Little Missy Patisserie

We have been fond regulars of Little Missy Patisserie since it first opened, with awesome coffee & delicious savoury & sweet treats, what’s not to like? Everyone is so friendly & it has a gorgeously homely feel. We feel like old friends now & felt it would be ok to ask if we could take our “real cameras” in for a photo shoot this morning. Oonagh was so lovely & agreed to our favour, she is such an amazingly talented pastry chef.

So my foodie chef friend & photography study buddy Ellie joined me for the shoot. (read her blog post & she her photos here)

I arrived a bit early so had to have a coffee & suss out the conditions (plus test out my new lens!!)

Kev's coffee

OK there was a brief quiet moment with not too many customers, a great opportunity to shoot the delicious goats cheese, heirloom tomato & fresh basil tart, just as I’m styling it a guy comes in with these gorgeous mini yellow tomatoes (I have forgotten the variety) perfect timing!!

Ellie arrived & styled up the scene, we just knew we had to take out a slice & have that for breakfast later (after taking it’s photo another million times!)Tart 2

Should we do more savouries? No we need to do the sweets!!

Let’s get our lemon brûlée tart action shot with the blow torch, I am so excited I can’t hardly breathe!!

So now that is done & I’ve calmed down a bit, we have selected out the food to be shot, styled & eaten over the next hour or so.

Sweet Treats

We felt very privileged to be able to use the “special fork”. Another great reason this is the perfect place for a photo shoot is their gorgeous collection of vintage plates, cutlery & tea pots. Food styling heaven!

The blackberry & hazelnut dome I’m sure it has a much fancier name that I will find out & update for you 🙂

Which shot of these 3 is your favourite?

And chocolate & coffee what better way to finish up? Note to selves make sure you only order 1 coffee at a time not 2 at a time, because they don’t look as fresh after you have taken 10 million shots!! Chocolate
