foodie photography.

one of my oldest and dearest friends, jessica, is one talented gal.

don’t we look like sisters? or cousins, at least?

she recently graduated from oklahoma state university (go pokes!) with a degree in advertising, and her deepest passion in that area is photography. i have the pleasure of getting to live with jess and some other lovely ladies in the affectionately termed bennett house this summer before i jet off to quebec. last month, jessica snapped some photos of me for my prayer cards – she did a phenomenal job!

this month, we’ve been trying out some new recipes with one another. the second best part (besides chowing down, of course) is taking pictures of our creations before we dig in. my little digital camera just wouldn’t do these dishes justice, and i have jessica to thank for capturing them with her canon rebel xs. here are a few of her photographs, along with links to their recipes!

behold, i give you baked lemon pasta. this is one of my favorite pioneer woman recipes yet! lemon, parsley, and pasta – it doesn’t get much better.

we also decided to get swanky and eat our scrumptious dinner on the patio. and what outdoor summer supper would be complete without iced tea?

and these, my friends, are pineapple cupcakes. i can’t lie: we did use a boxed mix for the little cakes themselves, but the glaze on top is an entirely homemade concoction from yours truly. what was intended to be a creamier icing evolved into this sweet and fruity glaze, thanks to a minor error on my part. who knew that messing up would turn out so delightfully? our cupcakes were a big hit at last night’s get-together with some girlfriends, and the leftovers have been picked off at our office.

    Those were the best cup cakes I have ever had. Keep up the good job girls. I think you girls are ready to start your Cup Cake company.

  2. mmm… just looking at those pictures makes me hungry! Too bad Ram ate all the cupcakes at work :). Thanks for the encouraging words Taylor! You’re my favorite look-a-like sister! Forget the part about cousins!

    Now I think of you two really look like sisters. Even your smiles are similar except for Taylor has a bigger smile :)

  5. Food photography can be really tricky, so nice job. The baked lemon pasta looks great!

  6. Really, both are lovely. ^.^
