Hello everyone! My name is Emma and I am a foodie, blogger and soon-to-be registered nutritionist. I am all about healthy, nutritious food that tastes amazing so I love sharing recipes and that is what you will find me photographing most of the time. I share these recipes and photos regularly on my blog, Essentially Emma, and also on my Instagram account.
I enjoy food photography because of how creative you can get with styling the food and the backdrop, it really can make a difference and make a recipe pop. Plus getting to eat it afterwards is always a perk!
My Favourite Photo Boards
I love the FARMHOUSE board because of its beautiful, rustic texture. It is perfect for dishes that I want to look comforting and inviting - just like dishes that would be served up on a farmhouse table!
SMOKEHOUSE is a gorgeously deep colour that just makes the colours in food really pop. I love using it for rich, colourful dishes or when I want to take a seriously moody photo with some cool lighting.
WHITEWASHED is such a bright and fresh backdrop that is ideal for light dishes that are fresh and summery. The texture is also just enough to add a little something to photos, but not so much that it overpowers simple dishes. I also love it as a backdrop to my recipe videos!
