This weekend my roommates and I set out on an adventure to Columbia, Missouri to start looking for props for our capstone project.
We are creating a live well, eat healthy type of cookbook for one of our roommate's sisters (who is the client). After planning out what recipes we will be making, and what types of informational spreads we will be creating, we made a large shopping list for all the items we will need for daily photo shoots.
There were tonssss of thrift stores in Columbia to choose from - and they were perfect for finding more rustic types of pieces and quirky props. We walked out of each thrift store in hand with something new and cool. After the thrift store adventures we ran to places like Target, Hobby Lobby, and Pier one to find the items we hadn't found throughout the day. Picking out fabric really got me excited about the project - you can see some images of the napkins on the top photo.
Last night we unpacked everything and it was crazy how much we had bought - and on a budget. We spent around $120 dollars for tons of bowls, mugs, cups, plates, silverware and not too mention all of our fun random finds. There were old cheese graters, measuring cups, and pasta bowls we found along the way as well.
Overall, a more than fun and successful trip was made to Columbia - and we had a blast taking photos for fun last night.
