There’s something about fall that makes me extra sentimental.
I think about the start of school… Growing up we started after Labor Day, not the first week of August like my boys have to endure.
I think of field trips to the Texas State Fair… It always seemed to rain on our designated day off from school.
I think of baking pies with my grandmother… She was notorious for doing a test-baking before Thanksgiving.
I think of returning home from college and how wonderful my mom made the house smell with something freshly baked coming from the kitchen.
There are certainly many more memories. I find that many of my memories are centered around food. I guess that’s just a reflection on our family traditions linked to food . . . and my own preoccupation with eating.
And now? Well, this fall seems a little bit like any other fall. The trees are beautiful here in Nashville. It’s been kind of wet weather. At home, we’re getting geared up for lots of baking in November and December. At work, we’re working with clients on 2016 promotional food photography and some spring editorial work. Thanksgiving seems like a distant memory since we were in turkey mode a couple of months ago work-wise.
Today, I thought I’d take the idea of fall as an excuse to show some fall-ish food photography. The food styling on these is by Nashville food stylist Whitney Kemp. We did these images for fall 2014 but can just now show you since much our work is under a probationary period of six to twelve months. Unfortunately, we can’t show 2015 images yet. We’ll have to wait until next year.
In the meantime, happy fall to you. Eat well. – Kyle
