Claire's Confections

One of the great perks of friendship is getting to see that person's talent shine, and in the case of my dear friend Claire, we get to be bystanders of her tasty treats!! Photographing food is new for me, but it's something I've been drawn to over the last year. I'm intrigued by the props, angles, lighting, composition and well....the food! 

Since Claire and I are both finally in the same town, I traded dinner for sweets that I might do them some percentage of justice as to how yummy they are! Because scratch and sniff internet isn't a thing yet, I couldn't quite convey just how terrific her dishes smelled and tasted, but I hope I did her talents justice in photo form!

A couple words... whipped cream I've ever had

...that black cherry cinnamon roll frosting is no joke and highly addictive

Take a look!
