For the second year in a row we spent a long weekend in Seaside, Oregon toward the end of February. And for the second year in a row we had great weather. The drive was wet and Sunday night got cold enough in Astoria that we bundled up and drank hot chocolate, but otherwise it was perfect. The beaches were packed, as were the streets of Canon Beach, where we shopped and visited our favorite Oregon distillery.
To go along with the on-white hero shots of their products our Bakery client had us create a collection of styled shots. We photographed scones, muffins, pretzel rolls, bear claws, and cinnamon rolls. We were especially tasked to show the difference in sizes between the large and mini muffins and scones, and to show the variety of muffins and scones they sell.
We used a variety of plates, baskets, and sets for these images. Unlike our photos of the holiday cookies where we used holiday decorations to emphasize the themes, we styled a majority of these items similar to how they might be served, complete with napkins and cups of coffee.
For the pretzel rolls we went one step further and turned the rolls into hamburger and sandwich buns, and then plated those items with potato chips and beer.
The client was very happy with all the images and used them for both printed flyers and on their website.
