When I got an email from one of the editors from Food & Home asking me if they could feature me as their food blogger of the month – I jumped up and down (there may have been a little impromptu dance session that happened). It then dawned on me that my face would be in a magazine – eeeek….It is a weird concept that my website has my heart and soul (and my face) all over it but suddenly having a picture of yourself printed on paper in a magazine that you have a subscription to, makes me self-conscious and nervous. The ladies at Food & Home were so lovely and supportive through the whole process – acting very excited about my recipes and my dogs :). They told me that the magazine would hit the shelves mid-February.
Yesterday my mom watsapped me a picture of the feature in print in the magazine in her hand. I had not seen it yet but as all good moms do she was singing my praises to the world of my magazine feature. Needless to say, I dashed to the shop (there was no walking involved) and bought myself a copy or two – it took a lot of self-control to not show the lovely teller that I was in a magazine (I was THAT excited).
This month has been fraught with self-doubt about where I am taking my photography to, but yesterday I gave myself a tap on the back when I saw my pictures in a magazine I LOVE. It renewed my faith in my ability and confirmed the passion I have for my food photography. Thank you Food & Home for featuring me in your beautiful magazine. Thank you to my family for being my biggest fans always! I love you all.
