There are many things that come together to create good food photography: your photography skills, good use of the light, some cooking knowledge. But one of the most important skill is one that is often overlooked: your food styling skills can make or break an image.
When I arrived in D.C.with my husband in 2012, I had no idea what I was going to do. The plan was for me to go back to “school” and for my husband to find a job that could sustain us both. But as I was trying to figure out what to go back to […]
2018 started off pretty low. I was barely making ends meet, and the little bit I was bringing combined with my husband’s salary was just enough to get us through the month, which is a little bit scary when you have a 18 month old to feed. We had decided a few months before that […]

I love getting to work with unique clients who truly make a difference in the world and Dog Tag Bakery is certainly one of them! One of my past clients, Betsy Eves, from Javacupcake (you can read their client highlight post here), reached out to me last year for a photo shoot and from that […]
Happy April Friends! It’s slowly warming up here in D.C. and I’m itching to celebrate soon with a spring-time brunch. When I lived in France, I felt like it was much easier just to pop into a friends house unannounced and whip up some brunch; in the states, we’re all very spread out and scheduled […]
