Amy's Best Cookies is only 5.25 hours from Cookies Monster's home town, and I'm sure he would make the daily commute to enjoy the TLC that goes into these cookies.
I met Amy and at a BuyLocal gathering of other local businesses. We all laughed and played and hung out for what seemed to be only 30mins, but in fact was about 3 hours. I just got done shooting some food photography of Scratch Bakery down at Willard Square in South Portland Maine.
Amy talked about her cookies like I talk about photography and Espresso. Passion was clearly exploding and it was only a matter of time before she would hire us to capture her passion.
A couple days ago I met with Amy in her baking space. It's quaint. It's like a cottage on a lake. I could tell this space gets 4 seasons of light and today I would be hoping to get the sun bouncing off an adjacent building and into the main window, so I could make sure I keep the Medium Format Hasselblad H5D 50C and my 35mm Digital Sensor happy!
Amy is a small business and I love small business. I want to see her grow, so I gave her a promo code and sure glad she used it. I got a chance to watch her bake, and talk about her story.
We started her shoot in the baking area to capture her passion process, and then I took some very warm, just out of the oven, still steaming cookies back with me to my office for a quick studio session. As a photographer & creative director there is so much I want to do with a photo. I mean, I want to make create an image that I would see in Martha Stewart Magazine or on the Food Network website, but my clients budgets, don't always permit that. Small budgets put me in a position to be creative in whole new avenues. It's about taking great image of their product and make you want to eat it. I did a short session in my studio with some green glass, color cyc walls. These images will be used to Amy's website and marketing online. I hope you love them, and trust me when I say! Her cookies aren't something you just try, they are so good that they are the ones you leave out for Santa.
