The Chef Behind the Lens



I first picked up a camera when I was about 10 years old.  When I reached high school my Dad gave me a really cool 35mm camera that he had brought back from Germany when he was in the service. Needless to say I was hooked and I have never looked back.  Along my journey I went to culinary school where I graduated with honors and I had a new love...preparing fine cuisine.  As a trained chef and a photographer I am combining my passion for the culinary arts with my love of photography.  I have moved on from my first camera to bigger and better but I will always carry the memory of my very first 35mm camera and the joy it brought me in those days.  Today I love capturing the beauty all around us and especially in the food we grow, raise, prepare and eat.

I am based in the mid-west but when it comes to photographing there are no boundaries.  My ultimate objective is to provide exquisite culinary photography with a personal touch that will leave you salivating for more. That being said I also love photographing weddings.  It is so fun to be included in the couples special day and to capture the memories that they will cherish forever.  Children, especially preschool and elementary kids are so entertaining and made wonderful subjects as well. 


~~~ and YES !! I love to travel ~~~
