I recently spent the weekend in Seattle. As you might guess it was a weekend all about food and photography. It was a classic Spring weekend in the Pacific Northwest. Torrential downpours, beautiful sunshine and some cool wind thrown in for good measure. It felt very much like Vancouver in many ways but distinctly Seattle in others.
The reason for the trip was to assist at a food photography and styling workshop with food stylist and photographer Aran of Cannelle et Vanille and prop stylist Chelsea of Frolic in Aran’s studio in Seattle. I had seen many photos of Aran’s studio on her blog and Instagram but it was so fun to spend time in the studio. It is simple and simply beautiful. Props artfully arranged in the kitchen, pretty photos on the walls and of course lovely, lovely light.
It is always a pleasure to be in Aran’s presence and see her work with ease and grace. She creates such beauty with food. There is always more to learn from her. It was also fun to meet Chelsea and learn about prop styling and her creative process.
I was happily busy in the kitchen in the morning with Ally getting food ready for lunch and and the styling portion of the workshop and had time to snap a few photos in the afternoon. These first ones are from a pretty Spring scene that Aran and Chelsea styled.
