basil pesto

As of lately, I’ve had some time to focus on adding new work to my portfolio. It’s been much needed after a busy year of traveling and I’m grateful to have the time to work on it. Don’t get me wrong, working on client projects are great and provide me with the ability to work for myself. It’s a fun collaboration between everyone, the client, creative directors, food & prop stylists, and myself. But sometimes it’s nice to have the studio to myself and let my creativity lead the way without the stress of time or meeting the expectations of other people.

For this shoot and the post coming shortly after this, I wanted to shoot something that would be light and bright with lots of color (and something that I could eat afterwards!). I love pesto and is a staple in my fridge. I use to eat red sauce on my pasta and pizza all the time, but I’m a converted pesto eater. I’ve made it a couple times, but have found that buying it pre-made tastes just as good and is a huge money & time saver.

So if you’re wondering if there’s a recipe to go along with the images, unfortunately not. I took a couple days to photograph all the ingredients individually to make small photo series out of each of them, adding even more variety to my portfolio which you can see here.

Ashley - Beautiful! I just made pesto today! I added parsley in mine and used raw pecans instead of pine nuts because that’s what I had. Yum <3
