Ever wondered how some people get those morning flapjacks so fluffy and perfectly cooked? I remember YEARS of making pancakes that were too runny and burnt, too thick and raw in the middle… you all know how it goes (right!?). Well, I was determined to find the secret to this madness. Turns out, it’s seriously easy. Just swap milk with greek yogurt!!! It worked like a charm for me ;) Check out some fun styling below and happy flap-jacking!
Antler Baking Co is located right inside the downtown location of Woods Coffee on Prospect street in the very cool Flatiron building! This girl has a whole corner to herself to show off her beautiful baked goods. During this session we focused on a few key menu items: chocolate chip cookie sandwiches with espresso marscapone and old Buskers liquor, fresh lemon cake with rhubarb puree and layered with strawberries and marscapone frosting, plus my personal favorite- the dark chocolate cake with earl grey chiffon and sea salt caramel. I mean HOLY SMOKES. It was so fun to really hone in on the different textures of each of these treats and we were able to do everything studio-style onsite at her lovely storefront! It didn’t take much to make these desserts even more tempting!
If you’re interested in a session like this- reach out! I would love to show off your delicious foods, too.
The 2018 issue of Bellingham Alive’s Winter Fashion magazine was SO much fun to be a part of! I loved the neutral color scheme with pops of colors and FEATHERS! Lisa Karlberg hand crafted all of the feather wardrobe pieces herself and handpicked the outfits and accessories from local businesses. Find the entire list of participating shops below! You can find this issue on store shelves near you until the end of December!
The Heliotrope Hotel is a little gem located just minutes from downtown Bellingham offering easy access to all sorts of Pacific Northwest fun. It’s right on the bus line and walking distance to all sorts of local businesses- it makes for a great jumping off point for whatever your adventurous heart desires. It’s also the perfect spot for a unique kind of wedding day! Friends and family can all stay in the newly renovated rooms and the pavilion is the perfect size for a smaller wedding ceremony. This session was meant to feature just that- an all day adventure starting and ending at the Heliotrope Hotel!
I loved working with this awesome team of vendors to really show off the unique and colorful aspects of the Heliotrope. We wanted to show how a couple might utilize this space and take full advantage of the central location. These two started the day off with a hike with their dog (the hotel is dog friendly, too!) before coming back to get ready for their celebration! You’ll see photos in the hotel rooms that are full of natural light, shots of their bridal party on the property with all kinds of bright and geometric backdrops as well as ceremony and reception photos. Everything took place right onsite which is what really makes this venue special. Everything is all in one place and you can spend the time with your guests relaxing and enjoying yourself!
Every single one of the businesses involved in this shoot are LOCAL and AWESOME. We all specialize in weddings and events and can help make your day special, too. Absolutely check each one of them out if you’re on the lookout for vendors of your own!
