A Day With… Dandelion + Mallow

When you love what you do…

You know that old saying, “When you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life”? This quote popped into my head a few times during this shoot, both through conversations and just watching the magic unfold.

I was asked by Karina of Dandelion + Mallow, a local catering extraordinaire, to take some shots for her as she works in her kitchen. This is 100% my thing – shooting with people who are doing what they love, in the place they love. A one-hour shoot easily turned into 2.5 hours as we chatted about all things big and small – from practical knowledge on how to activate your nuts, to the big things like education and teaching people to be passionate about what they eat and how they eat it.

This is just a snapshot of our morning together, in her home-based kitchen in the seaside suburb of Gerringong. Oh and don’t get me started on her enviable garden – “It’s still a work in progress,” Karina tells me. If my garden was half as gorgeous and flourishing as this, I’d be laughing!
