Recently I had the pleasure of working with a new client CJ’s Favorites who brought me in to shoot their product line of cookies. They are a emerging company in the gourmet cookie and dessert market and wanted imagery that reflected a simple yet artistic take on what they provided.
With limited budget and an open direction we met to discuss the possibilities of what we could do in terms of photography, we set out to do some simple and “real” shots that were not gimmicky or boring, but did not detract from the food itself. We spent a day gathering props and ingredients for the shoot, and spent an entire day with the set, styling, lighting and image capture.
Of course during the shoot there was a lot of tasting and sampling and I can honestly say that they’re baking and recipes are delicious! I was impressed with the fact they use only the freshest ingredients and the recipes are handed down through their family from past generations. The ricotta chocolate chip (I beleive they name it the Heavenly Delight) and the pecan bars (Which have a touch of honey in them) are seriously sinful! I highly recommend visiting their website and ordering some of these delicious home made cookies yourself!
