here are simply two little plants that i drew.
This past weekend I had the distinct pleasure of attending Aran Goyoaga's Food + Capture workshop with Sunday Suppers. Aran taught us about her process of cooking, styling and photographing the culinary world around her. It was a combination of boundless creativity and business chat, which made for a uniquely inspiring day.
Authenticity is Aran's guiding principle. Her styling is true to the food's natural state, and she is not overly fussy about the plating. She uses natural lighting in her photography, only subtly enhanced with Lightroom in post. Even her business philosophy centered on being true to her personal values and creative goals. We talked about using social media to create an authentic story while still curating a beautiful feed, in order to get work. It's not an easy balance to strike, but I think time and again we are reminded that the more authentically ourselves we are, the more we will be rewarded for it.
Authenticity as a creative philosophy and business ethos creates a powerful union between two often opposing ideas
on international women's day i think of all the women I have met throughout my life that have been badass, strong, and smart as well as loving, kind, and supportive. they have provided examples of every way that a woman can be, and shown me we are not confined by the roles assigned to us in the past and in the present, and the ways in which we can create our own future. may we all continue to be examples for one another, stand up for those who may not be able to, and show up everyday as the exact woman we were born to be.
HERE ARE SOME THINGS I LOVE THAT ARE MADE BY, RUN BY, WRITTEN BY WOMEN:
