provide a spark of warm color; the scattered ingredients and leaning glass top create depth and texture.
By blurring additional parfaits in the background and partially out of sight, it implies abundance, several people served and plenty for everyone.
Finally, I also try to include impending motion in my food with a full spoon or an item perched precariously. It can be mesmerizing, imagining the movement. In this parfait, I did that by balancing a huge dollop of cream with sticky granola bits, giving the feel of an impending toppling, or a soon-to-be puncturing of this billowy top with a spoon.”
