Hi there, I’m Christi. Welcome to Love From The Oven!
I’m a baker, writer, cookbook author, food photographer, recipe developer, marketer, brand ambassador and lover of sprinkles. I’m also a mama to two sweet girls, and a life long resident of Phoenix, Arizona.
When I bake, I bake with LOVE. And butter. And sprinkles. Lots of sprinkles.
Want to say hello? Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When I’m not in the kitchen, my hands are pretty full with my two beautiful girls. You can read a bit more about that, and our life as a special needs family over at HerScoop.
These are a few of my favorite things…
My amazing daughters, my fabulous friends and family, Open Adoption, Diet Coke, photography, watching my daughters dance, baking for friends and family, music, rainy days, a big fluffy feather pillow at the end of the day, broken in jeans, Dairy Queen Caramel Chocolate Chip Blizzards, 80′s hair bands, frozen margaritas with lots of salt, Bravo shows on my DVR, decorating for the holidays, Disneyland, my Amazon Prime membership, fondue at The Melting Pot, sarcasm, my cocker spaniel Milo & shih tzu Jack, sleeping in (or at least the memory of it), reading, bright colors, Marc Jacobs handbags, and my husband doing the dishes. And sprinkles. But I probably already said that.
I’m often asked what kind of camera I have. I shoot with a Canon 7D and use a variety of lenses. One that I highly recommend, especially to those who are new to using a DSLR, is the Canon 50mm f/1.8. It is a fantastic lens for the money. I adore the Canon 17-55mm, a hidden gem of the Canon EF-S lenses if you ask me, it’s on my camera 80% of the time. I also love the Canon 100mm macro lens. I edit my photos Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop. My best advice for photos? Turn off your flash, practice, and take a LOT of pictures.
Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
