I am passionate about seeing you succeed because I'm a chef and creative too!



Hey Chef! I am so passionate about seeing you succeed because I was a chef too!


I've been there and I see you! I've owned an allergy-friendly personal chef and catering business before gluten free was even “a thing”!


I relate to the struggle of trying to keep up with the demands of the kitchen while also trying to get around to marketing myself. I know what it's like to wake up at 4 a.m. to put bread in the oven or push out 1,500 raviolis, stand on my feet all day cooking, then get home at midnight to fall into bed and wake up the next day ready to do it all over again. Oh, and did I mention I did that while I did this I was also raising three kids on my own?! 


I admire what you do because I’ve seen how hard it is. I am so thankful for that season of my life because it brought me here to you. It also taught my kids the meaning of work-ethic and it allowed me to discover my love for the art of food photography. Combining everything I love and now I get to do what I love and love what I do, every-single-day!


I want to see you succeed — and I want to be a small part of helping you claim that success.  I want you to get results, or my work means nothing. I want to see you get a quality return on your investment in your brand.

Combining my business background and creative vision, I use photography to spice up your brand and help you stand apart in this huge culinary world!




My husband Craig and our kids! We have five grown children. Our home base is in Charlotte, North Carolina. I spend my days spent working with clients, having virtual "date-nights" with my hubby who is working abroad and hanging out with our 4-year-old puppy Lily!
