{Caution: This post my make you drool on your keyboard}

I want to be a professional food photographer who takes pictures like the following…

found on to be charmed, all i can say is WOW! these lovely desserts were made and photographed by mowie of mowielicious. i totally could use one of those cake stands!

what’s for lunch, honey? i don’t know about lunch, but i will take a cup of mango and passionfruit tiramisu & a bowl of prosecco pears with blood orange mascarpone cream for dessert!

make your steamy kitchen smell delicious with a citrus shrimp cocktail & easter ham with mango ginger glaze

i love how la tartine gourmande has many colors and textures to her photos. gourmande is the french to describe anyone who cannot resist food, i think i’ll be using this word more often to describe myself.

Here is the current state of my food photography:

Some ways I could improve are to lighten up my photos and add fun props like flowers, colorful napkins, trays… yup, I have my work cut out for me…

…for now, I’m just taking one baby step at a time. 🙂

oh yea… evan’s also a gourmande, guess it runs in the family. 😉

(pictures of my nephew were taken by my sister-in-law, can’t wait to see them in 2 days, he’s growing up so fast!!!! the last time i saw evan was when i made cake pops for his 1st birthday party and he was still crawling!)
