I have always enjoyed any domestic-related work, let it be decorating my home, collecting antiques (items ranging from A-Z), spending time in my beautiful garden, cooking, baking and whatever else (People often call me Martha Jr. lol...) But those activities has always been with amateurish results.

After a few years here on dA, i have grown so much! I am able to grow as much as I have -  It is because of YOU! All of your feedback, your constant support and comments, I really don't think it is possible without you guys!

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart :heart: I wish you know how much I appreciate you!

:heart: It always makes me extra happy when you guys enjoys my food creations...

Hi my friends,


As some of you know, I have been working with Jelly Belly Candy Company for the past couple of months. Yesterday, they posted photos I took for their spring collection on three different websites. Please see links:

1. www.facebook.com/jellybelly  - The White Chocolate Jelly Belly Lollipops

2. www.pinterest.com/jellybelly - The images i took are - White Chocolate Jelly Belly Lollipops in glass containers & The Chocolate Ganache Filled Strawberry with Jelly Belly (these are tutorial images)

3. www.instagram.com/jellybellycandyco - I think you guys can tell the images i took...


It would mean so much to me if you could stop by these sites and "like" the photo! Leave a comment if you visited the sites on here. Thank you so much. This really means a lot to me 
 
 
Have a beautiful day





Hugs
~Theresa

i do feel blessed...As i express my gratitude, i must never forget that my highest appreciation is not just utter empty words, but to live by them. 

so...this project wrapped today, i thought i would share the good news with you guys...i was hired by Jelly Belly Candy Company shooting commercial photos for them for their new product lines. Here is a  en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelly_Be… for this wonderful company. From concept to the finished images, they were 100% of my original creations (it is extremely flattering Jelly Belly gave me the freedom for the element of the artistic executions and their full trust in me. i could not have worked for a better company). Based upon the signed contract, Jelly Belly was committed to purchase 3 images, but they ended up purchasing 8 images in total. Needless to say i am extremely happy, more importantly my kids are so proud of me! When you see their new commercial ad. in print in the coming months, you can easily say..."I totally know the photographer who took the photos". Cool eh!!

they sent me nearly 15 pounds of these tasty samples, i plan on donate all of them to American Cancer Society (they are having a local baked goods and candy sales), 10 pounds of the Jelly Belly Beans will be donated in the name of Kim-s-schultza (note: she deleted her account recently) brilliant artist, please stop by her gallery and say hello...


btw, theresa helmer photography website is being developed even as we speak, when it is up and running, i will let you guys know...i am moving forward becoming a professional food photographer. i know i will have your support all the way.

Lastly...If you can dream it, you can do it ~Walt Disney

I woke up this morning to this horrific news, I felt sick to my stomach, the instant pain and the acute sadness are unbearable! www.chicagotribune.com/news/ch…. I am so deeply sorry...for all those little faces who left us. Adults too. I can only wonder for those parents who kissed their beautiful child good-bye for a lovely day at school...Now this! One child said "I only want Xmas. I don't want to die!"

I feel the need to talk about this, let's talk about this insanity that makes no sense at all.  

But...the day like today I still chose to believe this is a beautiful world. "Heal the broken hearted and bind up their wounds"
