Adventures in Blogging: a behind the scenes look into a blogging photo shoot

I’ve had a few friends ask me about the details of blogging. With this in mind, I thought I would share a behind the scenes look into what goes into a blog photo shoot. My boozy apple cider recipe with salted caramel whipped cream was my first “big” blog project so that photo shoot are what all these pictures are from.  

I am a messy cook. Actually, in general I tend to be a messy person. My mother is always frustrated with me when she comes over to my house while I am cooking. She wipes up little spills from the counter, and puts up ingredients when I am done with them. She insists upon a clean workspace. I get it. I totally respect that she has that ability. But I definitely don’t have the same ability. Sorry Mom, I know you tried. But, enjoy my mess and my sneak peak into what starting a blog entails.

My sister, Amy and I jerry-rigged a sheet as a white backdrop for our photos. The duct tape held just long enough for us to take pictures, then it started to fall down. We had many objects on the table that we played around with until we were satisfied with each finished scene.

Amy and I laughed a lot during this shoot. Sometimes we broke down into a little silliness, including a photobombing crocodile named “Moto.” We had fun. Which I think is one of the keys to the whole blogging thing. Learning new things and having fun are the reasons I started blogging in the first place anyway.
