You would have people hooked if they could try it just one time. You cook the food, clean the kitchen, send the invoices, set the scene, and end up too exhausted to even think about a well-lit, perfectly edited photo.
And when you DO post a photo, it looks decent, but it's not the kind of image that's going to get Dwayne Wade & Gabrielle Union to send you a DM. (God, I've seen what you've done for others...)
You work so hard, but still feel like you can't break past this ceiling to attract amazing, high-dollar, high-influence clients.
The not-so-public truth: All entrepreneurs have secret weapons. And having great, effortless photos could be yours. Having consistent, appetizing content to show to your ideal clientele and brands you use is necessary to win "Master Chef" at life.
And that's where I come in.

MY SERVICES ARE FOR YOU IF:
You're a busy, modern-day chef that wants to focus in your 'zone of genius', and want to leave the shooting & styling to another professional.
You are building a professional online portfolio or website to make someone say "find out who their people are."
You host dining experiences, create cookbooks, or cater events, and want to have sharp photos to market those services professionally.
You value showing off the details in your food, and understand that people taste with their eyes FIRST.
You've never had a photographer capture your food before, so you want to make sure it's done right the very first time. OR You've used a photographer in the past, but since they didn't specialize in food, they didn't know what to look for.
You're a restaurant owner, and you want your restaurants to have some UNIQUE and FRESH photos to add to your traditional portfolio.
IF YOU SAID "YES" TO ANY OF THESE..
THE USUAL PROCESS:
"I HAVE QUESTIONS!"
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY SESSION?
As soon as you possibly can! I usually suggest 2-3 weeks before your desired shoot date, so we have enough time to walk through what you're looking for, and allow me to find the right props for you!
WHERE CAN I USE MY PHOTOS?
If you book one of my packages, you will have a limited copyright release. This release allows you to use your photos on your social media profiles, website, and online portfolio! All you have to do is tag me! (It's stated in your contract :)
If you're looking to do a cookbook, magazine, or anything involving advertising, that requires a seperate licensing fee. Make sure you mention this in your consultation so we can get you the proper paperwork, and avoid any legal mishaps!
WHAT'S MY INVESTMENT INCLUDE?
The three non-commercial (available to use on social media, website, and marketing materials) packages include the following:
WHAT IF I NEED COMMERCIAL WORK/ COOKBOOK/ MORE PHOTOS??
Fill out the contact form, and I'll respond as soon as possible to get the scope of your project! :)
BOOK A CONSULTATION
When you're ready to make all the other chefs jealous, you can book a call with me to talk about your vision!
SCHEDULE A SHOOT DATE
We set a date that works for us both! We can decide whether its on location, or a food "drop off"!
CONCEPT/ PROP SHOP
I create mood boards, and color combos to fit your vision! Then, I go look for things to make this shoot perfect!
Based on the location option you decided, I shoot this day, and we get to see the vision come to life!
