Truthfully, my path to food photography came from my love of photography NOT my love of baking. I didn’t bake or cook with any regularity prior to discovering food photography. What drew me to food photography was that I could always have a subject – I didn’t have to wait for a friend to request a photo or for the landscape to inspire me.
I started shooting in natural light and have recently learned how to shoot with artificial light. My advice to new photographers would be to start shooting with artificial light as soon as you can! I personally find it even easier to shoot in than natural light. There is obviously a learning curve and a financial cost involved, but it has been well worth the effort and money! I’d recommend Joanie Simon’s Artificial Light Academy if you’re wanting to learn artificial light. It’ll save you time and sanity 🙂 I’m happy to share what I’m learning along the way in hopes that it’ll help you.
In addition to sharing all things photography, I love to talk about what I’m learning about Instagram. Specifically how to grow your account and what habits can totally kill your engagement. If that interests you, I’ve listed a few links below!

This is the place where I’ll share tips about composition, lighting, equipment, software and anything else food photography related! So glad to have you here and if you ever have any questions or if there is anything you’d like to me to cover on a blog post, please don’t hesitate to send me an email!
