Lauren Ko of @Lokokitchen creates stunning pies and pairs them with fantastic puns. She recently launched her first book Pieometry and Anthropologie tapped me to capture Lauren in action with some of their products for their blog and social. It was such a treat, no pun intended (or was there?) to get to photograph her at home while working on some of her beautifully baked designs.
Food photography is one of my absolute favorite things to do, there’s just something about getting to capture creative passionate people making magic in the kitchen. In this case, we got to do some environmental portraiture as well so we could see Lauren in action in her work space slicing the pears with care and assembling the pies and tarts just-so. To me this shoot encompassed the reason I love lifestyle photography, you get to have a real sense of a space and time as it took place. I’m incredibly grateful that we had the opportunity to spend the day taking yummy food images that celebrate Lauren’s skills. She’s the best y’all! Without further ado, here are more delicious pie making shots than you ever knew you needed. Hope they inspire you to check out Lauren’s book, fire up your ovens, put on those aprons, and go bake something delicious.
