seeing as it’s friday and “in the kitchen” day, it only seems appropriate to share a sneak peek of the kitchen of food photographer lara ferroni. you may remember her from her great toasted sesame and vanilla ice cream recipe she shared on d*s a couple months ago where the pictures look as delicious as the food itself (and is majorly making me crave ice cream right now!). lara has a small studio based out of her home, and this is where all the cooking and styling happens. she’s super lucky to have such amazing natural light. thanks to lara for sharing pictures of her home today! if you’re looking for something for dinner tonight, check out lara’s other sites cook and eat and still life with. -anne

Most of these have come from friends plants… a few I’ve managed to start from grocery store purchases.]lf2.jpga few of my props… including stacks of various bread boards I’ve found (usually ebay), a few catherine holm pieces, mint julep cups, flatware, bottles with little fake cherry blossoms, piles of linens.lf3.jpglf4.jpga few of my props… including stacks of various bread boards I’ve found (usually ebay), a few catherine holm pieces, mint julep cups, flatware, bottles with little fake cherry blossoms, piles of linens.lf5.jpgThe house is filled with light… tons of leaded glass windows in every room. My studio has southern and western light, which is my primary light source for my photography.

I really love these shots! They are beautifully simple, yet still “tell” Lara’s story so well. Thanks so much for sharing. And I think I need to go get some ice cream now…:-)

Hmmm…I wish we could see more. Maybe some long shots? Everything is cropped so tightly! I’d love to see the rooms.

Oh, how I adore Lara… she is one of my favorite bloggers/photographers/food-oriented people. And oh, her home is absolutely lovely!

Thanks all! Glad you enjoyed the shots… I’m not much of an architectural photographer… so sorry there are so few wide shots. I’m kind of a vingette kinda gal.

Anyway – the cherry blossoms were from Pottery Barn. I think I got them in February, but they shouldn’t be too hard to find.
