Parfaits! {Photo Fridays}

My daughters absolutely love berries. Mostly strawberries and blueberries, sometimes raspberries and blackberries. And they love making smoothies or parfaits with berries. Who wouldn’t?! They are quite tasty, after all!

Today we actually made strawberry and mango smoothies, but truth be told, the girls were not willing to be patient and wait for me to get some photos! They just weren’t having any of it, and inhaled them before I could grab my camera upstairs! I think I even heard my little one say “ugh, brain freeze!”

But while we were making the smoothies, I remembered these shots of parfaits we made. I started thinking about some of the food photography posts I’ve written here and here, and how I’ve truly taken to heart the lesson I learned about getting so close to food shots that it’s like you’re about to take a bite!

As I was looking at these photos, I realized I took three very different shots – one at eye level, one at an angle (coming in for the bite!), and one (mostly) overhead. So my tip to you today, is to take 3 shots of your favorite subject – food, kids, flowers, toys, pets, etc – all at different angles. Above. Below. Behind. Eye-level. Sideways. Whatever it is that is out of your norm, try it! You might surprise yourself with what you find and be inclined to try it again!

If you end up getting something you love from this tip, please share a link in the comments below – I’d love to see!Β Thanks for stopping by. Have a joyful, creative, blessing filled day!
Live creatively!

PS. To make these, we just layer from the bottom up: Fage Greek yogurt (plain that’s been mixed with a dash of vanilla and honey), cut berries and granola. Repeat. Yum!
