Photo highlights from my bridal shower…to include homemade cupcakes from my mom, gorgeous flower arrangements from my aunt, sushi, creative gifts, macaroons from NYC as favors, and a fun postcard idea! Photo credit goes to my 12 year old niece Molly for the top middle shot with me in it :)

I am just about the worst blogger…I have been bogged down by my full time job, my side photography job, plus a move to my fiancé’s house, wedding planning and now jury duty! So, its been a bit busy lately…

However, I have been posting away on LinDC Photography’s Facebook page and will continue to do so! At some point, I will actually get a real website and blog for my professional work…

Onto the point of this post…I have driven by Pie Sisters in Georgetown so many times, but today is the first time I’ve stopped. I haven’t eaten my purchases yet (cherry, apple and lemon cream cuppies – clearly, I am sharing), but I loved the shop and they had great selections.  Check it out!

Yep, you read that right…marshmallows flavored with Guinness. I bet these would be delicious floating in a hot cup of coffee with Bailey’s or in hot chocolate. I will be sure to try that and report back…

Find them here to try it for yourself!

Today, I had my first official food photo shoot. 

A college teammate of mine (we both rowed crew) recently launched a gourmet marshmallow company, The Karen Mary Co., with her talented husband. Since I have been wanting to practice my food photography, I asked her if she would be willing to let me experiment and practice with their marshmallows. Luckily, they were very patient with me as I staged shots and took photos for 2+ hours today all the while sampling their amazing flavors (Vanilla Chai, Lemon, Strawberry, Chocolate Covered Caramel Vanilla with Sea Salt and more!)…go to the website and check out the goods.  They really are amazing!

We got the following flavors from Fleurir

85%, Peanut Butter Banana, Caramel and Lemon Honey. So far I’ve had the Peanut Butter Banana and it was amazing.

Hand grown chocolates – need I say more? Stay tuned for actual chocolate shots. I thought the packaging was so pretty, it deserved its own post.

Fleurir Chocolates (click for more info), the store, is on P Street in Georgetown.
