Ahhh.. I am so excited! The weekend that I’ve been waiting for 3 months for is finally here! I’m heading to the Food Photography Workshop hosted by the beautiful Sarah from Broma Bakery and I cannot wait.
So I’m celebrating by sharing a sweet new strawberry smash cocktail with you!
Cocktails are literally my new favorite thing to make for the blog and I have a ton that I’ve made recently and shot that are in the queue waiting to be posted to the blog.
Will you be mad at me if some of my summer cocktails end up being posted in the fall? Or should I just wait to post them next summer?
Yes, I have that many.
Meh… we’ll see what happens.
I hate having recipes waiting in the queue for more than a month or two (unless they’re super seasonal) because then it just doesn’t feel as authentic when I post them.
Anyway, this weekend is my first food photography workshop and I could not be more excited. I’ve been feeling a little stagnant lately in my photography.
Obviously not in the cocktail department… I mean, just look at that gorgeousness. Haha
But in the savory and dessert department. I used to feel really confident shooting cookies and not I just feel blah.
Same with all the dinners I make for the family that end up here also. I just feel like all the styling is looking the same and I just need a little refresh.
I need to be around other creatives and photographers and watch and learn from other people. I think it’s nice to learn from others and see their creative thought process.
Plus I get to get out of the house for a few days and have some girl time with my good friend, Mary!
So cheers to an amazing week and weekend!
