This photo comes from one of my earliest blog posts, “Strawberry Shortcake, Huckleberry Pie,” and one of my first photo sessions documenting the baking process, setting out props and using the lovely natural daylight that I hadn’t really been using before, previously only shooting dinner dishes at night. It was the first time I felt like I was really starting to progress with learning how to use my camera to take better food photos.

Last one! This one’s pretty cute, right? © Sugar + Shake

This is also one of my very favorite cookie recipes. I happen to have some leftover strawberries from making sangria last weekend…I think they should become cookies.
