Never reaching right customers
Your website doesn’t reflect the value of your brand
You feel unseen in a competitive market

You or your team only

Most things in life are not instant or magical, but replacing the right photos in the right place is like snapping your fingers and immediately changing the way you are seen.

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?

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."
