Alrighty, I am going to do something I have never done before. So, bear with me as I reveal ALL THE BEHIND THE SCEENS. Trust me, there’s a reason I haven’t done this before… it ain’t pretty.
But this photoshoot was too comical (and slightly terrifying) not to share.
Since moving back in my parents house (until I get healthy enough to rely on my body to walk when I say walk and think when I say think), it has been a creative adventure to try and make airy bright food photos in a 12′ kitchen with dark brown log walls and counters and flooring from the 80’s.
All and all, it causes a lot of laughs (and tears!!), family bonding, and memories that will last a lifetime.
chaos? or art?… let’s just focus on the foods;)
I have had a lot of memories in this kitchen. Like the week I made these paleo waffles (you can read the story here).
But todays photoshoot out won them all with the finishing touch of my Dad’s snow boots hanging- used as a tripod weight. Want to see a sneak peak behind the scenes where all the action happens?
*Consider yourself warned: every creative venture takes a little… shall we say, creative ambiance?
My kitchen looked more like a scene from Yours Mine And Ours (childhood favorite!), where the mom is an artist that cannot function unless her studio is in utter chaos… except the fact that I hate functioning in chaos and am not a mother of eighteen.
See the behind the scenes photos
I hid them in text, because they were too embarrassing to post next to this lovely white aesthetic and spaghetti squash 😂😂😂😂.
*Pro photo tip (not): When you’re in a pinch use snow boots as a handing weight so you’re tripod doesn’t fall over and crush thousands of dollars worth of camera gear! 😂😂😂 See photo here
So moving onnnnn. Who wants some? Can you believe that this creamy bacon garlic spaghetti squash bake is whole30 compliant??? I mean, sign me up for a lifetime of that diet baby!
This recipe is incredibly easy to make and satisfies that craving for something rich and creamy (only without the rich cream 😉 ).
