I'm a food photographer and stylist in Ripon, CA providing food photography services in the Central Valley and Bay Area. In addition to food photography, I'm also an award-winning wedding photographer (with my husband, James). I was never much of a cook or baker, but I always loved seeing photos of food (and of course, eating it!), so it was only natural that I'd do food photography! Even though I'm not a fan of being in the kitchen, when we moved into our Ripon house, the first home DIY project I did was to repaint my kitchen. It's mint on the bottom cabinets and white on the top. I loved creating an atmosphere that made me WANT to cook. Similarly, I love creating shots that make others want to eat the food I'm photographing. There are a lot of stories behind food (how it is made, where the ingredients came from, the history of the recipe, etc), and it's so much fun to show that off through photography.
So, enjoy my food stories, and maybe we can make some together!
