My name is Marie Dorfschmidt - foodblogger and influencer from Stuttgart, Germany. Foodstyling and foodphotography are truly one if my passions with which I want to show how easy healthy food and a healthy lifestyle can be achieved.
What do I do best?
I make people see that healthy food and a healthy lifestyle can be achieved easily! While most of my pictures look like it took hours to make them I am actually really fast when I take pictures and it usually does not take longer than 10 minutes. That’s what I do best. Taking mouth watering shots that are actually just a freestyle of my creativity.
What makes me the best version of myself?
I am 100% devoted to what I do. When I have a goal I just go for it with passion and creativity. Always working out the bet and most efficient ways to achieve my goals.
What are my aspirations?
I aspire to be successful both in my personal life and with my business. I want to help people with what I do and state a good example. This is why I soon want to publish my first eBook and write another cookbook by 2020. I also want to be able work from anywhere in the world. And I guess by being a photographer it is more than possible.
My Biggest Success?
Everything I have accomplished until today. I’ve put my Blog and Instagram up from nothing - one year ago. Today I am part of such a wonderful community, having wonderful opportunities, even got to be the face of a TV commercial that just started to run national wide on three major TV channels. All while having a day-job and two kids.
My Most Challenging Moment?
I guess the most challenging part ist to balance everything, personal and business, while not making compromises - Or at least not too big ones. I love what I do and I guess that’s the most important part that just keeps me going.
Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game!
If you never try you never know and no-one ever got happy by not trying.
My Favorite People/Role Models?
My favorite ones are Jamie Oliver and Deliciously Ella and Saline Gabrielian. They’ve inspired me for many years now! They were the ones showing me that healthy eating can be just simple, quick and easy. And I just fell in love with that food.
My Favorite Places/Destinations?
Rotterdam has been one of my favorite cities so far! As much as Funchal - Madeira. These are the two places I want to go back this year! Although they are so different when you compare them they both have something similar. They made me feel calm in a very special way. That’s what I always seek when I visit new places: The way they make me feel.
My Favorite Products/Objects?
My notebook with real pen and paper! I just love to write stuff down by hand. Make some drawings, rewrite and have a look at them. It makes them so much more alive as it gives me freedom to create. The freedom that could never come from an electronic device.
My Current Passions?
It still is food photography. If I could I would just do that. I don’t know if it’s the styling or the photography part. Or maybe it is both in combination. I just love it and I guess this is what you can see coming through my pictures.
