Only a few miles from my house. Dangerous.








So you might have notice now the blog says 'julie takes photos' instead of 'always with butter'

I like the name 'always with butter' its cute, a bit silly but i like it. But I feel like this blog should represent me and the name just doesn't seem to fit it anymore.

I used to get obsessive over foods, in a good way. Amazing butter. Beautiful cheeses. The perfect pie. etc etc.

But photography has always been my main interest and objective with the site. The food is nice but the photos are what I truly care about. And after working with pastries all day long at my day job, this is true more than ever. I just want the photos.

So I switched up the header to 'julie takes photos' a little name that for years and years has always been my email address and probably the only username I have for any silly site. It's my thing. 'julie takes photos' simple, straight forward.

Thats all that changed. The header. Changing my twitter, site address would just be annoying now. No need. Everything else is the same. Including food photos and more often than not the recipe.

I just wanted to see something different when I post on here.


So that is my explaination.

As long as you promise that you'll still post some recipes from time to time, we promise not to march against the new name of the blog ;)

No need for explanations. It's good to change things up and stay true to what you really want.
Love your photographs!

@Magda
Thanks! Yeah I thought I better just say a little something about the name change, just incase people wondered. Not trying to apologize or anything, just explain what was going on in my head :)

Bravo! Good for you! But also good for me....it was just what I needed to hear this morning! Your site is so beautiful I dawdle here and revel. The food is lovely...but really, it's more about the beauty you lay before us. I thank you for that! Enjoy arriving at your own site, the one that announces what you've long known to be True!

I like the change and think it's you. Photography is always first for me too. Btw, did you get the new Bouchon Bakery book? It's amazing. Got to meet TK a couple weeks ago and he signed my copy :)

Gosh, macaroons are my favourite! Awesome blog!

Mónica Ortelli said...

I like the new name. If it represents your, nothing to say. The link will bring me here always, whatever the name was.
Nice pictures. I really love your styling; also the pastry you shot and the recipes. Thank you.
