This styled shoot was created for Sweet Darlings Patisserie's Classics Collection. Their best selling, staple flavors that customers absolutely adore. The shoot was inspired by all things classic and glamorous. We added in some modern touches to really bring together the two worlds of Old Hollywood and the contemporary Parisian femme.
There are five flavors in this collection, and as so I styled one main photograph to showcase the entire collection, as well as five uniquely styled photographs for each flavor story.
One of everyone's favorite flavors is chocolate, and this chocolate ganache macaron enhances the classic flavor and is sure to please a variety of palettes.
The styling of this flavor story was inspired by an elegant neutral color palette. I used gold, cream and soft blush to portray the upscale twist on a traditional flavor.
These Luscious Lemon macarons have me wishing for crisp Spring days, which is exactly what inspired this styled photograph. I imagined myself as a young twenty-something Parisian girl, making last-minute final touches to my makeup and sipping a tall glass of cool water with freshly squeezed lemon, choosing the perfect outfit to wear to the garden party where I will be meeting my friends later that afternoon. Where, of course, we will be enjoying lemon macarons.
Ravishing Raspberry macarons remind me of pure romance and whimsy. They are the flavor of macarons that a boy would lovingly give to his girlfriend for their anniversary. This styled photograph was inspired by the girlfriend's getting ready routine for their anniversary: adding a touch of pink lipstick, donning beautiful jewels and gold heels, finishing her look with a spray of Chanel and a sip of bubbly.
The Perfect Pistachio macaron is a classic flavor that has a bit of edge. It was the perfect flavor for a modern twist on the classic Audrey Hepburn. Classic pearls, sunnies and Chanel mixed with modern makeup, Kate Spade, and candy.
What is the perfect accompaniment to macarons? A cup of coffee, of course! That is why I adore this Perky Coffee macaron flavor. This styled story was inspired by a quiet Sunday morning, sipping coffee and eating macarons while enjoying your favorite book on your apartment patio and dreaming about the fresh flowers that you will pick up from the local farmer's market later that afternoon.
Are you curious to see if these macarons are as delicious as they are darling? You can order a dozen or half dozen of the Classics Collection online, or if you are local to Nashville you can swing by The Village Market in Hillsboro Village to pick some up in person from their adorable macaron cart!
