Snap goes the Dragon…

I had this sitting in my drafts folder and never posted it, from October 2017 Snapdragons! I have not seen these in a very long time, I seem to remember them from my childhood, perhaps from a story, a book a movie, or perhaps one of my Grandmother’s grew them? I honestly cannot recall. These,…

Fresh as a Freeshia

I took these photos back in October and never got around to publishing this post, I guess now is as good a time as any… I saw these freesias the other day and thought they looked for crisp and fresh, reminded me that Spring is just around the corner. Mind you these may well have…

A rose by any other name…

A rose by any other name, would it smell so sweet? There are lots and lots of very pretty flowers, with the most beautiful perfume, but roses are still held in such high regard. I am not complaining, I do adore the flowers, just not the bush, nor the thorns! I spent a few minutes with…

Giant Floral Arrangements

I was very fortunate recently to have the opportunity to photograph these amazing and beautiful floral arrangements created by the talented girls at Desflora Flowers Can you believe that they are all artificial flowers? Desflora have the most stunning array of artificial flowers in the store, they have also created floral crowns for some of my…

Pretty in Pink…

Hello, I’m back with another post and some more beautiful flowers, I think these are a type of cosmos, or perhaps a small gerbera? Apologies, I am no flower expert, but they are so pretty with just a blush of pink. A lovely timber backdrop from MiniBackdrops, and an old timber crate, some scissors, twine,…

Gerbera

It’s been quite a while since I posted anything, just been really hectic. Today I managed to spend a few minutes with this pretty Gerbera. ~ Julz, xo

Smile…

I have been on a bit of a food photography bender of late, haven’t I? Need to get back to some flowers I think. Just thought I’d leave you with some sweet treat candies on this cold Winters Tuesday. ~ Julz, xo

A little Mondayitis?

Hello my Friends, It’s Monday again………perhaps these gorgeous cupcakes hold a cure for Mondayitis? Is that even a real thing? Is it a real word lol… Front and center a banana passion fruit gluten and dairy free vegan cupcake………being the good wifey I am, I gave it to Hubby, he said it was delicious 😦…

Carnival of Cupcakes

Hello my Friends, welcome to fabulous Friday, I thought I might celebrate with Cupcakes……look at these lovelies, are they not absolutely decadent? Double Chocolate, passion-fruit banana, French vanilla and blueberry, coconut and pandan, just to name a few of the flavours. Apparently each was divine. There was a vegsan, Gluten Free and Dairy Free one…

Mad for Macarons, Part 2

After the workshop I managed to get a little bit more time with the late afternoon sunshine and the left over macarons from my Food Photography workshop Just divine and the light is so different from earlier in the day, almost warm Summer type light, rather than the cold blue light I had in the…

Mad for Macarons, Part 1

Now macarons are quite different from macaroons, but the fact is, I can’t actually eat either; dairy and egg. That doesn’t stop me from having a wee bit of fun with them. These were bought for a recent food photography workshop and I decided to have a bit of fun with my Tamron 90mm Macro…

Milk and Cookies

One of my favorite still life photos I have taken was one for Milk and Cookies, so simple but it was wonderful, so on the weekend I thought that I would try another setup, slightly different and with a darker toning to it……….still simple chocolate chip cookies and milk……..but it looks so familiar, and comforting…
