Hi all! I’m Brandi, the expert recipe developer, food/product photographer and writer behind Posh Little Designs.
I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and two girls and started PLD as a creative outlet in 2013.
Over time, posh has evolved into a reliable resource delicous recipes and inspiration, highlighting passions for food, baking, photography and family. Below I share more details on how my baking and photography journey began, and the inspiration that helped shape me and the posh brand along the way.
I had interest in photography in childhood, following in the footsteps of my late father who was an aspiring photographer. In my 20s I worked in front of the camera with various professionals, where I developed an understanding of studio work and the process of taking a photo and editing from start to finish, (oftentimes editing my own images.) With this experience and my creative background, I planned to pursue photography, purchasing my first DSLR in 2013. From there I learned natural and artificial light food/product photography, publishing recipes for the blog and working with many wonderful clients along the way.
Food & Family
My mom’s cooking and baking has been a form of inspiration for me since I was young. Some of my best memories come from time spent in the kitchen watching her make cherry pie and wacky cake, along with cookies and cornbread for dinner on Sundays. Everything was always baked to perfection, which ignited the same style of baking in me, especially as I grew older and had my girls. One of my favorite memories from childhood was going over to my aunt’s to decorate Christmas cookies, an annual tradition! We would cover the cookies with about 2 inches of thick buttercream frosting but that was always the best part! Carrying those experiences into adulthood, it’s no surprise I got my start baking and decorating sugar cookies and treats for my daughter’s birthdays. From there I learned how to make more complex desserts, falling in love with French macarons and party foods, while developing new recipes, such as cocktails and dairy/gluten free/alternative desserts and ultimately taking photos of them to share with your here.
What to expect
In our home we often entertain and love hosting family over for gatherings, so you’ll find everything here from new sweets and desserts (dairy free & some gf), to quick cocktails, over 50 macaron recipes, family and home inspiration and more!
I aim to teach you all the steps to recreate the same recipes at home, while taking the fear out of more complex desserts by providing videos and step by step instructions for French macarons, pastry, royal icing and more!
A few favorite things:
When not working, you’ll find me with my husband and girls usually at soccer games on the weekends, since our eldest plays on traveling soccer teams. I love to explore new surroundings. Paris still has my heart. Gardening is another passion. Macarons and sugar cookies are still my favorite desserts to bake!
Posh Little Designs Shop
This shop is a collection of stylish supplies for hostesses and bakers alike! Founded in 2013.
Posh Little Designs shop was founded not long after creating the blog and it all began with cookie cutters.
Cookie cutters were the go-to tool to bake themed treats for my young daughter’s parties. This led to me designing original cutters and creative supplies that you can find in the Etsy shop today!
