I made this smoothie (and took these pictures) last Sunday when we saw the first sunny skies after what felt like an eternity of grey ones. I decided to snap the photos on our patio since the outdoor light was so gorgeous. These photos also give you a little sneak peak into what my shoots actually look like. I was at a friend’s apartment earlier this week and someone asked me where I shoot my photos, thinking I had some gorgeous space in my apartment. I wish! It’s usually on a cloth on my living room floor. Admittedly that was getting a little dull, so it’s a nice change of pace to be able to shoot outdoors.
Are you a smoothie drinker? I just started drinking them this winter when I was positively sick of the fruit selection in the store. I don’t eat too many frozen foods, but peach and berry season is so frustratingly short, I’ve really gotten into stocking up on the frozen variety. There’s something about the color of this smoothie that is so refreshing. Now that a new fruit season is right around the corner, I’m looking forward to making some smoothies using actual fresh fruit!
I hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend! I’m so excited my mom’s coming to town and we get to have a proper celebration! See you next week. xx
