“I’m not going to start a blog until I have a name I love.” That's what I kept telling myself way back in October of 2008. I spent about a month going back and forth on this name or that. Late one night in November “Honey & Jam” popped into my head. I was drinking tea - with honey and eating toast - with jam. It just worked. In some weird way, it fit me.
I’m Hannah Queen, baker and photographer. I'm 23, I live in the mountains of North Georgia, and I love Jesus. I like simple things, fresh ingredients and flowers, tea with honey, good music (mostly folk and bluegrass), trips to the farmers market and early mornings. I’m the happiest when I’m in the kitchen, creating something tasty, and when I’m behind my camera, taking pictures of everything I see.

A couple of FAQ:
What camera do you shoot with? All shots before September 2010 were taken with either a Canon digital rebel xsi or a Canon digital rebel xt, with a 50mm f1.8 lens or a 50mm f1.4 lens. All shots after September 2010 are taken with a Canon 5d mark ii with a 50mm f1.4 lens.
Where do you get your props? They come from all over the place. Ikea, target, anthropologie, shopterrain.com, etsy shops.
What kind of lighting set up do you use? I shoot exclusively with natural light. I have a table set up by a window, and use a piece of foam core board to reflect.
What's your favorite food? Bread. And roasted chicken. And roasted sweet potato. Oh, and these brownies.
