I hear a lot how gorgeous my photos are. I get asked what kind of camera I use, what my lighting rig is, what editing program I use. While I do, typically, do some sort of crude editing its usually with preloaded Windows programs, or free online software. I take all my photos in natural light- never with any artificial lights or rigs, and many of my photos are still shot on a smartphone or 14 MP point-and-shoot. For today's post I wanted to go even more organic. You see, sometimes I spend so much time staging, framing, and taking photos, I don't get to actually live in the moment of the story. So, thanks to YumEarth Organics, today's photos are a little less sparkly, but extra adorable.
Miss Edna relies on retirement income to get by and spends much of what she takes in from her children's parents on activities and events she plans to help make their year just a little more special. She rents bounce houses, drives them to the park, and holds seasonal parties out of her own pocket. She is an amazing human being, and so are the children she watches. So, when YumEarth informed me of their new Easter packaging and offered to send us some samples I new immediately I wanted to do something special for Miss Edna and her after-school kids. I headed into the local dollar store and spent about $35 to create some Easter baskets.
Sour Beans are also delightfully Vegan, adding an extra level of Eco-consciousness. Miss Edna is very careful what she gives her tiny charges before sending them home to their parents and was especially appreciative that all of the sweets in their Easter baskets were all-natural and gluten free.
