Yogurt Breakfast Food Photography Process


I had a lot of yogurt for breakfast these past months after coming down with strep…twice. While I was eating it for all the good probiotics, there’s no reason you can’t dress it up! Berries are my favorite addition. Sometimes it’s frozen blueberries and raspberries, recently it’s been pomegranates (big YUM), and for this shoot I tried cranberries! Then I threw on some raisins, slivered almonds, and walnuts. If you want to go all out, drizzle some honey on top! Is your mouth watering yet? (;

To style these shots, I used some dishes I thrifted at the D.I. I also enjoyed trying different setups and angles, but my favorite was styling the overhead flat lay shots. I spent time arranging and rearranging and had a fun time figuring out how to best show off the yogurt. (Quick tip: When I tried to space our my raisins or other food items perfectly and evenly, it looked weird. I had a lot more luck just taking a handful and dropping it on the table. I then altered a few things, but found that that process made it look more natural. Here’s another example of another photographer who uses this technique.)  Editing was also a fun process because I tried more moody looks and brighter ones. Now let’s see how this shoot turned out!
