I spent about two weeks earlier this month posting only light and bright images on Instagram. I wanted to show people that I could create these images. I’ve had people ask me, specifically if this is something in my wheelhouse.
So I went on this spree of posting all these light and bright and happy photos. I went back through all my archives and found all of them and I’m pretty happy to show them to the world. And to be honest, I kind of hated it because as much as I CAN work in light and bright and happy photos, it’s not MY happy place.
So as soon as I finished the run of nice and happy images, I (happily) reverted to my dark and moody imagery. It felt better. It felt like ME!
And I was so very, very lucky to return to the darkness with this beautiful cakes from Lovewell Baking Company – this gorgeous blood orange and olive oil miniature cakes.
They are beyond. I messaged her as I gathered up a few ingredients: What makes them so pink?
“The blood oranges – nothing more.” She responded.
I understood as soon as I squeezed a few of them. Vibrant, intense, starling dark.
This girl is so talented, so bright and loving. It’s amazing she lets me create such moody and evocative pictures that still somehow reflect her light.
You can order these miniature cakes and any of here work by visiting her web site.
And if you need me, I’ll be here playing in the shadows. In my happy place.
