Pink French Macarons from Mockingbird Cafe in Christiansburg

I never cook or bake (my oven was completely broken for almost 2 years and I got by just fine without it), but I was dying to try some food photography. Donna from Mockingbird Cafe in Christiansburg was so kind to whip up a batch of French macarons to photograph. Aren’t they gorgeous? They tasted just as heavenly as they look – I can neither confirm nor deny that I ate them all in one day. Styling and photographing food is a huge change of pace from portrait work (though I do get to practice a little of this at weddings), I would love to do more photos like this!
