In short, I photograph all things food and drink! I take on wholesale food & drink related product brands, restaurants, chefs, cookbooks, publications and more! I also take a limited number of clients in need of recipe development for their blogs and websites (typically my product-based clients add this option on to their photography).

What kind of clients do you take on? +

FAQ

Close

Yes! I have clients from all over the world who ship directly to my studio. 

CAN WE SHIP OUR PRODUCT TO YOU IF OUR COMPANY IS FAR AWAY? +

FAQ

Close

Yes! This is a common request. You can be as hands-on as you’d like! I have clients that provide their shot list, discuss style and props with me beforehand and like to be more hands off on the actual shoot date. Some do all of the above and also like to be on-call via text message throughout the shoot day. We can chat about your preference during your initial consultation.

CAN WE BE VIRTUALLY PRESENT DURING OUR SHOOT IF WE SHIP OUR PRODUCT? +

FAQ

Close

Yes! I have shot for food features in magazines, apps, cookbooks, large recipe blogs and more. It’s one of my favorite things!

DO YOU SHOOT FOR PUBLICATIONS LIKE COOKBOOKS OR MAGAZINE FEATURES? +

FAQ

Close

Yes! Lots of my clients need their product used/styled in different recipes, so cooking in-studio is very common. I dabble in culinary arts and do some recipe development, so this is such a fun part of my job.

DO YOU COOK FOR IN-STUDIO SHOOTS? +

FAQ

Close

This varies based on client needs and variables during the shoot. For my product-based brands and cookbook projects that have heavier styling needs, 1-3 set-ups per hour is typical. For my restaurant and on-site clients, 4-5 dishes/drinks/set-ups is typical. 

HOW MANY DISHES/PRODUCTS CAN YOU SHOOT IN ONE HOUR? +

FAQ

I am not stingy with images! I cull through all of the files and give you a really good variety of each item we shoot. 

HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU DELIVER? +

FAQ

DOUBLE YES. My dream? Shooting on-location in Iceland for a publication, highlighting their must-visit local eateries. So, if you know of anyone looking for a photographer for this, let me know! ;) I will hop on a plane and head just about anywhere to photograph food!

DO YOU TRAVEL? +

I have a really large prop collection, complete with glasses, dinnerware, cake stands and so much more. I also have a wide variety of backgrounds! We will chat about your style visions and needs for your shoot and I will curate props and backdrops based on that. If you have specific prop requests, feel free to let me know! 

Do you provide props? +
