Whole Living is a Martha Stewart publication for people who want to make healthy choices in all aspects of their lives, including food. Raymond Hom is no stranger to the Martha Stewart brand and has shot for various publications under the umbrella including Martha Stewart Living and Martha Stewart Weddings. He was then an obvious choice to shoot the cover for Whole Living’s October 2012 issue.
The photo is of a fruit, granola and yogurt parfait in front of a crimson red background. At first Raymond test shot an already made parfait, but the composition and light wasn’t quite right. Food stylist Allison Attenborough had to start from scratch, slowly building the parfait layer by layer, adding nuts and pieces of fruit one at a time. The selected photo is currently sitting pretty as the cover on Whole Living’s Facebook page.
