I almost always photograph our meals. I guess that’s just par for the course when you have a cooking blog – the food has to pose, get carefully arranged and placed, and then ptotographed before being devoured! Still, even though I’ve been blogging (mostly about food and cooking) for 5 years now, it seems strange to have more pictures of food than of my children! Yikes – now I sound like a bad Mom!

It’s amazing what you can do with an inexpensive camera and some natural light! Beautiful food-photos good enough to make one’s mouth water!

If you’ve never tried photographing your food, next time you cook an impressive meal, bust out your camera and snap away – just don’t forget to *also* take some pictures of your loved-ones enjoying it!
