luisabrimble 13 weeks ago we were shooting for @theflourybaker's website. Today Anna opened her new online provision store - theflourybaker.com.au. I'd like to give 3 people a chance to sample some meals from @theflourybaker shop. So go and check her website and in your comment below let me know which of the meals you want to try. I will randomly select 3 people from the comments. Food styling by @johnmangila • Branding by @paperandephemera • Website by @jasminwong @wildthymesweetpea of Millet Studio. 2d

luisabrimble I love it when I get to do a shoot with people who are passionate about what they do and like to share. Sometimes I get to learn new things too. These are possibly the prettiest bunch of homegrown hellebores I've seen. Linda Ross of @gardenclinicclub said that hellebores are shy sweet-natured flowers and the best way to show them off is to turn those pretty faces up in a float bowl. 3d

luisabrimble Today I 'second chaired' at @billy.law's food photography and styling workshop. I seriously seriously love it! Sharing some of my knowledge, what I love to shoot and helping the attendees what to look for when they're composing their images. Really awesome finding out everyone's motivation too in what they want to learn from the workshop. As always the best way to learn is by practicing and just keep shooting. Learn to get comfortable with your camera settings so it comes as a second nature to you. You will be rewarded with the luxury to think creatively without worrying about your settings. Thank you @billy.law for the opportunity in doing this with you. 4d

luisabrimble The Filipino way of extracting fresh coconut milk.

luisabrimble So I booked a Bastille Day celebration and activities for Beth and her friend Lani at @theschoolinstagram. I ended up staying so I can listen to lots of French accents and acquired a new skill in finger knitting too. These girls seriously knitted all these today. So much fun @floreaddison! I decided I really want to learn French so that we can live in the South of France one day. We can dream! Happy Bastille Day for tomorrow. 2w

luisabrimble 'Make the small things unforgettable' - quote by @lukedavie. I don't ever want 'busy-ness' to be the reason for not taking the time to say thank you. Today I'm reminded that it's more important then ever to step back, appreciate and be very grateful as always. I want to take this opportunity once again say thank you so very much to each and everyone who generously supported Alphabet Family Journal through Kickstarter and to everyone who bought a copy online and through our stockists. Thank you very much for helping us make it happen. As I look in to the future of AFJ, it seems that the automatic reaction what's the next BIG thing? But right now I'm thinking the opposite what if SMALLER IS BETTER? Take the time and challenge myself to find a way to make it work with a smaller print run? A publication only for the wonderful community of supporters and believers. So once again thank you thank you thank you to everyone who supported AFJ. Regramming this photo by @sherreenl. 3w

  •   _housefrau I can feel your pain, in making a decision at this point, because there is no wrong and wright...there never is actually anyway...however, I just wanted to say, that I truly respect & love what you have archived with AFJ! From being a gorgeously bold idea in your head to become a printed magazine, filled with honest, warming stories & images is something you can be utterly proud of Luisa! Thank you so much for all the work you put into AFJ!!! Xx 3w

luisabrimble Finally we managed to convince Beth Kirby of @local_milk and @rebekkaseale to come to Australia in September this year! I'm teaming up with these incredibly talented ladies for a Practical Food Photography & Styling Workshop. We'll be exploring the creation of content through photography, food, florals, and textiles... in Sydney (location: @thelostandfounddept) & Melbourne (location: @butterland_). Join us for two days in Sydney delving into baking, florals, natural dying, styling and of course photography, both how to create beautiful photos and how to get them out there. We’re working with a wonderful team of partners— @thelostandfounddept, @butterland_, @localgatherings, @figandsalt, @katiemarxflowers, @afloralfrenzy, and @stephanie_somebody—to bring you the whole package. Link in profile for more info! Photo by @local_milk. 1mon

luisabrimble On my 30th birthday my brother and sister-in-law gifted me this @margaret_fulton Cookbook. Never in my wildest dream that 10 years later I will get to photograph the matriarch of Australian cooking. It truly was an incredible opportunity to be able to shoot a few lifestyle images for @kategibbs new cookbook, which will be published by @murdochbooks 1mon
