Finding the Light

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that it's winter in Seattle. These cold gray skies, blustery wind, and the constant drizzle has really been taking its toll on me. I feel like my body has no choice but to shift gears (rather quickly and against its will) into this new season. I've always had a hard time adjusting to the seasonal shift, but man, this year is different. In good ways (very good ways, actually) and not so good.
Life recently has been a mix of constant states of exhaustion, periods of complete and utter excitement, and times of unrelenting worry. Oh and did I mention there has been very little sunshine? This crazy beautiful time in my life is precisely why I haven't been here on the blog much. And I sincerely hope that changes very soon. Finding inspiration in the kitchen again, even on these cloudy days, will help.
I happened to have a day filled with light recently. Yesterday, actually. You see, yesterday I spent the day learning all about food photography and styling from the incredible Aran Goyoaga, writer of the award winning blog, Cannelle et Vanille (you absolutely must look at her's beyond beautiful). She taught me how to capture the light in my photos. Even if it's cloudy and gray outside, there will always be enough light to make a beautiful photo. Besides being an inspiring educational photography class, it was also deeper than that. It taught me to appreciate the beauty in the grayness. Because really, the gray makes you appreciate the light that much more.

  1. Vitamin C is very much needed to make you look fresh and also increases your hemoglobin level. Orange and grapefruit are the best examples of vitamin C rich foods.
