Little Leopard Book Turns 3!

Whitney Bond Little Leopard Book 3 Year Blogoversary Photo Shoot

For the first time in almost 2 years I’m blogging on Little Leopard Book about something other than food, I’m actually blogging about blogging!

Today, I’m celebrating the 3 year blogoversary of Little Leopard Book. It was three years ago today that I was sitting on my couch in LA, when I opened my laptop and wrote this first post.

A three sentence post, that began a journey that has changed my life forever.

I’m so excited to share my favorite images from the Spring 2013 LLB photo shoot with Kenneth Ruggiano!

Kenneth is responsible for the amazing images you see around LLB’s social media pages which came from the very first Little Leopard Book photo shoot almost exactly a year ago. I was so excited when the opportunity arose to work with him again!

The first look was very special for me because the dress is one that my Mom wore in the 70s!

I’m lucky enough to have a Mom with timeless style and I was extremely proud to wear her dress in the shoot!

The next look is basically what you will find me wearing on a daily basis in the kitchen: leopard jeans, t shirt and neon green apron, gotta have that pop of color!

I’m actually kind of obsessed with this apron I found at World Market the morning of the shoot!  It’s going to be so fun for summer BBQ’s!

We then moved the shoot outdoors to catch me in one of my favorite places: at the grill!

Then it was back inside to mix up some more cupcake batter while showing love to my favorite NBA team, the OKC Thunder!

Next, we grabbed a couple images while I wrote out my dinner menu on the awesome Hanging Wall Menu I created!

This look was very special to me because it included two of my most prized possessions: the original Little Leopard Book and my Grandma Meme’s crystal bell.

When I was a little girl my Meme always let me ring the bell when dinner was ready.  I took such pride in letting everyone know it was time to eat!  When we lost her a couple years back, I asked my Dad if I could have the bell so that I could continue on my tradition of ringing the dinner bell in her honor. Every day I look at the bell and remember the amazing woman she was and all that she taught me about cooking, food, life and family!

As the sun began to set on the LLB photo shoot, we grabbed one last look with a very special Little Leopard Oven Mitt, given to me at Christmas by my Dad!

And that’s a wrap!

Thanks so much for checking out the images from our shoot!  It was such a fun day and I’m so excited to share the pictures with you all!

I will be selecting one of the above images as the new default LLB homepage photo!  I’d love to hear which one is your favorite!

Cheers and Happy Cooking from LLB 🙂

Little Leopard Book Holiday Photo Shoot

Last week I had the pleasure of working with Photographer, Drew Casey, for the first time. A fellow Okie with several mutual friends it was the perfect match for the Little Leopard Book holiday shoot!

I love the holidays, decorating for them, cooking for them and most of all… throwing parties for them!

I wanted to take pictures that incorporated all of the above to show my little leopard holiday spirit across the blog and around the LLB social media universe!  Thanks to Drew for helping me accomplish just that!
