The creative act of cooking, and the joy and nourishment of connecting over a good meal. There’s not much in life I enjoy more.
For more than 5 years I ran my own successful portrait photography business, but with the pandemic came more time at home, and more time to prepare food. Ultimately it brought me back to my roots—photographing food and products, as I’d done more than 15 years ago in San Francisco, after attending photography school in Missoula, Montana.
Preparing food and styling sets is one of my favorite aspects of food photography. I see potential photoshoots everywhere, and love to collect props for shoots. From baking cupcakes and meticulously creating a frosting swirl, to carefully crafting cookie set-ups, I love to experiment with new recipes and new looks. I work with both small businesses and national brands.
When I'm not behind the camera, you can usually find me outside. I am an ocean lover and surfer. I enjoy gardening, running, rock climbing, hiking, and traveling with my husband and daughter. The three of us also cook and bake together in our small kitchen, and enjoy family meals by the ocean in Nahant, Massachusetts.
