I recently had the pleasure of taking photos for local favorite Milton Quality Bakery. Family owned for decades and renowned for their donuts, they were just voted the sweetest bakery in Florida! For the second time in a row! Well deserved, their donuts are seriously delicious. They’ve got a delightful texture, more substantial than my guilty pleasure from a certain famous national donut chain.
To go with their continuing success, they wanted new photos for marketing. They’re running more Instagram ads and needed something to really grab users’ attention. In comes me and my experience as a food photographer these last two years. In the few hours I was there I was able to photograph almost their entire inventory, giving them a large library of photos to pull from for their digital content.
I bring with me a few tabletop options for clients to choose from, but I’m always ecstatic when they have a surface of their own that encapsulates their identity. Milton Quality Bakery had this almost monolithic wooden surface that just screamed out to me. Of course I had to setup shop there. Throw down some flour to make it look in use, a couple props, and you have yourself a compelling set.
