Branding Photography Session with Vegan Cheese Maker & Owner of Wild Root Kitchen
Brand shoot spotlight on Vegan Chef Charlie Tomlinson.
After moving near Liverpool in July 2019, I went on a hunt to find (and try) as many vegan and vegetarian shops, cafes, and hangouts, as I possibly could. That, along with making friends, and transferring and building my photography business, was one of my main priorities!
As I was leaving one particular cafe one December day after a delicious sandwich, I noticed a flyer for a plant-based wellness retreat scheduled for following month, just after the New Year. In my quest to make friends, find photography work, and connect with like-minded souls, I reached out to offer my services at their upcoming event, and to my delight, they were happy to have me!
Charlie and Polly Tomlinson, mother-daughter wellness power duo, put on a lovely retreat that reinvigorated and inspired each attendee.
Charlie is an incredible food artist and chef who has studied fermentation, refined her skills and knowledge of gut-healthy foods, and has built a booming food delivery service in the midst of a global pandemic. She is known for your mouthwatering rainbow-colored graze boards and incredible cashew cheese creations. I can't wait until her cafe opens in Liverpool!
Our goal for Charlie's shoot was to document her preparing her signature product, graze boards, prepping her delivery boxes, showcasing her decadent vegan cheese, and capturing scenes of her products in action, including a picnic and fireside wine and graze board. Now I'm drooling!
I've lost track of how many times we've shot her cafe, retreats, family, pregnancy and products together! Here's a taste of what we've gotten up to over the years.
