Food Branding Photography with Barrett’s Cookie & Biscuit Bar // Walnut Hill

The Branding Experience



I'm a NC based brand photographer (but I love to travel for work+fun). Joanna Gaines is my spirit animal, and in another life (maybe this one) I'd probably move to Waco, TX!

I'm always down to try a new local coffee shop (even better if they have lavender latte), and working on mastering the perfect at home brew recipe. 


Where are all my cookie & biscuit lovers?

When you mix delicious food and beautiful branding photography, I’d say that is a pretty good combination, wouldn’t you agree? A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to photograph Ellen for some updated food branding photography. Ellen is the owner of Barretts Cookie & Biscuit Bar based in Raleigh, NC!

Before I share more about her branding experience, I’d love to give a huge shout out to Megan with Hosea House Collective! Megan and I collaborated on this branding experience and I couldn’t be more excited with how it turned out. Megan is the owner of HHC- a wedding & event planning business also based in the Raleigh area. If you’re getting married in 2021 or beyond, be sure to reach out to Megan for all your planning needs!

Okay, now back to the cookies & biscuits!

Branded Photography for Ellen with boxed cookies to showcase her cookie shipment options.

Ellen started Barretts with the inspiration of her Grandmother so we made sure to include a lot of special touches including her grandmother’s rolling pins, measuring cups, wooden dough bowls, etc we wanted to make sure it was a part of the photographs.

One of Ellen’s special request was to see if we could include farm animals … and well Ellen’s wish was granted and we got to visit with some of the neighborhood cows! Ellen & her husband, Victor fed them Ritz crackers – it was so cute!!!

Once we finished all of the photographs of Ellen & the behind the scenes of what it takes to make her delicious cookies & biscuits, Ellen & Victor had a moment of photographs of just them!

One of my favorite parts of a branding experience is when they include their family. Because after all, we are encouraged by the people we surround ourselves with!

I want to give a huge shout out again to those involved that made this day so special! Thank you all so much!
