Behind the Scenes: Photo Shoots

Behind the Scenes: Photo Shoots

When Ceri and I started Sweet Potato Chronicles, like most bloggers, we took all our own photos. As former editors at FASHION magazine, we were used to being around cameras and making beautiful images. However, we weren’t used to being in charge of the actual camera. It’s a whole different world that we can still use some help mastering. O.K. lots. You don’t have to rub it in.  However, we do have the most wonderful good fortune to work with Photographer Maya Visnyei. Each month, we cram a ton of cooking with the kids into one or two afternoons. Whether we’re in one of our homes or a studio, Maya rolls with the punches. (Some times there are actual punches from kids or an inappropriate line of questions. Why do kids ask the most personal things of people they don’t know well?) It’s never easy shooting with young kids but Maya’s quiet demeanor and patient personality make her the perfect match for the SPC bunch. To see more beautiful images by Maya please visit her website.

Not many professional photographers would let a four year old take command of thousands of dollars worth of camera equipment. Here Scarlett takes over the styling and shooting of our Blueberry Brownie Cookies.
