I’m Amanda, I'm gonna spice up your food photos and shake up your content plan!

I used to be you! I owned one of the first allergy-friendly personal chef businesses before gluten free was a “thing”. And I got burned out fast. I know how hard it is to run a food business and I know how freaking expensive it is!


But my struggles brought me to you. I found my gift for food and brand photography and knew I was meant to serve chefs and food brands just like you. I have worked with hundreds of businesses over the years who struggled to capture their story visually, with purposeful photography that set them apart and made them unique.

The thing is, you need more than pretty pictures of your food. You need purposeful images so you can set your business in motion. 


I am ready to build you a plan and set your business on fire, are you?

hear what our clients say...

After her first food photography session: “The value of the digital imagery is simply amazing. My food photos are working to help me connect with my ideal clients. THANK YOU!”

Several sessions later: "I just booked three clients in one day, so something is working. My photos created the shift in my business that I wanted to happen this year."

You constantly get price shoppers
Scared to raise prices
No time for web design or marketing
