Food styling seems to have really hit new heights in popularity. Whilst styling on the whole seems to be ever pervading in the world of Instagram, social media and generally everywhere, food styling has gone off with a major aplomb as it were!
Not a day can go by without a reality show, celebrity chef or your latest food blogger showing you how, what or where to eat and personally I’m all up for that. It seems there has been a mighty push to make bake and create at home for yourself or for guests more now than ever before. Not to mention a major push to change our eating habits into something a little more moderate and to be quite honest, well post Christmas and the January hoorah, I’m definitely ready to make a few changes!!
I recently styled some food shots for a beautiful greeting card company called Affirmations. So much fun playing with food and creating beautiful imagery that will be turned into gift cards and have an awesome luscious food inspired quote on them for the giving. So lucky to be part of such a really beautiful job!
