...photo shoot is a piece of "pie"


My friend Jo Packham -- creator of "Where Women Create" and "Where Women Cook" fame -- is putting together another book called "Pieography".

She put the word out asking for essays from women on "your life as a pie"...in other words, if you needed to analogize your life into the ingredients of a pie...what would yours be...Nutty? Something savory? Bittersweet?

I took Jo at her challenge and wrote the requisite 3oo word essay...though I cannot spill the beans on the specifics or the actual recipe of my "life as a pie" here -- you'll need to wait for the book to print to peek at that -- I can share with you the shoot that followed.

You see the "pie" has to have a real recipe to go with it! The pie has to be baked and photographed to accompany the essay...So we set to it this week...

I have a fab assistant who works for me 2 days a week, , Harold, aka the "kid henchman" who does my shipping, photo editing, etc, took on the baking challenge so I could shoot the photos...





Here are the results of my recipe...
"Iron Skillet Banana Pie"...

Sure it looks good...but it tastes better!
Here's my fave shot of the day....

You just never know what's cooking here at Earth Angels...but it does take a lot to pull it all together. Thanks to Harold for the assistance on this shoot...

Now, we are back to the regular schedule, but time for a snack first.
