So much of the work that I do is focused on women's portraiture that I rarely share my love for food photography. Food photography or should I say the entire commercial photography world (product, fashion, and architectural) was introduced to me during my time at Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale. Of course, I loved fashion photography; planning out wardrobe, location, models, hair & makeup, but food photography holds a special place in my heart.
I can't quite express the feelings I have when I am in the kitchen creating a new recipe and bring the recipe to life through a photograph. It's almost therapeutic and recharges me creatively.
Plus, I am a self proclaimed foodie who has challenged herself to eat foods that nourish the body and soul with whole food ingredients and limited packaged and processed foods. For those of you might not know this, I actually attended the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in 2013 to learn more about the world of health and wellness.

Oh, and yes... I do photograph food for restaurants, food bloggers, health coaches, and cookbook developers - send me an email if you want to chat in greater detail about your project.
