    Super helpful information!! I have food photography down pat but the lifestyle shots still trip me up sometimes. I need to research cat-friendly plants so that I can have some around the house that won’t hurt my furbabies. I have used some silk flowers successfully in a few shots but you have to be really careful to keep the fact that they are fake hidden!

    Hi Amanda! Yes, good call on the silk flowers! I know that some non-toxic & pet friendly plants (especially for cats) include african violet, air plants., some ferns (Maidenhair, Boston, and Bird’s Nest), prayer plant, and spider plant. Or you can always try experimenting with other fake plants for your lifestyle shots (seriously, I love doing this). Let me know how it goes!

    Nice piece! Definitely gave me some good ideas on using more props to expand my brand presence through photography. Now that I have some studio lighting and a proper set up I’ll have to goof around with this more!
