Freelance photographer and stylist specializing in food and beverage, farms, and travel.
Small business consultant helping brands to craft a style and photo library that accurately tells their story whether they choose to hire a photographer or create content in-house.
Few things inspire me more than food and the culture that surrounds what, why, and how we eat. Photographing food and drink, the farms where our food is grown, and cultural food experiences through travel allows me to capture these beautiful moments whether they are halfway around the world or right in my own kitchen.
My work in photography is a passion that has evolved over the past 10 years. Every component of food, from growing and serving it to the environment it is enjoyed in, creates a special moment. My goal is to capture that moment; the moment that best tells the story that you wish to share.
I am a self-taught freelance photographer and stylist. My background in science prepared me well for the technical side of photography. My travel, living abroad, study of nutrition, recipe development, and writing have put me in touch with my creative side and the art of food culture. I have attended numerous instructional workshops and courses on general photography, food photography, and food styling.
I also have a passion for craft beer. I wrote and photographed the book, Food on Tap: Cooking with Craft Beer. It published with Countryman Press in fall 2017. My new book, Beer Bread, will publish in early 2020.
