black berry bite sized cheese cake 

It's really hard for me to believe that photo shoots and styling are part of my life. I never thought that was within the realm of possibilities as a dietitian or blogger! But here we are, 3 or 4 photo-shoots within a single month later...and I'm hooked. I can't wait to do the next one and use this rapid fire experience to get better and better. 

I'm excited to share this big photo-shoot on Swooned today with the theme Edible Flowers in a brunch setting.  I went with a very French country field in Spring feel...lots of antique pewter (thanks Mom and Dad!), wood, neutrals and bark. As far as edible flowers, we used:

  • Violas
  • Mustard Flowers
  • Garlic Flowers
  • Roses
  • Sweet Peas (note: not all varieties are edible!)
  • Micro Greens
  • Micro Vegetables

See the full shoot on Swooned!
