Portland Food Photography with KyiKyi
When Kyikyi reached out to us about doing some branding photography for Himalayan Dumplings, I got giddy. Andrew and I are big foodies and I’ve recently been in a deep dive learning all about Asian cusine; how it’s made, common ingredients, and it’s historical impact on regional foods. Combine our passion for food with photography and supporting a woman-owned business and it’s the perfect trifecta.
Kyikyi was looking for a few things from her Portland food photography session:
- Some great headshots to use on her website and packaging.
- Photographs that include plenty of blank space for digital placement of marketing materials and messaging.
- An inside look at the love and attention she puts into making each dumpling.
About Himalayan Dumplings
Kyikyi started the first woman-owned Tibetan food brand in the United States. She started with pop-up events “cooking Tibetan food out of a 10×10 tent, with borrowed cookware, a tin cash box, and [her] cherished family recipes.” Her momo (the Tibetan word for all things dumplings) became so popular that she decided to package them up for sale across the country. Her momo are much larger than your average dumpling at 40 grams each – and boy do they smell good… even raw!
While Kyikyi works on getting her dumplings in stores across the country, you can currently pre-order them on her website www.himalayandumplings.com for local pickup in Beaverton, Oregon. In addition to dumplings she also serves hand pies and some tasty Tibetan hot sauces. Yum!
